5 Lessons Learned: Keys to Success Every Business Owner Needs To Know and some great resources and tools to use.
Let's dive deep into the five lessons learned keys to success that every business owner needs to know.
I spent a lot of time journaling and doing reflection this past year, it's something I do all the time, but this past year it brought me so much joy and it was such a good stress relief.
One thing is for sure, we plan and God laughs. But I still feel that planning is still such a good thing. I'm so grateful that I did set goals. And I do plan because I know by having goals I was able to set things up in my life that really almost prepared me for this on unforeseen circumstances that we faced.
So I go back to the thing of we plan God laughs. It's funny to me because even if you plan and organize everything you never actually have control.
I think it's really important that we understand that goal setting is just our wish list that has specific measurements attached to a date.
When you’re with someone, are you genuinely interested in what they have to say? When someone is speaking, are you really hearing what they are conveying, or are you thinking about what YOU are going to say next? And, perhaps more importantly, if you are not carefully listening to someone, how can you truly help them or satisfy their needs?
The art of listening – and of truly being present in the moment – is a major theme in my recent book, Beyond Common: 12 Essentials for Success in Life and in the Workplace. I felt that so many people didn’t understand that it’s a lifelong journey to listen, to be present, and to be a part of the conversation in a way that helps as many people as possible.
Training your team will help you get more clients and stand out from your competition. If you have a team and a culture that supports training and everything that training is about, they share it with the customers you serve.
That is a great tool to walk you through how to set up what training you need and it is going to guide you in a really exciting way just for you.
People often reach out and direct message me all the time on social media and they'll always say, OK, I have a really small budget and I don't know what to do to start training myself or my team. I say to them, the best resource I have is my book Beyond Common,12 Essentials for Success in Life and in the Workplace. This is a really low cost way and it's a very easy read. You could buy a copy for everyone on your team and get the whole team excited about personal and professional development.
