From heading off to the gym at 5 am sharp, to hanging those vision boards up in every room, to learning a foreign language, the first of the year always brings a dizzying amount of goal activity. For business owners, however, it’s a bit more seamless. To say it is “business as usual” is not exactly an understatement, but it is a buzz kill. (So we won’t say that.)
• Make them measurable in small to large chunks of activity.
• Make them attainable.
• Have clear reasons for setting & achieving the goal.
• Have a reward system that motivates achievers.
• Last but not least, have a STRATEGY in place.
We know in business that without a strategy, goals are just words dangling on a whiteboard. They have no meaning because there’s no path to follow. Add strategy to those goals and then you have a whiteboard with wings.
Shape software is a business owner’s best friend because it literally shapes the activity you are already doing to achieve your goals. As a business, you want to achieve exponential growth, customer satisfaction, employee retention, increased brand awareness, all while continuing to attract new customers. That’s a lot. In order to achieve all those things, you need someone to have your back.
