How many virtual meetings have you had recently? There is a lot of talking going on, but how much are we communicating? Communication is two-way. The measure of effective communication is the response that you get. The same principles of communication apply to both virtual and in person conversations; however, there are just a few nuances when you are not face-to-face.
As a Business Coach, the number one thing I hear from my clients and other business owners is that they never have enough time. They all want to be better time managers, if I could just teach them how. Well there are two problems with that concept, the first of which is that “time management” doesn’t exist…it’s self-management. The second problem is that all the skills in the world won’t help you with time or self-management if we don’t fix something else first.
I am listening to many people who are struggling to focus right now. The challenge of working remotely, disrupted schedules, and the demands of caring and schooling children have been stressful for many. Add the regular occurrences we call “life,” (blocked toilets, flat tires, running out of milk) and you have the makings for a distracted mind. So how do you keep moving forward?
Are your customers lost? Are they having a difficult time finding you? I’m not talking about your storefront or office. Can they find you online? I was surprised to see a slimmed-down yellow pages directory by my mailbox. It went directly into the recycling bin. Why? Because, like most consumers, I will do an online search for a business or service. I want all of the information in one place: Products, Services, Hours, Locations, and Reviews.
As a business owner, you are frequently surrounded by chaos. Throw in a pandemic, civil unrest, and elections and the regular chaos can easily become a maelstrom. So how do you, as the person steering the ship, navigate the storms? Ignoring the situation is not an option. You may be tempted to abandon the ship, but that creates a whole new set of problems. So where do you start?
As a Business Coach, I am a HUGE proponent of the concept “Learn More to Earn More”, and in fact I wrote an article on this topic in Nov 2019. What I have been seeing, both in my clients and in other business owners I talk to, is that they have been reading/listening more than ever in an attempt to learn as much as they can to accelerate their results as quickly as possible. Yet, many of them are frustrated because they are not seeing results.
