Session 21: Making Data-Based Decisions

You’re probably not making decisions as well as you could (or should) be in your organization. Chances are high that you’re not tracking metrics and letting the data drive your decisions.

Think corporations like Amazon make decisions without data?

Session 20: How to Start Tracking Metrics

Metrics? Data? That seems like a lot of effort for a small business. Don’t big corporations do that? I just want to run my business and keep my family happy. Do I really need to track metrics? Yes.

Session 19: Why Track Metrics

There are certain things in your business that are happening, and you don’t know about it. And you know what? You’re doing it too…

Session 18: Increasing Team Buy-In

Most people are change adverse. That includes your team too! Whenever there is a change within your organization, it can be difficult to get your team to buy into the changes.

Probably not. But hey, it’s not your fault, because most businesses don’t.

Session 17: Where to Use Strategic Alignment

Think you’re too small to use strategic alignment in your business? Wrong. Thing you’re too big? Wrong again.

Session 16: Scalability System Philosophy

Do you have a system to scale your business? Do you have a proven force driving revenue? Do you have a structured, standardized way of operating your business without you?

Probably not. But hey, it’s not your fault, because most businesses don’t.

Session 15: Messaging Clarity

Do your clients know who and what you are? If you are a graphics designer that also builds websites and codes mobile apps, which is your specialty?

Are all (or any) of those advancing your mission? I could probably guess.

It all comes down to focus.

Session 14: Do I Need a Strategic Plan

Do I need a strategic plan for completing a strategic alignment process? I’m not sure what all these terms are, but strategic sure sounds important, right?

Strategic is important.

Session 13: What is a Strategic Plan

Strategic Plan? Strategic Alignment? Are these the same, or at least similar?

Sort of.

Session 12: Arrow vs. Sword

Have you ever seen a movie with medieval knights fighting? There’s a key lesson we can learn about our businesses from these scenes.

It all comes down to focus.
