Start a Business Resolution List For the New Year
You may have a few ideas for personal New Year’s resolutions, but have you started thinking about a business resolution list?
A good place to start in making your list is to review your company’s goals. Most of those goals depend on your workforce being up to the task. Do the people you manage have the talent and leadership you need to get your team to the next level? Connect the dots. If you are missing the talent and leadership you need, maybe the right business resolution can start you on a better path.
Business Resolution #1 – Develop employees
Do you think you can’t encourage your employees’ development if they are in an entry or lower level position? No matter what their current job is, helping them expand their skills will help the company succeed. If you want to promote from within to keep knowledgeable talent in-house and encourage loyalty, you will need to have foresight and consistent commitment to turn that into a workable system.
#2 Be a better leader
Become aware of your own strengths and weaknesses as a leader is a top business resolution. Find out how you come across to others and what you can do to improve your communication to get better results. Be an example of how you would want your employees to manage.
#3 Share information
Share the information your employees need to know so they can see more of the big picture that allow them to be strategic with you. Their understanding of how what they do affects the whole company can be very motivating for them and profitable for the company.
#4 Be a better delegator
Another business resolution to consider is delegating important projects to employees that you think have the ability to rise to the task so they have the opportunity to learn something new. Don’t keep your employees stuck in routine repetitious work. Give them the opportunity to shine or they will always have one eye on the job boards.
#5 Assign teams strategically
Take the time to evaluate employees so that they can be assigned to teams that have members that complement each other’s skills and talents.
#6 Listen more
Listen to employees’ ideas. They are often experts in their own area and have the ability to challenge the “we have always done it this way” attitude and can suggest some innovative solutions.
#7 Let go a little
Any business resolution list you have should include developing your employees to the point where you are no longer needed to direct every activity. Move on to more strategic thinking and planning for the company instead of worrying about every day-to-day detail.
#8 – Do background screening on your hires as part of your business resolution list
