Wise Up Wednesday: Small Changes Could Transform Your Business!
This week, Wise Up Wednesday is about “change” and how changes could transform your business!
in particular it’s about making small changes that could make a big difference to your business.
And in these difficult times small changes might actually save your business from the unthinkable!
You see, I know from personal and professional experience that even small changes can achieve amazing results. Whereas, doing nothing, or waiting to see what happens, can have disastrous consequences.
** Want To Grow Your Business And Your Profits? **
How serious are you about growing your business, your profits and your services?
Most Specialist Subcontractors say they are trying to do just that, but somehow it just isn’t happening for them.
Most Subcontractors are great at delivering products/service but as they grow and develop the business they neglect the need for new skills, and processes creating unseen inefficiencies and ‘grow themselves profit and cash poor’.
** Why? **
According to something I read recently, we all have four devils within us:
- IGNORANCE and
One of these four prevents us from changing, and therefore owners, directors and managers can become bottlenecks within their own company.
** An Example… **
Just the other week I spoke to a Subcontractor who is being delayed and disrupted on yet another job. This has happened before and cost them dearly!
Unfortunately he hasn’t made any changes or put in any systems or processes to stop this happening, so that he doesn’t make the same mistake for the 10th time.
Why? Because he would have had to do something differently and one of his devils; FEAR of change had stopped him CHANGING.
Another example; recently the owner of a business told me he never checked the contract and merely agreed to whatever was put in front of him.
Absolute madness, the contract he had agreed to was stuffed full of onerous terms and the Contractor was using these to avoid paying what was owed!
Yet another one of the devils at work. This time EGO, preventing him saying; “I don’t understand this contract and I’m going to get help”.
** So what’s happening? **
Both these Subcontractors have a desire for success, but have not committed to CHANGE.
As a business owner, director or manager it is your responsibility to develop yourself and your people. Owners, directors and managers who don’t commit to continuous development burn profits and don’t even realise this until it’s too late.
** So what is commitment? **
Commitment is taking responsibility for where you are right now, reviewing the good, the bad and the ugly and doing something about it.
Commitment is asking yourself “what don’t I know”, what do I need to learn?” Recognise the devils within you and ask others for help.
** Changes Could Transform Your Business! The benefits of committing **
