We live in a world of innovative management techniques and the latest buzz words and approaches.
Some people get bored with all this management speak and this is completely understandable.
However, management techniques really have improved and sometimes it’s important to reflect upon our progress as a profession.
- As a firm owner, you should always be aware of your non-verbal communication. The messages that you may be unintentionally sending your team and indeed your clients and prospects.
- Always pay attention to your surrounding environment, it may be changing and you need to change with it
- Progress is inevitable and with the advent of the Digital Revolution, the rate of change is increasing dramatically.
- Where you are now is certainly not where you will be in 5, 10 or 20 years!
- Embrace change. It is your opportunity to get ahead of your competitors and steal a competitive advantage.
- You need to be highly intentional about the future success of your firm. This is achieved by both having a crystal clear image of how you want your firm to operate in the future and by having a step-by-step plan to make that vision a reality.
