Yes, it sounds harsh, but it is a simple truth. In life we NEED a vision for everything; family, career, you name it. If you don’t have a vision or a road map that illustrates how you plan to get to where you want to be in life, you will keep going around in circles. If your business does not have a clear vision or mission, do not worry! The Chamber can help!
In Business You Are Never Alone
My favorite saying for 2015 which you will hear me repeat over and over and over (until it sticks) is that “you are never alone in business”. The Chamber is committed to helping your business “thrive” by providing you with as much resources and education so that you can get your business to the next level; all you have to do is ASK for the help you NEED. “Ask and you shall receive”
I understand all of our businesses are on different journeys and on different levels. But, overall, I am confident the Chamber can come in and help you no matter what situation you may be in because of the vast group of knowledgeable professionals we surround ourselves with.
Plan for Success Business Workshops
Our first workshop in the 2015 Plan for Success Series will be dedicated to understanding how the right VISION and MISSION for your business are critical for the health and well being of your business. This workshop will be facilitated by the talented Scott McFarland whose expertise in organizational development as well as leadership and management training will provide workshop attendees with sound and professional advice they can take back to their office to improve their business.
What are You Waiting For?
Even if your business has developed a vision and mission, you won’t want to miss the opportunity to learn how to best articulate the vision and mission in a way your employees will “own” it and your customers will “believe” in it . Make sure you register for our Vision/Strategic Planning workshop on February 24th.
Why Do You Do What You Do?
I was recently introduced to the “TED” videos which offer some great insight and perspective on all sorts of topics for business and life in general. I want to recommend for you to watch the following video by Simon Sinek so you can understand what is the importance of a VISION for your business and WHY it is important.
Do me a favor, take a much needed break for 20 minutes and watch the following video; I promise it wil be worth your time!
I hope to see you at the Chamber’s upcoming Plan for Success Business Workshop on February 24th!
