Stepping back from working in the business to make time to work on the business.
Whether you started your business a year ago or 20, running a small business is hard work. Each year, you think about creating a growth plan, but the day-to-day stress of worrying about payroll or hiring a replacement always gets in the way. And each year, you also imagine growth, you set goals to invest in marketing to attract new customers. You want to bring in new technologies but the daily grind of keeping the lights on consumes your energy and attention.
Too frequently, small business owners are so immersed in their business, they don’t take the necessary time—or develop the necessary skills—to step back, build, and execute a plan for sustainable growth. Many wrongly assume their business is too small to benefit from the disciplines of strategy, identity, scale, and leadership to see significant growth. In this workshop, you will learn the tools needed to plot a course of viable growth for your small business. You will learn the fundamentals of small business strategy; how to identify your key strengths that differentiate you, how to make sure your business is ready to scale, and how to make sure you’re making the right investments to sustain hard won growth.
Who is this for?
This workshop is ideal for all small business owners and their leadership team.
