October is one of my favorite months. Sure, autumn brings a new volleyball season, but it also offers a natural chance to reflect, to set your sights on the new year to come. What things will we do the same? What things will we do differently? What can we do more of? As you round out another year of hard work, these questions are ripe for asking.
Another way to mark this season of transition is to consider strategy. I’m a big believer in competing to win. To do this, today’s businesses must approach our ever-changing market with strategies in place. However, a strategy requires much more than a loose game plan. Effective strategies are formulated with clarity and consideration. They account for challenges and opportunities; they define motivations and professional principles. What’s more, a quality strategy aims toward the future and sets goals along the way, all culminating in a masterplan.
Does this sound overwhelming?
It doesn’t have to be. Though it requires hard work, making a meaningful, lasting change is entirely within your power. At Leadership Delta, we’re in your corner. From team-building and leadership development, to organizational streamlining and training on specific subjects, we equip today’s businesses with the tools to make tomorrow happen. If you want to Be the Delta, it’s all about reaching an untapped level of high performance—and crafting a strategy to get you there.
Of course, there is plenty more work to be done. Though it takes imagination, self-reflection, and critical reasoning to envision a strategy for your business, you can’t stop there. 40% of all new businesses fail by the end of their first year, only 12% have survived by year five, and only a mere 2-3% make it a decade. If you want to be around for the long haul, it’ll take commitment and accountability. That’s where we come in.
In the meantime, stay tuned in the coming months as we explore more philosophies, tips, and insights on maximizing your leadership with Leadership Delta.
