When you started your firm, you’ll have had many ideas about the direction in which you wanted it to go and what you wanted to achieve. You had dreams, ideas, goals and objectives.
In good times and bad, setting goals for your firm is important.
But the reality is that if you just make a list of objectives for your firm, there are often too many. The list becomes overwhelming, especially when you are busy managing your team, your clients, your suppliers, HMRC deadlines, changes in technology and ever-changing priorities, alongside all of the stresses and pressures and operational challenges of actually running your firm.
With all this to cope with everyday, it’s difficult to find time to really think about the strategic goals for your firm.
But what if you took a little time out and made a list of the top 3 (just 3) strategic priorities for your firm?
Priorities that will help your firm move forwards so that you don’t get left behind.
Sounds simple enough?
Then, what if you focused on the top priority and ignored all the others?
What if you focused on this single priority for the next 13 weeks, shared it with your team and tracked its activities and results?
Your firm will survive and thrive when you focus on one significant objective with your team for the next 13 weeks and measure the activities and key results needed to help you achieve it.
