With Quarter 4 of 2014 sneaking up on us, 2015 is just around the corner! I hope you hit all your goals for Q1 and Q2 and on your way to nailing your Rocks and achieving your key initiatives for 2014.
And – if you want to get a head start on 2015 or if 2014 has just NOT been your year, (or both), the upcoming, re-vamped Rockefeller Habits Four Decisions Executive Workshop on Thursday, November 13th is for you. The workshop is an amazing bargain for those of you ready to get serious about creating a sustainable business.
Here are the TOP 10 REASONS why you and your team should attend!
#10: Get your time back
You’ll learn how to apply the Rockefeller Habits Four Decisions principles to get your time back – from being mired in the day-to-day and firefighting to focusing on the priorities that will help you drive your business and growth.
#9: Determine your competitive differentiators
Come learn the Three Questions that you should ask your customers, their competitors’ customers and even people and businesses not using your services at all that will drive sustained profitability.
#8: Learn the “must-do’s” to accelerate alignment
Find out how to broadcast your weekly progress against your Quarterly Rocks or Annual Plan to your Company – and get people aligned and on the same page. Fun Fact: Greg Brenneman led the turnaround of Continental Airlines by letting every employee know every week by voice mail exactly where the company stood versus their plan – a great way to keep up the lines of communication and keep people engaged.
#7:Learn Solid Strategies to say “NO” more than “YES”
The foundation for the Rockefeller Habits approach to doing business – and sustained profitability. A really solid and well-thought out business strategy should mean that you’re saying NO more than you’re saying YES…to new opportunities, new people AND potential new clients. (Imagine what that might mean for your business success…)
#6- Stay Sharp – and 1 Step Ahead of the Competition
Learn the secrets of great business “thought leaders” like Mark Aesch who eradicated multi-million dollar deficits at the Rochester Genesee Regional Transportation Authority (RGRTA) and turned them into multi-million dollar surpluses. (See “Driving Excellence” for more on his story.)
#5- Manage and Grow Your Cash
Cash is King and the Oxygen that supports your Business. In this workshop, you will learn simple but effective business tools to help you get a handle on such critical items as CASH and profitability.
#4 –Stop Re-Inventing the Wheel and learn Proven Business Methodologies
Tools like the One Page Plan™ and the Inside Advantage from Bob Bloom who helped SouthWest, BMW and Juicy Juice achieve greatness.
#2 -Develop Your Team – as well as Yourself
One of the toughest challenges in a mid-market business is growing and developing your Leadership team and coming up with the next great idea that will propel your business. Use November 13th as a “learning” day as well as a “planning” day and jumpstart 2015!
The One Thing – of Course!
When everything is a priority, you have no priorities at all! Verne Harnish’s “eternal” phrase – the need to focus and prioritize no matter what you’re attempting to do. Pick One to Three Strategic Priorities…and stick to them! Use this day to work on those key priorities that will get you closer to where you want to be in business and in life.
