|Chick-fil-a Leadercast: Simply Lead|
I was privileged to attend the Chick-Fil-A Leadercast on Friday, May 10th broadcast from Atlanta to Colorado.
The speakers were impressive but I was coming down with a flu bug and not exactly looking forward listening to someone talk all day long. I was glad I attended, however, and I learned some important and vital truths about business and leadership.
I want to start with Andy Stanley who said: "Wherever there is growth there is complexity. Complexity is the enemy of CLARITY"
When in any business situation you must ask yourself:
1) What are we doing?
2) Why are we doing it?
3) Where do I fit in?
If you don't know EXACTLY what you are doing you will certainly have a difficult time reaching your goals Determine what you are doing, this is your mission statement.
When it comes to "why?" ask yourself: "What would happen if I didn't do this thing that I am doing?" Where would your world, your community, your network or your family be if you never started XYZ Business? That is your "WHY"
Knowing where you fit in tends to be more applicable in a larger company, perhaps one that you don't own yourself...but it can be a handy question if you work with a spouse, partner, friend, etc in your home business. In this case you can ask yourself: "What is my unique contribution?"
In our business, my husband is the salesman and I am the back office. We do help with all aspects of our network marketing businesses but our unique contributions and core responsibilities are different and work well together.
- Simplify the situation.
- Cloister yourself somewhere private and quiet.
- Re-center yourself, your mind, your goals, your mission.
