Daniel Watson's curator insight, July 20, 1:07 AM


Far too many small business owners, operate their businesses without ever preparing a business plan, and this missing link is often the chief reason they do not achieve their desired levels of success.


A business plan is not all that difficult to create, yet many business owners avoid the task, often because they are aware that a well prepared plan can expose gaps of many kinds that cannot always be ignored.


This excellent article, suggests that a business plan clearly identifies how much work lies ahead for a business to succeed in its chosen endeavour and provides a prioritised map of the path to follow, and it offers a six question approach that will provide all the answers needed to help a business owner to prepare a simple business plan.

Bring Together Brains and Beliefs for Balanced Leadership | New Leadership | Scoop.it

The time is ripe for a new kind of leadership that respects brains and beliefs of all humans. A lifetime of studying brains, valuing differences where I work globally, and leading from a center of belief in God, convinces me that brains and beliefs offer lynchpins for a balanced leadership that includes all.

The one thing that trumps drive when it comes to business success | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Business is like sport: the most successful players love the game. Successful business leaders, if they love what they do, will always go the extra mile to succeed, they will also stand up again after being knocked over and they will look at obstacles and failures as, at worst, a small blip, and at best an opportunity to learn.

3 Things you Forgot About Motivating People | New Leadership | Scoop.it

When we think about motivation we tend to imagine people bounding around, smiling and excited to make things happen. That's not a bad thing, but it's not much of a recipe for long-term productivity in a work place.

donhornsby's curator insight, July 17, 6:11 PM

(From the article): A common misconception around flexible working is that it primarily benefits the employee. This isn’t the case if you set clear and measurable business goals and outline clearly what is expected of an individual when working flexibly. For example, could you get them to deliver a special project that they will work on from home to achieve better focus?


Can working flexibly or from home be used to channel their creativity which might be impaired by much of the day-to-day activity they are immersed in when in the office?
