Develop a Simple Business Plan by Answering Just Six Questions

Daniel Watson's curator insight, July 20, 4:07 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

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.

Great scoop here via @CelineSchill.  


I really agree with this statement:


Momentum is one of the hardest aspects of change: you can easily create disturbance, but like ripples on the water, it soon fades away. True change requires momentum over time, and that can only be generated from within the community, not input from outside.


It's socially created and socially moderated, so almost by definition, it requires engagement from the community.

Three Ways Leaders Can Listen with More Empathy

Three Ways Leaders Can Listen with More Empathy | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Study after study has shown that listening is critical to leadership effectiveness. So, why are so few leaders good at it?
 

Too often, leaders seek to take command,
direct conversations, talk too much, or worry
about what they will say next in defense
or rebuttal.  

 

The ability and willingness to listen with empathy is often what sets a leader apart.  Hearing words is not adequate; the leader truly needs to work at understanding the position and perspective of the others involved in the conversation. 

 

In a recent interview, Paul Bennett, Chief Creative Officer at IDEO, advises leaders to listen more and ask the right question.  Bennett shared that “for most of my twenties I assumed that the world was more interested in me than I was in it, so I spent most of my time talking, usually in a quite uninformed way, about whatever I thought, rushing to be clever, thinking about what I was going to say to someone rather than listening to what they were saying to me.”

A nice article that discusses three behaviors in empathic listening.  Each of these are areas that we should focus on to improve our connection through communications. 

Recognize verbal and non-verbal cues.

Process what you hear/see

Respond thoughtfully

Be sure to link to the article for more in depth information.  Well worth the time to read.   

donhornsby's curator insight, July 16, 6:12 PM

(From the article): Overall, it is important for leaders to recognize the multidimensionality of empathetic listening and engage in all forms of behaviors.  Among its benefits, empathic listening builds trust and respect, enables people to reveal their emotions–including tensions, facilitates openness of information sharing, and creates an environment that encourages collaborative problem-solving.

Deborah Orlowski, Ph.D.'s curator insight, July 17, 12:11 PM

Coleman suggests 3 simple ways anyone can be a more effective listener. They seem self-evident but I wonder how often we actually do them? Why not try them for yourself.  If you think you're already practicing them, check yourself to make sure you really are, not just thinking you are!

How Do You Build Trust In A Trust-Deficient World?

How Do You Build Trust In A Trust-Deficient World? | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Trust is the operating system of every organization and every relationship.

Think about that metaphor.

If the operating system on your computer is flaky, nothing seems to work right. Even if you have the best software programs, an unreliable operating system will cause you constant grief.

The same goes for the trust levels in organizations and relationships. Where trust is fragile, people are always looking over their shoulders. They’re reluctant to share information, collaborate, or accept accountability for results. In low-trust environments, everything seems to slow down. Nobody seems willing to do much of anything without a lot of hoop-jumping and multiple approvals.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 16, 9:35 PM

Trust is not an operating system. It is not a commodity. It cannot be manufactured. It is earned in the daily relationships we have with other people. It is situational and contextual. When I consider the ten key elements of servant-leadership, they are the hard work used in entering relationships and building trust in the daily give and take.

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, July 16, 11:58 PM


I really appreciate the following trust benefits listed in the article:


  1. Psychological well-being
  2. Meaningful friendships and business relationships
  3. Faster, more efficient decision making
  4. Greater personal effectiveness in groups
  5. Greater support for your decisions
  6. Career promotions
  7. Win/win opportunities
  8. Role modeling trustworthy behavior
  9. More time for creativity and relaxation
  10. More money in your pocket (people want to do business with those they trust)

3 Greatest Myths about Owning a #Business

3 Greatest Myths about Owning a #Business | New Leadership | Scoop.it

When I was younger I wanted my own business, but I didn’t know how to begin. Should I buy a franchise, join a multi-level marketing company, or start my own business?

 

I went to seminars, presentations, and sales pitches on selling everything from milk additives to fuel additives, from soap to jewellery.

 

A lot of the presentations were very high-pressured. They were designed to get you to buy, sign, and commit. It was all about selling the dream of a life of leisure; you could live like a king and enjoy life without hard work. You could be different from the average Joe—no longer serving the man but living the dream.

 

Having started and run three successful businesses myself and spoken to hundreds of small business owners I can look back over 35 years and say, “Yep, that was definitely a bunch of crap!”

 

These are the three great myths:

this is truthful reality, nothing is easy in life, only if you work for it! Business are still necessary though in life and if you are able to manage it, it should be an alright way of income, same with any other job!

Great post here by  [url=/u/522681 x-already-notified=1]Kate Nasser, The People Skills Coach™[/url].  


As a communication professional, I could not agree more with the following:


5. When you use it as a reason not to communicate. After a mishap have you ever said, "Didn't they know that already? It's just common sense. It's logical."


Not only does common sense not actually exist, logic has little value if not communicated.


Great leaders communicate with their teams. They don't label their assumptions as logic that everyone should know.

John Michel's curator insight, July 15, 7:59 AM

In the early stages of creativity, logic limits the panorama and possibilities. Logic is a filter. If you filter too soon, novel ideas will not make it onto the canvas. Great leaders don't fear the chaos of creativity. They filter later.

donhornsby's curator insight, July 17, 9:11 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?

Stakeholder Mapping for Collaboration

Stakeholder Mapping for Collaboration | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Collaboration is an important factor for successful innovation and change. Indeed, collaboration is an imperative for most organizations today, including any organization undergoing change. Innovation requires collaboration between individuals, as well as systemic forms of collaboration that span silos, networks and surprising connections. And yet collaboration cannot be mandated. Collaboration just doesn’t work like that.

Most stakeholder «management» tools and techniques are based on measuring (whatever it means) Power and Influence. This is mostly done without open discussion with the stakeholders and highly manipulative in its intent. It does not either consider meta game and alliance among unlikely collaborators. The model you found, Kenneth is thus a pace towards a better way, something that «engage» stakeholders instead of «managing/trying to manipulate» them. Thanks a lot :)
