Application

Here is how you can prep for the business year ahead, according to Bookkeeping Confidential:

  • Get your team involved – business planning should be a team effort, as it works best that way. "Involve your key staff and your advisors, such as your accountant, your mentor (if you have one), and others who can contribute meaningfully to the planning, such as an IT expert if you envisage a major website overhaul," the Bookkeeping Confidential team says.
  • Review your business – assess your business' current state with the focus on three important questions: What's working well at the moment? What's not − what should be dropped or done less of? What has the most business potential for the future?
  • Decide on changes – there most likely will be some required changes to implement in the upcoming year, such as adapting your existing products and services, exploring new markets or distribution channels or even changing your business model entirely. Mark them on your 2019 calendar.
  • Figure out capacity – changes will likely require investment in new skills, new products or services or other resources. The experts say: "Get help from your accountant to complete a Return on Investment (ROI) analysis if you need new equipment or even new staff. You need to know how much extra business needs to be generated for a reasonable payback and also how the business can access the funds for the growth."
  • Get everyone on board – set some end-of-year goals and work backward to create the stepping stones that will take you there. But most importantly, make sure that everyone at your company is on board by communicating the strategy and schedule to them.
  • Plan and follow-up – "business goals won't be taken seriously unless you set regular dates to review progress – such as every 90 days," the experts say, "Once people know that you will be calling them to account at these progress meetings, they will be more motivated to keep your planning on track."

A major website overhaul can contribute to business growth and development in several ways. Firstly, it can improve the user experience, making it easier for customers to navigate and find what they're looking for. This can lead to increased customer satisfaction and loyalty. Secondly, a website overhaul can improve your site's SEO, making it more visible in search engine results and attracting more visitors. Thirdly, it can enable the integration of new technologies and features, such as e-commerce capabilities or a blog, which can drive more traffic and generate additional revenue. Lastly, a refreshed and modern website can enhance your brand's image and credibility, which can attract more customers and potential business partners.

Figuring out capacity when planning for business changes is crucial as it helps determine the resources needed to implement the changes. It involves assessing the current state of the business and identifying the skills, products, or services required for the changes. This process ensures that the business is prepared and equipped to handle the changes, thereby increasing the chances of successful implementation and minimizing potential disruptions.

Changes in products, services, or business models can be effectively implemented in a new year by following a few steps. First, involve your team in the planning process. This includes key staff and advisors who can contribute meaningfully to the planning. Second, review your business. Assess what's working well, what's not, and what has the most business potential for the future. Third, decide on the changes that need to be made and mark them on your calendar. This could involve adapting your existing products and services, exploring new markets or distribution channels, or even changing your business model entirely. Lastly, figure out the capacity. Changes will likely require investment in new skills, new products or services, or other resources.

Expert advice

The experts from "Forbes Coaches Council" offer actionable techniques for business leaders to add to their 2019 calendar plans and implement:

Be honest with yourself – Joynicole Martinez, The Alchemist Agency

"The hardest part of goal-setting is being realistic. It's easy to attempt to convert every dream into goals, but far from easy to convert those goals into achievements. Be realistic when planning for the new year. Consider roles that automatically take time and attention and be sure to incorporate recovery and relaxation. This will refine your 'open' time for work and make goals truly achievable," Martinez says.

Conduct your own SWOT analysis – Loren Margolis, Training & Leadership Success LLC

"In addition to setting business strategy for the new year, be sure to set your own leadership strategy by conducting a personal SWOT analysis. Ask trusted, objective colleagues: What are my top leadership strengths? What are my top weaknesses? What are my growth opportunities? What are the internal (mindset) and external (marketplace) threats to my success? Plan your goals based on the feedback," Margolis recommends.

Planning your goals based on feedback from trusted colleagues is important because it provides an objective perspective on your strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. This feedback can help you identify areas for improvement and growth, and can guide your goal-setting process to ensure that your goals are realistic, achievable, and aligned with your personal and professional development needs.

Internal and external threats can significantly impact your success as a leader. Internal threats often relate to personal weaknesses or mindset issues, such as lack of confidence, poor communication skills, or inability to adapt to change. These can hinder your ability to lead effectively, make sound decisions, and build strong relationships with your team. External threats, on the other hand, are factors outside your control, such as market competition, economic downturns, or changes in regulations. These can disrupt your business strategy and require you to adapt quickly to ensure the survival and growth of your organization.

One effective way to identify your top leadership strengths and weaknesses is by conducting a personal SWOT analysis. This involves asking yourself or getting feedback from trusted, objective colleagues on your top leadership strengths and weaknesses. Additionally, you should identify your growth opportunities and the internal (mindset) and external (marketplace) threats to your success. Based on this feedback, you can plan your goals.

Take time for self-reflection – Palena Neale, Ph.D

Dr. Neale says: "It is vital that leaders make time to reflect on the year gone past in relation to goals, actions, values, successes and, of course, their "best" failures of 2019! This gift of time to self-reflect allows leaders to take stock of what has and has not been accomplished and helps them pause and consolidate experiences in order to learn and focus on achieving more of what is desired in the year ahead."

Reinforce being strategically agile – Maresa Friedman, Executive Cat Herder

Per Friedman: "Setting the bar too high for your organization can leave your team feeling inadequate. Don't forget to let your team know what things are important – and what things can shift based on the need of the business."

Keep your eye on the three horizons – Gabriella Goddard, Brainsparker Leadership Academy

"The Three Horizons Model developed by Baghai, Coley and White in the Alchemy of Growth is a great way for leaders to start 2020 with clarity, drive and excitement. In Horizon 1, you're clear about your core business and how to expand it. In Horizon 2, you're focused on what aspects of the business you'll build for growth. And in Horizon 3, you're exploring new ideas that will shape your future," Goddard says.
