What do Fisherman do when they can’t fish?
Every business owner can relate to going through a slow growth period. The best thing to do is to plan for these events and stay proactive during these times. When fisherman can’t fish, they repair their nets!
What is one area of your business that you can work on when things are slower than normal.
Way to often are business owners and managers focused on the task that is ahead of them for the day, and they fail to plan for the slow times.
Company meetings are excellent opportunities to make ongoing repairs to your “nets” schedule these events out for the year on your calendar. By scheduling these out ahead of time everyone knows about the meetings way in advance.
Most companies understand the importance of a company meeting and how it can be used to inject excitement back into their business, and how it can get the team back on track for new sales goals.
However to many companies fail to plan these company meetings. If you already have your company meetings scheduled out for the next 12 months congratulations to you, but do you have a reminder to publish a meeting agenda 1 week in advanced also.
Companies that can see the vision of what is ahead can plan to be more actively involved in their company meetings!
Imagine showing up for a company meeting with no idea of what is going on, and being hit with new sales goals, and asked on the spot how you plan to achieve those goals. Now compare that to a team that has been handed the company agenda a week in advanced and it says at the company meeting we will be looking for bright ideas on how we can reach our sales goals.
The company that communicates early and often will outperform the other company every single time.
