2015 is here and so are New Year’s resolutions. There are the typical lose weight, save money and volunteer more, but what about for your business? Have you set any initiatives for your business for the new year? I was scrolling through the Zweig Group’s blog and came across “Keys to success in 2015”. Setting goals for your firm is a great way to have a successful year for your firm. In the “Keys to success in 2015”, some of the “keys” I will be mentioning are some I think are important for any business.
Communication.Not having any can lead to “misunderstandings”. Having good communication with everyone involved in your business can eliminate problems and lead to a thriving business.
Having Purpose.Employees should have the purpose to create quality work they are proud of. Having a purpose can lead to an overall positive effect on individual motivation.
Working Together.In the A/E field, working together is a big part to success. By not having a “solo performer” and having “team players” projects can get done more efficiently and your business can run more smoothly. Of course there are more factors to running a prosperous business, but these three really jumped out at me. Running any type of business is not just about making money, its important but being proud of your work as well as helping others is really what matters at the end of the day. With running a successful business, working together, communication, and having purpose are important factors; however having a “well oil machine” requires everyone in the office to be organized. Meaning, keeping track of money, time, and schedules is how your firm will run smoothly, and having software to make keeping track of necessary things is always a must. With Praesto AE, keeping track of when things are do, who is doing them,how much is spent, and have we been profitable is easy.
