I measure and analyze everything that my business does to monitor progress and identify ways to improve.
I keep on top of my revenue targets and take steps to rectify any under-performance.
I focus on my ultimate goals and develop strategies that will lead to their achievement and am motivated to work towards them against all odds.
I keep a constant eye on changes in the marketplace so that I can steer the business to make adaptations when required.
I find it easy to step out of the day-to-day and see the big picture.
I realize that sometimes a wrong decision may be better than no decision at all. Indecisiveness doesn’t inspire confidence.
When faced with a decision my biggest concern is not moving fast enough to make the decision that’s needed.
When faced with a decision I work through a strategy that’s proven in the past rather than figure out the approach as I go along.
If I have a decision to make, I get as much data as I can rather than jump right in.
I trust my gut feeling to guide me if I have a quick decision to make. It’s never let me down.
I don’t hesitate to invest in the cost of delegating tasks to those who can do the job better than I can.
When delegating I make sure I know the specific outcomes I want and always communicate them to the person I’ve chosen for the task.
When delegating I put in place support and monitoring measures, so I know the delegated task is progressing successfully without micro-managing the person.
I know that when I delegate, I still retain control and accountability for the task and its effect on the business.
I motivate those who work with me to contribute their best. These include strategic alliance partners, networking colleagues, suppliers and so on.
I promote a creative work environment so that those who work with me feel encouraged to contribute their ideas for innovation.
When I’m seeking a solution, I don’t try to force a result, but instead allow my brain time to come up with an answer.
I’m willing to take new ideas and take action to innovate by making improvements in my business.
I make sure that I keep my energy levels up by taking regular breaks during the day to stimulate my brain’s creative processes.
I take multiple vacations away from my business through out the year to focus on my self-care.
