You’ve heard it all before – a few steps to do this and five ways to do that – all designed to help you to succeed in one way or another. However, the point is that when a program has been devised by one of the world’s premier business coaching franchises you tend to put your head up and take notice. The ActionCOACH Franchise says that they have the answer in their 6 Steps To A Better Business program and this is no idle boast. They have been able to assist businesses to improve profits by a whopping 61%! Is it for me? Before you even embark on such a program, perhaps you need to ask yourself a few pertinent questions relating to your business, such as:
- Does my business make me as much money as I think it should – or given some changes – it could?
- Do I need to have more time – or wish I did?
- Do I have the right people working for me?
The common reasons businesses fail There are essentially three things that all small businesses need to attain and retain to succeed – or even survive. These are:
- Good management of time and money. Are you finding that you are spending more time working in your business instead of ‘on it? Apart from managing your time efficiently, you need to ensure you manage your money effectively. Cash flow issues have killed many small businesses.
- Having great people and retaining them. Are you able to successfully recruit, train, motivate and retain the right people for your business?
- Marketing should always be yielding great results and never feel like it’s just a useless practice. It should be a good investment that results in ROI for your business.
If you would like to improve in the above-mentioned areas in your business – the ActionCOACH 6 Steps program is for you! The entire course is comprehensive and goes into great detail, but in essence, the 6 Steps are simple steps that any businessman or businesswoman can master with a little help. Below are brief descriptions of each step:
Step 1 – Mastery This is essentially about mastering the basics of business and eliminating chaos in our lives and our businesses. No positive path can be set with boulders in our path, and understanding why they are there in the first place. The key elements to mastering and fully understanding our business are destination mastery; money mastery; delivery mastery; and time mastery.
Step 2 – Niche Establishing and leveraging what is unique about your business. Stability is focussed on as well as having a predictable cash flow.
Step 3 – Leverage Leveraging is about examining the systems that you use, such as improving cash flow, time management, and efficiency.
Step 4 – Team All about creating and building the right teams, maximising their time, and creating a structure for growth. A happy team is filled with productive people!
Step 5 – Synergy Creating synergy in all areas of the business. Good management and creating a well-oiled machine are what make businesses run smoothly, thereby yielding better results.
Step 6 – Results Personal growth, building new and more businesses, selling at a great profit, or retiring with a passive income. All these are good results of all your hard work.
