Are you ready for action?
As business owners it’s unlikely that we regularly (or ever) compare ourselves with the military. But maybe it’s time we did!
Armed forces are always ready for action, whatever and wherever that may be. They don’t know anything about the particular scenario to be faced, and yet they’re prepared. They expect the unexpected.
During peace time military forces evaluate the many different situations they may find themselves in. Senior ranks assess all current and potential risks for conflict. Plans are put in place to cater for all scenarios alongside the appropriate kit. Lower ranks then practice the plans and use kit until their reactions are second nature.
For businesses our primary goal is to survive...
...and then we need to thrive. By putting some military-style planning in place we can be ready for any mission that we may face, enabling us to move at pace and stay ahead.
Covid-19 has proven how vulnerable we are as humans and as businesses. Organisations that have been able to pivot with agility have been more resilient. We fully appreciate that there have been some sectors that have been particularly badly hit, but we’ve also seen certain businesses achieve dramatic results in the face of adversity.
Business owners are notoriously adaptable. Entrepreneurial spirit allows us to seek solutions in adverse conditions. But planning and preparation provides a stronger chance of survival, whatever is thrown at us.
So, as the year begins and we focus our attention on goals for 2022 and beyond, take some time to put military-style planning in place.
Here are our top 5 tips to prepare for ACTION!
