For the past few years, I have worked quite a bit with startup businesses and businesses in the early stages that are looking to grow. While small business owners all want to grow their business, they often get frustrated when they realize the challenges around innovation. How do you come up with an innovative idea? Mort importantly, how do you execute on that idea?
Mind Your Business
Culture plays a huge role in the success or failure of a business. As we ring in the New Year, now is the perfect time to take a good look at your business and make changes to ensure you are cultivating a culture that engages employees and ensures they are committed to the goals and growth of the business in 2016.
No matter the size, businesses develop cultures over time and those beliefs and behaviors become ingrained in the workplace. A company’s culture is influenced by many factors, including the style of leadership, employee mindset, motivational factors, and opportunities for advancement, recognition, and interaction. With all these dynamics at work, it is vital to make certain your employees are engaged and committed to the mission of the organization.
