Change the way you do business – it’s time for a change! Let’s face it, we don’t do business the same way anymore and the old ways aren’t going to work anymore either! If you want your company to continue to grow then you have to find new ways of doing things and be open to change in the workplace. Old workers are more likely to resist change than younger people who are also entering the workforce so how do you combat this? Here are three steps that can help you with making your company more open to new ideas and ways of doing things.
Life is full of risks, but some are greater than others. Some people decide not to take any risks at all because they fear losing everything they have, which can be a bigger risk than one that may or may not have had to face. You never know what will happen until you take that leap, so why not take the risk and see where it leads? And if your theory ends up being wrong? Figure out what was right about it and try again.
It’s not just about throwing in the towel and giving up. Change is your ability to adapt, grow, and flourish when things don’t go as planned. And there are plenty of ways to evolve your company while staying committed to your core mission. Take the leap and start fresh. Learn from what didn’t work in your old business model, then try new methods that work well in this digital age. You can find any number of ways to make your day-to-day more interesting and rewarding than before–you might just have to look a little harder.
Open Up To Other People
- There is no such thing as too many opinions. Ask your friends, family, or co-workers what they think of your idea. They may offer some valuable advice and provide encouragement to push forward.
- Don’t be afraid to talk with people who may not have anything in common with you or don’t share the same beliefs as you do; they could still teach you something new.
- Use those connections (with people who are very different from yourself) to get out of your comfort zone and expand your horizons.
- Connect with people on social media because it will give you an easier way to connect with more folks, who can help bring about more feedback on what may be difficult for family and friends to articulate in person
Reach Out To Groups You Don’t Usually Engage With
It’s never too late to rethink your outreach strategy, or to expand on your current tactics. Start by considering who you don’t speak with that often and see what opportunities exist in those realms. Some of these include people in the following groups: women, minorities, LGBTQ communities, people with disabilities, veterans, and the impoverished. I recommend starting by reaching out to one organization at a time; give them both more of your attention and resources than they normally receive from your company. The more that society is represented in corporate offices and at conferences like this one, the closer we will be able to come to matching diversity levels among decision makers and professionals.
Expand Your Network
Start by going through your LinkedIn contacts and find new people in your area. Reach out to them and ask if they want to meet up for coffee, or if they’re willing to take 15 minutes of your time over Skype. The process of getting to know someone will not only give them some insight into who you are, but it also gives you an opportunity to get some feedback on how well your marketing is going and what could be done better. If someone isn’t in your area, try sending them an email or having a phone conversation so that they can at least still hear what you have to say. It doesn’t hurt to start anywhere!
Take Time Off & Reflect Regularly
If you’re tired and getting burned out, take time off from your job and reflect on why this is happening. But not too much – take an hour or two and really think about what’s been bothering you lately. What are your current goals? Do they align with what you want to get done? Is there any work that isn’t getting done because someone else can do it better than you? Figure out what would make things better for your future self so that your well-being isn’t suffering today because of bad habits like never taking breaks or always working late. Once you know exactly where to go from here, come up with a plan to break them in so they’re easier to stick to in the long run.
