How Can I Become a Better Business Owner?
While the people on your sales staff are of extreme importance when it comes to increasing your sales, don't underestimate your own ability to boost revenues.
As the CEO or President of your company, your role is to lead by example. You may be very hands-on or prefer to let your employees handle the day-to-day work. Whatever your leadership style, there is always room for improvement.
- Keep Tabs. Even if you prefer to stay a distance away from operations, you should always know what's going on with your company. Arrange to be involved in all levels of staff meetings, from executive management on down to sales and marketing department meetings. This way, you are an active participant in what goes on at your company, which can inspire others to do their best.
- Delegate. If, on the other hand, you love being a part of every aspect of your business, step back a bit and let others handle the work. You can love your business and still delegate the work to the capable employees you hired to do the job. You should spend your time helping the company grow through your excellent leadership.
- Manage Yourself. Like most entrepreneurs, you are probably very passionate about your business, and often put in much more than 40 hours a week. Let go. Your business will run itself without you (assuming you are not the only employee!). Take time away from your business to maintain a good work/life balance.
