A resolution to make New Year's resolutions

A resolution to make New Year's resolutions

Each New Year, many of us make New Year's resolutions to improve ourselves - exercise more, lose weight, spend more time with family and friends... the list goes on. But with 2016 around the corner, now is the time CEOs should make resolutions to help their businesses thrive.

Undoubtedly, you have made a few resolutions of your own over the years. Have you ever made any for your company? If not, now is the perfect time to get started. Making resolutions could just provide further acceleration for your business.

What type of resolutions should you consider?

  1. Rekindle your relationship with your clients

    Companies place a great deal of importance on meeting customer expectations. Almost all CEOs believe that providing a good customer experience is a top strategic priority and want to use customer experience as a competitive advantage. The challenge is that it is a big and crowded marketplace, filled with customers wanting different things at different times via different channels. There are common things that customers seek:
    • Their expectations met
    • Communication with them on their preferred channel
    • Timely responses
    • A personalised experience
    • Their problems solved without having to jump through hoops

  2. Focus on creating value

    Many managers worry too much about their balance sheets rather than trying to create something of value. Although it is important to keep a close eye on your financial situation, it is equally as important to focus on creating a good product or providing excellent service.

  3. Consider your business model

    CEOs cannot afford to rest on their laurels. What made money in the past may well become more costly to do with lower revenues in the future. Is your business model still relevant?

  4. Pursue innovation

    Follow trends in other industries. Study other categories and markets and seek innovations to bring to your sector that will position you ahead of the competition. Get a picture of where the world is going and how you plan to be part of this future. Much of your revenue two to three years out may well come from areas that didn't exist a few years ago.

  5. Have corporate culture as a priority

    Be the Chief Culture Officer. If you abandon this role, it will get filled by the noise of the day. Once diluted or damaged, restoring company culture is very, very difficult.

What New Year's resolutions will you be making for your enterprise?
