It was great to spend the day away from the office working on the business and getting the opinion of someone outside of the business. I think everyone should do this from time to time.
During the day we discussed the development of ‘business skills’. The truth is that 99% of business owners have weaknesses in their business skills (including myself) and we need to identify and improve these skills.
These skills could include:
- Financial clarity
- Marketing (or as we call it – lead generation)
- Sales (or as we call it – lead conversion)
- Strategic planning
- People management
- Health and safety
Or any number of other skills that you need to own and to manage a successful business.
The key is that as business owners we need to develop those skills, and if we don’t the lack of skill in any one of those areas can ‘bite us in the bum’ just at the wrong time and end our business.Social tagging: business advice > business coaching services > Business Coaching UK > business development agency > business development consultants > business development strategy
