Build & Maintain Business Momentum
Apr 30, 2013
Momentum isn’t just the applicable “mass x velocity” understanding. Ongoing success can be just a pendulum swing away when applying the principles of building momentum right into the blocks of your business. It doesn’t have to take much to get the momentum going, and once you have it – successes become easy wins.
Productivity x Motivation: The New “Mass x Velocity”
Don’t be tricked by “motion” in your business. We’ve all heard how “busy” employees can be, however, when it comes to creating an environment with successful win after successful win, it comes down to measuring results, not work. And those successes will only keep happening when you keep things moving forward. This means creating true, measurable results. So how can you incorporate business tactics to ensure you set up your business momentum?
Set clear goals and stick to them: Create a mission statement that holds individuals accountable for their work productivity. You can start with small, incremental changes that match up to a larger, more wide-scale plan.
- Communicate effectively: Now that you’ve set milestones, communicate the expected results. These should be clear and precise with no “wiggle room” or openness to interpretation. As many of us understand, there is always more to do than can possibly get done in one working day. Make sure that expectations are prioritized in an order that keeps employees in a forward-acting state (not reacting to interruptions).
- Celebrate the wins: Keeping momentum moving also means taking time to show appreciation to the efforts and wins of the team. Recognition of key milestones hit helps reinforce positivity and the mentality to keep on pushing.
