Strategy Tips From A Business Coach

Having a clear and compelling vision and strategy for your company is essential—but it’s not enough. Knowing where you want to go is great, but figuring out the best way to get there is critical. You may even be aware that some things need to change in your business if you’re going to scale up and take your company to new heights. But what’s your plan for getting there? What steps will you take to actually scale your company?

Taking Strategic Steps

Dramatic, sustainable business growth doesn’t just happen. It requires action. But it’s not enough to just “take steps forward.” You need to be taking strategic steps. You may have heard the old adage: “A vision is a dream with a plan.” But how do you come up with a plan that’s in line with your vision—and helps you take the strategic steps necessary to accomplish your goals?

BHAG StrategyOne of My Favorite Business Coaching Tools

Strategic planning can get a little complicated and involved. That’s not always a bad thing. However, as I’ve worked with clients over the years I’ve also looked for things that can help simplify the process. One of my favorite tools is what’s called a One Page Strategic Plan (OPSP).

This OPSP builds your strategic plan based on your core values, your purpose, and your brand promises. That means that the strategic steps you take are aligned with the things you value and reflect the character of your company. But the plan also keeps your Big Hairy Audacious Goal (BHAG) front and center. I’ve used this simple, but powerful tool with thousands of clients to help them create meaningful and effective strategies for growing their businesses. I’d like to share it with you as well. It’s —free of charge. Give us a call at 719-487-1899 and let us know that you’d like a complimentary copy of the One Page Strategic Plan. We’ll ask you a few short, simple questions about your business (to see if we might be a good fit for helping you further) and then we’ll send you your copy of the OPSP.
