How to finish 2021 strong in your business. There are only a few days left of 2021, and there is no doubt that the end of the year is critical for the business world. Salespeople are rushing to meet quotas, leftover budgets are spent in a hurry, and clients are more active than at any other time of the year.
Having everything together helps you be more present during the holiday season and prevents a “holiday-season hangover” when you come back to the office. Here are some tips to help you finish well this year:
Create a to-do list
Being focused on your work is what makes the real difference in time and results. We all have only 24 hours in our day, and we can spend that time wisely if we focus. Creating a to-do list helps you understand the number of things you have pending and organize them in your head. Create a master list for the season that includes major KPIs and company goals. Then, stick to your list and avoid time-sucking activities.
Empower your employees
Bureaucracy can steal a lot of time. Empowering your leaders to make decisions effectively is essential when you are running a company, particularly in this season when things get hectic. Make sure you keep open communication with your employees. They must understand what to do and how to do it to avoid micromanaging your company. Empowerment helps you achieve your company goals, but it also helps employees feel more independent and satisfied with their job.
Thank your team
Send a “thank you” card to your team, clients, and collaborators.
Business is tough when it is done alone, so take the time to thank the people who have supported your project: your team, your collaborators, your clients, your leaders, and everyone else.
You can express gratitude in very different ways.
Here are some ideas:
- A thank you email
- A gift basket
- A phone call
- A gift card or a coupon code
Decide what’s next
Take the time to decide what you would like to keep or change in 2022, your following goals, and why and how you will achieve them. Then, make sure your business is in the best shape to start the year. Finally, contact your accountant, your lawyer, and all the professionals you need.
