change-architect-sign1Business success is measured by business growth, which is dependent on employee growth. The competitive marketplace among small businesses requires you to establish changes and benefits to attract strong employees. Successful people and businesses recognize the need for change early. In order to create change, small business owners need to plan and organize activities that help employees in understanding those changes and to teach them how to transform their work.

As a small business owner, how do you create change?

Consider delegating more in your business

Delegation is a secret weapon for creating enormous momentum and change in many types of businesses. Tapping the talents of others allows you to pivot to new markets and products without becoming bogged down with the day to day aspects of running a business.

Objectively analyze

Whether it is a process in your business, how you position your product or service or even how you sell, the first step is to want to change. Once you have decided that you want to change, step back and objectively analyze where you might be stuck or what process you will need to put in place to make any changes. Call in an outside, objective opinion if you are afraid that you can’t be objective. Last and most important, give yourself time for the changes to take effect and don’t try to change everything at once.

Address questions at monthly team meetings

Talk to your employees at monthly team meetings about how things are going.  Ask for suggestions that create positive change for the company. Look for positive changes to the work environment and ways to motivate employees.
