5 Ways to Manage Success
Project Management Services
Something that every business owner has been guilty of at some time or another is poor time management. Especially in a company’s infancy, it can be tempting to over commit yourself. You want to please everyone, show your commitment and above all achieve success. However, in doing so your actions could be counter-productive to the cause. Over committing either yourself or your employees will have negative results. Listen to your employees, understand their role and the time it takes. Be honest with your clients, don’t put yourself in an uphill battle to complete on a project. Above all never hesitate to enlist help from an employer’s agent when you need it.
Your employees are the backbone of your business. If you look after your employees, they will look after your business. The most common detriment to success is failing to listen to others. It is nothing short of commendable you have succeeded in business, but could you do this without your employees? Respecting their role in the well-oiled engine that is your company will go a long way. Especially when it comes to making detrimental decisions within the company. In addition to the good practice as an employer, you have legal responsibilities and a duty of care. Being unsure of your obligations can become a costly mistake.

Consistent cash flow and keeping a healthy balance sheet is vital to maintaining success. Although in business some financial risks are unavoidable, such risks should always be calculated. Don’t be afraid to seek advice when it comes to the financial forecast of your project. Your clients would be more impressed by an accurate forecast than a low estimate. As Employers agents and project management company we can alleviate the burden of financial planning and management.
The ultimate key to maintaining success is to treat your word as a binding contract. Never promise your time if you are unable to commit it. Don’t agree to deadlines you do not feel comfortable with. Trust and respect in business are the seeds to grow solid relationships. If you respect your clients time and they trust your word, your success will continue to grow.
We all tend to forget that we work to live, not the other way around. Taking time for yourself away from the business is just as important. Success means nothing if it leaves you feeling burnt out and run down. Making time for activities such as holidays, sports or family and friends serves as a reminder to why we work. Time to yourself lets you enjoy the fruits of your labour, recharge your energy and motivates your work ethic. Working with an employer’s agent such as John Burke Associates on your project will allow you to achieve a healthier work, life balance.
