Too many businesses continue staying with their same old ways of doing business and getting the same old results. With this in mind, you may not realize that you actually lose market share of clients who can use your products and services. The big difference is that you need to shift gears slightly into the realm of being more creative.
Business stagnation left unchecked leads to lower employee productivity, decreased consumer interest and smaller profit margins. Maybe it’s time you start to innovate your business for optimal effectiveness.
Listen to All Ideas
Allow your employees to give feedback and ideas. Remember, your employees are the people who create and produce the ideas they work with. Take time to really listen to all ideas. Let your employees “brainstorm” ideas and how to get things done themselves after you give them the task to complete.
Start Asking Better Questions
If you are fresh out of ideas start asking your employees and customer’s questions. Ask questions that are thought-provoking in order to get new ideas to solve the problems, challenges and difficulties you have in front of you. Ask and think about “What if…?” These types of questions need you to go beyond the basics to the possibilities.
Break Out of Your Fixed Mindset
You company needs to shift from working on a traditional basis to an unconventional basis. This means you and your employees need to be growth oriented and be open to different thoughts and ideas and learn from mistakes and failures. Allow these things to take place as you experiment with trial and error in combining ideas that solve what’s in front of you. Go beyond the basics. Start viewing things from a different perspective than what you have been used to seeing.
Pull People Out of their Comfort Zone to Generate Better Ideas
Stop holding yourself back from not getting out of your comfort zone. By stagnating, you achieve the same work that feels comfortable for you. You end up with the same results. Stepping out of your comfort zone even on a gradual basis allows you to see your progress in your personal life and in your work. By expanding yourself your thoughts, ideas and opinions may surprise you and your co-workers. Your results will be better than you expect. The more you feel comfortable in taking a gradual step outside of your comfort you will not miss the opportunities that have been passing you by.
Transform your creative thoughts, ideas and opinions into breakthrough results that will boost your business to the next level of your success. Is your business ready to move into the 21st Century for explosive growth?
