Despite turmoil, here's where you should focus

As a business coach for more than 25 years, I have talked to a lot of business owners across various industries and everyone has a story to tell. They all have strengths, weaknesses and challenges to overcome.

While many of them are unique to their specific business, you would be amazed to know that there are many commonalities among all leaders. After all, we all have the same end goal in mind, which is why, today, I wanted to share with you the four things that I think leaders are most responsible for.


As a leader, your first responsibility is to create and honor the vision for your business. When you think about vision, vision is you having a big picture understanding of exactly what it is your business is supposed to be doing.  Your vision, your mission, your values.  This is the reason that you are in business. It includes what you are trying to accomplish for your marketplace and what your values are. Your vision also talks about what are the goals and priorities of your company. Basically, out of all the things you could be doing with your resources, what are the most important to help your vision become a reality?  And finally, it includes how your business really works and what drives profitability. Everything you do as a leader should honor and support your business's vision.
