Real-ationships, a Must in the Hyper-Connected World

Puzzle - Real-ationships

Putting Real-ationships together.

I find it interesting how changing a letter or two can open up a whole new arena for a person’s mind.  In listening to the sermon recently, the word Real-ationships was coined and discussed in a spiritual sense but I found this opened a whole different view for me in terms of leadership.

Business Growth Stages – Understanding Potentials

Building Sustainable Business

Idea Go FDP 2014

Your company is by all intent, an organism that is composed of various cells including owners, employees, customers and partners that make it work, when all are aligned, similar to cells in our own bodies.

This being said, your company therefore should have a similar life cycle as we do as individuals.

With that in mind, what company life stages has your organization been through and what should you expect next? Is there a balance between entrepreneurial and structured environments or does it go to an extreme on one side or the other?

Innovation Concepts – 4 Ways to Embrace in Your Company?

TwoBee FDP 2014

Is Your Purpose Powerful Enough?

Building Sustainable Business

Idea Go FDP 2014

A strong purpose provides a major component of your businesses foundation.  It is at the base of any successful visionary business. Some believe it might be the most important component and I happen to be one of them.

It is a fact the greater your sense of purpose, the more powerfully and energetically you will be driven by vision, and less swayed by inevitable setbacks and detours.

The details of marketing and running a business are important. However, you need to incorporate those details and skills over a strong foundation of compelling purpose. What may happen when that foundation is not there, the temptation to walk away when things get difficult – or even just slack off when there’s boring work to be done – can be overwhelming.
