You have no Mission Statement or Values
These things are important. What do you stand for? Nothing? if you the Boss stands for nothing, then how on earth can you expect your team to stand for something?
Your business needs direction. It needs to make a statement that says
“This is who we are and this is what we stand for”
Otherwise you don’t really have a business – you have a job with a bunch of other floaters floating around aimlessly.
This isn’t rocket science. Give your team something to work for. Talk to them about the industry and create a vision together. Get it on paper – put it on the wall and get enthusiastic about it. If you don’t – then all you are doing is going to your job day in and day out.
That’s no fun.
You Don’t have a Systems Manual
A systems manual includes a Procedure Manual and a Policy Manual as a minimum. This document has everything in it.
Couldn’t be bothered writing one? Well, should you really be running a business then?
Get one of these documents implemented and see how dramatic the improvements are to your business, turnover and staff moral.

Your Team is not an integral part of implementing your vision, mission and quality control
You the Boss think you are King Ping. You huff and puff your way around your business hiring and firing and expecting people to perform instantly.
Chances are your team has a high turnover rate. They don’t care about you because you don’t care about them. The first thing in a good performing business is the TEAM.
It is a TEAM effort. Forget the huffing and puffing and become one of the TEAM and watch your business explode.
Good business performance comes from doing things properly, documenting systems and treating your team and customers with the utmost respect.
Do this and you will have a much better chance of creating a sustainable business that gets repeat work and performs to the highest levels.
Another 3 hypothetical reasons why a business might not be progressing as expected
Lack of Innovation
One of the primary reasons a business may be going nowhere is a failure to innovate and adapt to changing market trends. In today’s fast-paced business landscape, staying stagnant can lead to losing relevance and falling behind competitors. Businesses that don’t invest in research and development or fail to explore new opportunities are likely to struggle in the long run.
Poor Marketing and Branding
Even with a great product or service, a business can fail to gain traction if it lacks effective marketing and branding strategies. Without proper promotion and visibility, potential customers may be unaware of the business’s offerings. Additionally, a weak or unclear brand identity can make it challenging to connect with the target audience and build brand loyalty.
Inefficient Operations and Management
Internal inefficiencies can significantly hinder a business’s growth. If processes are not streamlined, costs can rise, productivity can decrease, and customer satisfaction may suffer. Moreover, inadequate management, including poor decision-making and ineffective leadership, can lead to disorganization and lack of direction, preventing the company from achieving its full potential.
It’s essential for businesses to regularly assess their strategies, adapt to the market, and improve their operations to ensure continued growth and success.
