1. Make them aware during the interview process your expectations.
We all do this. Interview the applicants, do background checks, call references, but do you explain your expectations thoroughly? Make sure to take the time to explain the culture, how small business works, the fact that you want them to treat this as if it were their own business. Then ask them, “knowing this, do you still want to work here?” If nothing else, it will give them a chance to say no if they are not in it to win it. In that case, consider yourself lucky you took the time to talk to them in the beginning. Make your intentions for them clear from the beginning, but do it in a way that is motivating and exciting. The goal is to make the anxious to come to work every day.

Enroll yourself in a Frequent flyer program if you travel to a particular city often. I would suggest that you sign up for ALL the free mileage points/loyalty programs you come across that would be of benefit to you. If you’re using online sites like Expedia and CheapOair, it’s likely you’ll be traveling with two different airlines so you can be earning points on both. It would be advantageous also though to accumulate as many points as you can under the one frequent flyer program so you can redeem points quicker. You would be best to use the frequent flyer program you travel with the most eg United airlines Mileage Plus Program or bmi whatever airline it maybe. Don’t forget to also keep your boarding passes with you until your statement has arrived so you can cross check all points have been received.
When my daughter ran distance races, she trained her body to build endurance by putting in the necessary miles daily. She also exercised her mind to learn course management. She discovered in her first races that adrenaline would push her out hard and fast from the start and carry her for a while. If she kept up that pace, she often led, but when she approached the finish, she had no energy left and fell way back. The only result that counts is when you cross the finish line. She discovered how to pace herself, starting strong, settling into a comfortable, economical pace, with enough reserve for a powerful finish kick. Such a pace allowed her to compete and succeed.
Over time, every business develops a certain amount of fat. These are processes, tasks and departments which do not directly serve a key objective of the organization.

You need to be able to radically improve or shift your value proposition in order to compete successfully.

As with any executive tool, it is used to help an institution do an improved job – to concentrate its energy; ensure that members of the organization are working toward the same goals; and to appraise and direct the organization in a changing environment. Strategic planning is a disciplined effort to produce decisions and actions that shape and guide what a school is, what it does, and why it does it, with a focus on the future. Strategic planning has its complexities in terms of what it requires. It is aimed at an overall focus of the organization’s resources on mutually preset planned quantifiable outcomes. Useful plans include an organization’s entire resources and purpose so it must be developed calculatingly and attentively (McNamara, 2008).
