Managing Business Problems
In business, it’s easy to spot the problems, but management is how you decide to solve them. Most are not equipped to take on the challenge of handling difficult situations and employees. Entrepreneurs and business owners who are great problem solvers will succeed in helping their clients by pinpointing their needs. We interviewed our client Michael Bellia, the CFO of Bellia Enterprises. His extensive experience in finance of operations allows him to give insight on how he was able to streamline the business at Bellia Enterprises. We helped his business with Commercial Insurance and Employee Benefits by thinking outside the box when it comes to managing the ins and outs of insurance and benefits. Navigating business is not as simple as it use to be, especially with the growth of technology and economics.
Focus On Sales
Emailing, texting, social media, and smartphones make it easier than ever to get your message out to your target audience. Figuring out the right channels to connect with the demographic you are seeking is key to converting an audience into customers. Having a sales team that understands your marketing and sales goals is integral to the success of your business. According to Michael, “Once you acquire a good sales team, you’re more so managing people and personalities and the day to day problems. The job kind of changes as you grow. As your business changes, you need to be able to adapt.” Being a good manager to your sales team means guiding them in the direction that your business is going and solving any issues that they cannot handle.
Adapt To The Obstacles Around You
The job changes as you grow. As your business changes, you need to be able to adapt. It’s essential to have a clear goal that everyone in the business completely understands. Michael says, “A lot of small businesses are really good at what they do, but they may not have experience in running a business. For any small business or entrepreneur to get in touch with people who know a lot about business, it takes away the core thing that they know and focus on the wrong things. They do not know how to properly run the business and understand cash flow.” Obstacles will arise more often than you think. You must be prepared to take alternate paths to find solutions in order to achieve the goals that you put in place.
Managing People And Personalities
One of the most important responsibilities as a manager is assigning roles for each person in your business. There also needs to be a level of personal engagement and attention to detail that you give to your employees to build trust and a strong relationship. Examining your own management qualities and improving certain traits like communication can increase employee productivity in the workplace. Provide meaningful feedback to lead your team in the right direction, but be prepared to give feedback that is both positive and negative. Praising someone for a job well done will boost morale, while negative feedback corrects the course of action. The most important thing to remember is respect your team members. Respect is the ultimate motivator that will encourage your team to go that extra step to make sure your business succeeds.
