Tough Times Don’t Last, Intelligent organizations Do

Tough Times don’t Last, But Intelligent Organizations and Well Planned Champions Do. You can actually gain market share (may be not revenue) while others are Shrinking.

As we head in 2009, Things might look a tad bit gloomy with pink slips and pay freezes. Innovative organizations are thinking of newer ways of revenue generation as the good old things you did in 2008 will yield less than 50% of your revenue in 2009.

Together as a well planned cohesive team, Organizations should meticulously draft the 2009 charter and game plan. “Execution” and “Weekly Reviews” is going to be the key differentiator once you have the plan for 2009 drafted.

Understand the Personal Goals of your key executives and work towards assisting them with achieving those as well while they work towards ensuring the Business Goals are achieved. It is time to show we care for each associate and not just their sales/marketing goal achievement.

Here are a few quotes that I found worth sharing as you begin the journey into the 2009

“Whether you think you can or whether you think you can’t, you’re right”  (Henry Ford) -THINK YOU CAN & MAKE IT HAPPEN IN 2009

“Never worry about action, but only about inaction”  (Winston Churchill)

-START ACTION NOW IN JANUARY 2009, Don’t wait

“Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds”  (Albert Einstein)
-THERE WILL BE A LOT OF NAYSAYERS & MEDICORE MINDS – YOU CAN MAKE IT HAPPEN WITH YOUR FOCUS

May this year be the best year of your life!

Happy 2009!
