A Happy New Year to you!

I hope you had an enjoyable festive break and have come back with a clear vision and the motivation to make 2015 your best year so far.

But what have you planned for in terms of your own development? You may well have some plans to invest in marketing, new premises, employees, product development, equipment or a whole multitude of other areas of your business.

But what about you?

Last year I invested almost 10% of the company turnover in my own development. When I was doing this some people I know from larger organisations questioned the level of investment. But large organisations have a training budget and look to use it wisely. That is what we should be doing with SME businesses. We need to plan to invest in our people but most importantly we need to invest in our development as business leaders.

2015 is no different for me. I have already invested in a 12 month programme and have another couple of courses on my radar. The definition of insanity is “doing the same things and expecting different results”. Well there is no better way to change your approach than to gain new knowledge, learn how to use new business strategies and most importantly develop yourself to ensure you are motivated and performing at your peak.

In our 7 step leadership model – PI Leadership™ – the whole journey starts with self-leadership. Working on yourself before you do anything else. This is based on the belief that mindset and your own performance as a business leader will have a huge impact on your business results, no matter what the size of your business is (solo or an SME with employees).

So before the year starts to move along at a pace, take some time to look at where you feel you must develop your own skills and expertise. Set up a reading plan, go to some events, invest in some quality training, but don’t neglect the most important asset in your business!
