Seven Things Every Leader Should Stop Doing In 2021

by Edward D. Hess, author of “Hyper-Learning: How to Adapt to the Speed of Change

The times they are a-changing… and so is the nature of our work. And as our familiar world crumbles around us (thanks, COVID-19!) — and technology keeps snapping up more and more of the tasks humans have always done — we’ll need a whole new set of skills. And that means leaders have some very bad habits to break.

If you’re looking for a good resolution for 2021, don’t focus on new things to start doing. Instead, vow to quit some old, counterproductive leadership behaviors that don’t work in today’s world.

The new world we’re entering has flipped everything upside down. The skills, mindsets, and ways of being that were once prized and sought after have actually become liabilities. And yet too many leaders can’t seem to get with the new program.

How Startup Founders Can Battle Insomnia

As a hard-working entrepreneur, you probably have been encouraged to think that sleep is for the weak. After all, “you snooze, you lose,” right?

The reality is that sleep deprivation can negatively affect your overall health. If you suffer from sleep insomnia, you are probably aware of these unwanted side effects.

Here are the four secrets to battling insomnia as a startup founder.

Decompress Before Bedtime.

Many startup founders work right until bedtime. The problem with this routine is that you’ll end up thinking about work while lying in bed. More than likely, you’ll pay for it the next day.

A better strategy is to stop working at least an hour before bedtime. By doing so, you’ll have time to decompress, whether you spend the time before bedtime reading fiction, working out, or talking to a friend.

Engage in Regular Exercise.

Most people know that there are several health benefits Read the rest

4 Tips To Help You Increase Customer Loyalty

What would your business look like if you were able to increase your retention rates by 10 or 15 percent? How much more profitable would you be? These are questions worth considering as you start fresh in 2021.

What Makes a Loyal Customer?

Customer loyalty is something that businesses have been after for decades. And in today’s competitive environment, it’s something that’s harder to obtain than ever before. Today’s customers – particularly younger consumers – are less brand loyal and tend to switch between brands they see as “basically the same.” However, loyalty is still something that can be achieved if you’re committed enough.

Customer loyalty is typically the result of a proprietary blend of price, value, experience, quality, convenience, notalgia, and expectation. And in the world of social media, there’s also a degree of social acceptance involved. (“What will people think?”)

By cultivating loyalty, you ultimately increase profitability Read the rest

How Younger Workers Can Mentor Older Ones And Move Companies Forward

by Rod Robertson, Managing Partner of Briggs Capital and author of “Winning at Entrepreneurship: Insiders’ Tips on Buying, Building, and Selling Your Own Business

Mentoring usually refers to a manager, executive, or experienced employee guiding a younger person in the workplace, helping them acquire knowledge and new skills that foster professional growth.

But with the expanding role of technology in today’s rapidly evolving business climate, a role reversal sometimes takes place – reverse mentorship. That is, older employees are paired with younger ones who teach them about technology – a strong suit for millennials and Gen Z workers, generations who grew up with technology.

Reverse mentoring can be a plus for businesses in bridging generation gaps and knowledge gaps, and also a lifeline for older workers who otherwise might get phased out. The older people better pay attention to these young people and find a mentor so they … Read the rest

Why A Vaccine For COVID-19 Won’t Restore Small Businesses Overnight

by Terry Monroe, founder and president of American Business Brokers & Advisors (ABBA) and author of “Hidden Wealth: The Secret To Getting Top Dollar For Your Business

The vaccine for the COVID-19 virus recently began shipment. The Wall Street Journal states it will take until sometime in March of 2021 to vaccinate the first 100 million individuals with the highest priority of getting the vaccine. That would leave well over  200 million Americans still in need of the vaccine as we head into spring.

The stock market is doing very well as it hovers around 30,000 – an unbelievable achievement never seen before, even though millions of people have lost their jobs and people continue to lose their jobs on a daily basis. The stock market is based on the theory of expectation, and what it is telling us is that with a vaccine, the economy will Read the rest
