A small business strategic plan for leading change

Most of us allow our minds to swing back and forth between dealing with the reality we see in front of us and nostalgia for the way things were. In the marketplace, spending too much time with the latter half of this pendulum swing is an indulgence at best, and dangerously delusional at worst. With change happening more rapidly than ever before, this increased velocity is challenging even when we like the new stuff, but it can be paralyzing when we don’t.

It’s a fool’s errand to just take the direct hits from the rapid-fire changes the world aims at our small businesses. Sustained success in our light-speed world requires developing a plan that identifies and establishes practices that help us anticipate change, manage it and actually lead with it.

Recently on my radio program, The Small Business Advocate Show, I talked with change expert, Rich Horwath, about developing a strategic plan that will set your business up to function effectively regardless what the world and the marketplace throws at you. Rich is a new member of my Brain Trust, founder and president of the Strategic Thinking Institute and author of four books including his latest, Deep Dive.

    Many do not see the damage done by those who hire illegals unless you are in the direct path, but know this you are paying on multiple levels and here’s how. Obama admitted that illegals go to the E.R. and we pay for them. Hospitals pass that cost on to all of us directly and indirectly because businesses that provide health care benefits have to mark up their prices to cover it and it gets passed on to other businesses. In addition to what other businesses, individuals and families buy, our state and federal government buys Billions of dollars of those same goods and services that had to be raised to cover higher health car costs. If employment verification were mandatory, it would open up 7 Million jobs and the majority of illegals would leave which reduces the flood to our E.R., essentially reducing costs across the board, which saves each one of us, states and the federal government Billions! Imagine what we could do with that money-infrastructure and other useful needs!
