I wanted to offer one more tool for you as you begin getting clear on your action plan.
Now that you have a team gathered around you that can support you while you develop the plan it is time to do a full SWOT analysis.
Most of us have at least heard of a SWOT analysis even if we have yet to participate in one.
Take a look at the image in this email for guidance.
You will be analyzing and recording four categories.
Strengths: List everything that is helpful and already existent within your organization.
Weaknesses: What within your organization could feasibly be harmful to achieving the objective.
Opportunities: What are your opportunities? (These are external to your organization.)
Threats: What could threaten your chances of success from outside your organization.
Knowing the answers to these questions before you begin your action plan allows you to develop a plan that will work in your marketplace.
If you want more advice or tips on how to do this process please email me or give me a call.
