In our previous blog, we mentioned revamping your business. In order to properly revamp your business, you need to be aware of your business presence. Being in touch with your business persona will help you develop better clientele relationships and management skills. It can also make you more aware of your practice as well.
As people grow more successful, sometimes the money can get to their head. This results in arrogance or a distorted view of business strategy. As a professional, the key to loyal clients is to be humble. Many business managers and CEOs make the mistake of appearing to be above others due to their status. This only makes clients feel that you are not interested in their business. Be kind and courteous, no matter what rank you are or they might be!
Speaking of growing professionally, maybe your beliefs are different now than when you first started. Make sure your statement and goals align with your current beliefs. Are you still trying to appeal to the same audience? Do you want to modify your services? Working with others, both clients and teammates, can influence your working style and professional viewpoint. Stay close to the ones that have a good work ethic. Maybe you were content serving just your community, but now you’re thinking about expanding. As you evolve, your business presence evolves, too.
Are you still in touch with what your audience wants? In a rapidly changing world, it can be easy for your business presence to become old-fashioned. Make sure your approach, product, and service are what your modern audience expects.
Being aware of how you function when working is also an element of business presence. When you understand your working style, performance will improve overall. Do you work better alone or with others? Are you more technical or analytical? Do you work better in the morning or at night? Knowing your business personality type will help you work with others better and select a work routine that best works for you.
For best results, ask your peers and colleagues for an honest opinion about you. Allow yourself to be open for constructive criticism- it’ll help you in the long run. You may realize things you didn’t know about yourself before. Such as, maybe you ramble on or your tone of voice, etcetera. Self-reflection is the key to becoming the best professional you can be!
