InFocus Growth Planning One-Dayer: What to expect
An InFocus Growth Planning One-Dayer takes on board where you’re at and helps you make decisions about where you want to be.
As part of the InFocus programme, Growth Planning Days, are a CLOSE-UP one-dayer that will help you take a detailed, objective look at your business.
During these intensive, one-to-one, facilitated days; you’ll focus on every element of your business with a Business Development Manager who’s right for you. Your day will be built around understanding what stage your business is at now, where you want to be, what you need to do to get there and how best to go about meeting your personal and business goals and ambitions.
The morning starts with a diagnostic of your business and an opportunity for self-reflection. You’ll learn about your own entrepreneur type and you’ll review six key elements integral to growth: how your business is adding value, exactly who and where your customers are, how (or if) they know about you, your credibility with suppliers, what your team is like and how your financials look. All this pre-lunch activity gives you a thorough understanding of what you want, what’s holding you back what might need to change.
The afternoon takes a deep dive into your individual journey shining a light on all the aspects you need to think about – then puts it into focus. Using a further eight key elements, ranging from Strategy, planning and succession all the way to Innovation, via Customers and sales, you will prioritise a couple of areas to focus on first, and also create a growth plan preparing you for all the things that are likely to come-up when growing your business between 100 – 500k. This is a process – in which you and your Business Development Manager are central – which asks pertinent questions, identifies next steps and starts planning the growth which is right for you (this process also continues to offer you support to achieve it).
The whole day marks the start of a meaningful conversation. A day away from your business might seem like the last thing you need, but time spent with us will give you the perspective and clarity you need to see your business in a new light, work out where it is and grasp the opportunities to grow.
