Working on your business……..whatever that may be.
Today the world moves at a fast pace and time goes by so quickly. We often get busy and we forget to take time out for what is truly important. Many things are important to me, one of them being my business and doing the very best I can for my clients and my staff in an ever changing world. My personal opinion is that as more and more tasks become automated unemployment will rise, client expectations will shift and only a few businesses will survive and flourish. I want to make sure we are one of those businesses and in order to address these concerns, late last year I applied for and was selected to attend a Strategic Leadership Program at The Stanford University Graduate School of Business in California, along with thirty eight other advisers from Australia.
Having returned from the US last week, I can honestly say to date this was the best week of study I have completed. The main areas of study were business culture, how to get it right and how this will shape and strengthen your business, how to lead change within your organisation, how to foster collaboration and exchange and how to strategically apply these practices to your business.
Part of this study included to trip to the Silicon Valley including a half day at Google where we heard from their Head of Customer Analytics and then a trip to the University of Singularity to hear from some very smart people with incredible ideas that they have now turned into what are anticipated to be huge start-up companies. Hearing their stories and ideas was an amazing experience and it truly hit home and how quickly things within business is changing!
If you would like to hear more about my study trip, we will be running a few information sessions for our clients and their friends and booking can be made via email or by calling the office on 02 6033 2077.
