At the beginning of 2014 we see that our businesses here in Yorkshire are very much back on the mend. It has been reported that we are the fastest growing region in the UK outside of London. This is great news. What is important is that we don’t get back into that mess again. Companies need to think of new ways to do things. More sustainable practices that will allow your profits to stay steady. There is nothing that will allow you to do more than having a steady and loyal core customer base that sticks by you no matter what. How can you pull this off? What can you do differently to ensure such a loyal following?
Well it is often said that your relationships are a mirror of yourself. This is no different with the relationships you have with your customers. It is like the saying, children don’t do as you say, they do as you do. So whatever you want the customers to do, you need to behave in that way. You want loyalty? Act loyal. You want passion for you product? Act passionate. You want people to share your brand? Then you must share with others. It really is as simple as that. You are the controller of your own destiny, no one else. You can sit there and say “yeah but what about this time or that time?” Well simply no, there is no one else who can do anything for you other than yourself. This is enhanced by your interaction with others. A third party like a mentor, a coach or just a friend can add a perspective you simply don’t have. All challenges are simply a question of perspective.
We are no different here at Vision, we are here to help and give. That is why we have created a brand new product, Discovery, to bring coaching to as many people as we can (forgive the plug). This is how we want to see ourselves. A company that helps others achieve what they want to achieve in any way possible. We hope this will give access to the benefits of coaching for those who may have in the past, not been able to afford it.
So look into the mirror what do you see staring back at you? Now look again and imagine what you want to see. Then go and be it.
