Leadership development: Always Have an Eye on the Future…

When it comes to leadership, how do you stay ahead of the competition? How do you innovate in your niche? How can your team think differently when most people hold on tightly to what they know? To have the competitive advantage, it’s all about keeping your eye on the future and looking for opportunities.

Finding opportunities can be difficult. in my experience,
it is easiest to identify opportunities vs. create them. But make no
mistake, identifying opportunities takes real effort. 

Here are 5 ways you can open your mind and begin see
possibilities in front of you.

  1. Read
    more, and all not social media.
  2. Look
    for trends in your customer’s behavior, stress points, and issues.  They
    are opportunities to solve.
  3. Don’t
    assume what you have known is applicable now. Being in the “know” limits what
    you can see.
  4. Opportunities
    with bad execution are lost opportunities that cost you time and money.
  5. Hang
    with people who are smarter and don’t see things through your same view
    finder.  Think with them.  They will open your world.

When you are constantly asking yourself “What opportunity
is this presenting me?” you will be surprised to find out how much room for
growth, innovation, and change presents itself.

Be an opportunity identifier!
