Module 1 – Leadership
It all begins with you, the business owner. Your business success is down to you and you only. The leadership module helps you to understand why you are in business, what life is about for you. Once you have set some personal goals and understand what you want, we can then begin to give the business a purpose.
Maybe the purpose is to deliver you financial freedom or maybe there is another purpose.
Next we can look at the entrepreneurial mindset. What beliefs do you need to become successful? The easiest way to determine this is to model from other successful people.
Finally your success depends on what you do with your time. Do the right things and your business will grow. Do the wrong things and your business will struggle.
We show you how to find the time to work on your business and not in it, and show you the things that will help you to develop your business – your key success activities.
Understanding your personal and business purpose will give you clarity and direction. This will help motivate you and help you lead others.

Understanding where you are right now in your business development cycle is a powerful means to drive you forward to your goal.

Kennedy once put it, “Efforts and courage are not enough without purpose and direction.” A fundamental understanding of where you are and where you want to be will enable you to eventually reach your full potential.
