CPR Level U.P. series: Creating a Business Mindset

Updated: Mar 4

Cultivating a business mindset commences with the intent of the leader. Regardless of the technique applied, the key is to set your mind on becoming an entrepreneur who will eventually make your company successful.  While cultivating this mindset, it is also essential to upskill and recruit a coach for a more handheld approach.  Today's post offers some tips:

1-Set Specific Goals

​If you have not listened to episodes #30, #32, and #37 of CPR's online radio program "Jumpstart with CPR," please do so.  It highlights some key points on goal setting. To be an entrepreneur, you must think strategically and tactically.  A leader sets specific goals to achieve the overall business goal or strategic plan.  You can create these goals by writing them down, as they have been proven more effective at forming habits. Don’t be afraid to write down bold goals that stretch you out of your comfort zone.

2-Always Ask Questions

In the 21st century, curiosity is currency. It's one way to foster creativity.  Curiosity or asking questions is another critical component of achieving success as an entrepreneur.  It would be best to ask as many questions as possible because the more you know, the more likely you will succeed. Be sure to ask other entrepreneurs many questions about their businesses and how they achieved success.  

3-Focus On Your Strengths

Your strengths are also significant in developing your business mindset. By understanding your strengths, you will discover ways to use them to help build your business. CPR's Moral Leadership Coaching devised a plan to assist the leader in quickly identifying its strengths. The link is provided below for your convenience:

4-Be Accountable

Effective accountability is a balancing act.  As a leader, one must also be accountable for everything you do, including employees. This also means treating everyone involved in the business as a customer. It would be best to ensure you meet your obligations and responsibilities. This means being accountable for yourself and other people’s work and actions. The Melena Consulting group offered four pillars of Effective Accountability (2024): people, purpose, performance, and progression.

5-Ask for Feedback

Employees are comfortable with feedback when the leader cultivates an organization where feedback is nurtured.  Feedback is a powerful tool that provides accurate results and creates a solid and productive organizational culture at no cost.  Some questions you can pose for feedback:

Is your business strategy the best way to achieve success? What can be done to improve your business? How can you strengthen your business model?  Ultimately, implementing all or a few of these steps in your life will help you become more of an entrepreneur and a better leader in your day-to-day life. Be sure to share your thoughts, comment, and provide feedback if this post was helpful.

Warm Regards,
