Any business can experience a slow season. What is alarming is when it drags longer than average. When that happens, your business may run the risk of stagnation.
Before you panic, know that there are warning signs that you can spot. These signs would tell you that you might be experiencing a prolonged period of low growth. We will be sharing some of them below for your guidance. If your business is showing any of these signs, reevaluate your actions and do things differently.
- Delayed Deliverables
This may even include important decisions. Failing to deliver what is expected on time may be caused by the lack of competent leadership, demotivated employees, or lack of resources.
- Doing More for Less
Exhausting more resources than ever, but generating insignificant returns is bad for any business. You and your employees may reach the point of burnout before you know it.
- Disengaged Workforce
Resist the temptation of looking everywhere to pass the blame. Try to find out first if you are the cause of your people’s lack of enthusiasm at work.
- Stuck in Old Ways
Old habits die hard, but change is necessary for growth. Remember that you need to change your ways to achieve different results. Most importantly, everyone must know why things are done in a certain way.
- Plans are Stalled
You may find that none of your plans ever materialised. The reason why you may not be able to attend to other items in the pipeline is that your time and resources have already been used up. The worst part is that you achieve nothing despite exhausting your resources.
