If you are getting stuck in the process of reaching your goals, I bet you need more accountability. We all need accountability to the activities that drive our business and help us reach our goals. Implement Key Performance Indicators(KPI) that you can hold yourself accountable to and incorporate some accountability partners to increase effectiveness.
What are Key Performance Indicators (KPI)? KPI is industry jargon for performance measurement. KPIs are commonly used by an organization to evaluate its success or the success of a particular activity in which it is engaged.
Here is how you can put some KPI into place for your business.
First, you need to have a goal. Refer to this blog
, if you need help establishing goals
Next, you need to identify the activities that drive success of that goal. For example, your goal may be to acquire 7 new payroll clients each month. The activity that you must do to achieve the goal (that is your KPI) may be such things as: attending a certain number of networking events each week, getting a certain number of client referrals, having strategic partner meetings, posting a certain number of blogs each week, dedicating a certain number of hours to making introductions for others.
Once you know your secret sauce (your KPI), visit your KPI everyday. Find accountability partners to hold you to completing the activities.
