What do Goals have to do with Money – Executive Success Australia

What do goals have to do with money? What does Soccer have to do with Goals?

With more and more financial strife being promoted in the media and other silly financial decisions being taken by governments it is easy to get fixated on money.

YES–we do need money to live in the western world! However it is not an object–it is the results of doing something for someone of value. To do anything at all you must have a purpose…

This applies to an individual and any group.

You must know the goals and purposes of your company to effectively:

1)      Get full staff commitment and productivity.

2)      Know which roles to fill, in what sequence.

3)      Correctly financial plan for growth.

4)      Set priorities on a daily, weekly and monthly basis.

5)      Create sensible company policy

6)      And more…

You can see that there must be a game, a target, a dream one is working towards. All management and administration and in fact, work, must be aligned in that direction. We feel happy when we know we are making progress to achieving our dreams and we feel unhappy when this is not clear. This applies to all personnel in the company and not just the owners and executives.

The staff need to know where the company is going and given this is a worthwhile objective, will support and contribute greatly in attaining it. They can take pride in doing their part in helping get the job done.

A business is just like an individual it must have an overall guiding purpose or it will not work in unison and will not achieve anything.

I remember vividly the French beat the Brazilian soccer team in the 1998 Soccer World Cup, 3 -0. They did not have the superstar players but were a unified team with set policy. The Brazilians played like a group of brilliant individuals with the purpose to be stars! A team with a clear goal and purpose will always beat a collection of more talented individuals with no group purpose.

Clearing up company goals and purposes with your team can create more cooperation and production than you can imagine. Make sure you have it clear first!
