No matter how much preparation you may put in, there are times when the competition is stronger. It’s important is to learn lessons when it’s not gone to plan and use this to become more determined when the next opportunity arises.
Critics have identified three main reasons why England has lost the first two opening games for the first time in World Cup history:
· A Lack of Experience
· A Lack of Communication
· Strong Competition
Within the business world, we also face tough competition on a daily basis; rivals that can hinder progress and ruin our plans. The same three issues that face the England team are points that can be learnt from in the business world.
A Lack of Experience
No matter how long we’ve been in business, there’s always more to learn. The best way to feel confident when competing against more established companies for business is to dedicate time to preparation. Allocate time to research companies that could be potential clients; research your target audience to know how best to engage with them; and research data that could inform business decisions.
A Virtual Assistant can be tasked with a specific project. Why not use our services to support you with research, preparing documents or collating resources before a presentation to a potential client. We can also research your target client group and recommend where to focus your energy and finances, or draw together data that would be valuable for informing future business plans.
A Lack of Communication
