My 2010 Resolution is...

THE TALK... | Strategies & Practices

We’ve been doing The Talk for a couple of years now, and what I’m really loving about the feedback lately is that on the topics to which we cycle around to annually, we’re starting to paint a year-to-year picture of the industry’s mood. So while there’s a lot going on right now—not the least of which is the status of the health care reform bills and soon-to-be-implemented lead paint rules—I was taking a peek at our poll from the first week in January in the past and I just couldn’t resist.

What’s your business’s New Year’s resolution? C’mon…fess up.

Two years ago, more than 30 percent of participants aimed to just make it out of the year alive and kicking. Last year wasn’t much better than 2008 so I wouldn’t have expected 2009’s resolutions to be particularly cheery either.

But what about 2010? Some folks are feeling more upbeat, so perhaps your company’s resolution is less about survival and more about expansion? Please send me an email and let me know what your business resolutions—or if you prefer the word goals instead—are and how do you think you’ll fare in accomplishing them? What is it that you’ve been meaning to tackle for some time, but perhaps the economy threw a damp towel on your plans?

My 2010 resolution for my company is...
To kick it up a notch with customer satisfaction.
To broaden our product offering.
To find ways to be leaner (companies can shed pounds too!)
To find a new market niche.
To expand our geographic scope.
To focus on employee retention and productivity.
To just weather the storm and come out of this recession relatively unscarred.
