A recent article, 5 Totally Fresh Ways to Stay Focused at Work by Aja Frost says that it takes approximately twenty three minutes for your brain to refocus every time you get distracted— which means work distractions will leave you exhausted and unproductive.  

Here are three tips to help you stay focused at work.

Be watchful of what distracts you.

Identify your productivity-killers and once you’ve identified them, arrange your schedule so that you can complete a particular task in a timely manner. For example, if researching for prospects on Facebook constantly leads to distraction, do it in three short sessions over the day instead of one long session. It’s much easier to avoid distractions when you’re aware that there are other tasks to attend to.

Always remind yourself about your goal.  

Work will always entail a lot of important but boring tasks. For instance, emailing and following up with clients to remind them of the upcoming meetings in meeting space Philadelphia can be very tedious, but if  you look at the larger picture, securing the meeting offers you the chance to move forward with clients and sales, which means you’ll be moving forward as a business. Let that motivate you!

Take short breaks at regular intervals.

This simply means taking a pause in what you’re doing.  For instance, if you have a private space in the office similar to executive suites Philadelphia, then you can spend a few moments to meditate and reflect.  Or perhaps you can have a quick walk outside the office to take some fresh air.  Short breaks refresh and rejuvenate you from a taxing day.   

Conclusion

Distractions at work are almost inevitable, however these three steps should help you gain the power of concentration. Your workplace has major impact on your productivity and YourOffice offers you a wide choice of office and workspace solutions: flexible office space, team office space and virtual office packages. You’ll have access to a complete array of office support and concierge services as well as state-of-the-art business technology.

A recent article, 9 Reasons Why Your New Business Program Is Failing by Karla Cook says that many businesses fail to develop a comprehensive plan to keep the sales pipeline full. Merely staying on the lookout for new business is not a complete business development strategy. 

Here are five causes of a poor business development strategy and what to do to stay afloat.

  1. No one is held responsible for new business development.

When no one is engaged to fully focus on the new business development, this  prevents you from finding new clients and leaves your pipeline empty.

Require your team in executive suites Denver to set aside time and resources to search for new clients to keep the ball rolling.  

  1. Not targeting a particular demographic.

Your efforts are going to fail if you try to market your business without targeting a particular group of people.

Know exactly who your target market is and tailor your efforts to perfectly fit them.

  1. Not following up after a meeting.  

It will leave your prospects thinking that you’re not really serious about your business. 

Instead of passively waiting after an initial meeting with your prospect in meeting space Denver, follow up to keep your proposal fresh in their mind, and give them the opportunity to ask additional questions.

  1. Not recognizing your competitors.

You can’t beat your competitors unless you know who they are, and what they offer that you don’t.

Identify your competitors to get ideas of what you need to do to make your business and offerings stand out.

  1. Not knowing why a pitch was rejected.

Politely ask the prospect to identify specific areas of the proposal that really turned them off so you can improve your sales presentation or your business brand as a whole.

Conclusion

Knowing the causes of poor business development strategy and what to do about them will guide your business in the right direction. YourOffice has come alongside hundreds of businesses looking for everything from staffed flexible offices to agile office space. We know your business is unique, and your office space shouldn’t be any different. Let us match the perfect space or service to fit your business needs.

A recent article, Feeling Powerless? 5 Ways to Change That. Fast by Devon Smiley says that many small businesses feel powerless in business negotiations; they draw back because of big business competitors that use their size and influence to bully.

True enough, as a small business owner, you are not going to have as much power in a business discussion, but that doesn’t mean you lose your influence.

Here are four tips that’ll help boost your power in any negotiation.

Create flexibility

Having a wider scope for negotiation and various options will give you more say over what happens. For instance, expecting to earn five thousand dollars on a project? Here’s how to get it.

    • Consider quoting a little higher so there is room for negotiations.
    • Agree to split into payment plans to give time adjustments.
    • Have a few alternate proposals so you’re not offering an exclusive option.

Don’t rush

The pressure to close a deal rises as deadlines approach and you find yourself rushing. Give yourself adequate time to discuss and find a solution. Having the power over your own business will go a long way in helping you put this into place.

Use your natural talents

Discover your inherent talents/skills and then use them in your negotiations. Maybe you’re not really good in negotiations, but you can compete through building relationships, or planning or doing research or keeping your cool while everybody is going crazy. Use your strength to your advantage.

Call for help

When you hit a road bump…call for help. There’s someone in your network to lend a hand and help you get back on track. Don’t be afraid to ask for help.

Conclusion

These tips will help you strengthen your power to negotiate and compete with other businesses even if you’re the “little guy” in the business world. If you want to magnify your business image and to have a highly professional presence, YourOffice Lake Mary has come alongside dozens of businesses looking for everything from office space Lake Mary to meeting space Lake Mary. We know your business is unique, and your office space shouldn’t be any different. Let us match the perfect space or service to fit your business needs.

Do you believe that how you start your day will determine your productivity?  Well, a recent article The Perfect Schedule For Ultimate Productivity by Jacob Shriar says that the things you do in the first hour or two when you wake up will set you up for the rest of your day. Thus, starting your day right is beneficial to your productivity.

Here are a few things to do from the time you wake up to the time you start your work, whether from your home office or in a small office space Charlotte or in executive suites Charlotte.  Be consistent and do these as part of your morning routine.

Eat your breakfast.  

No matter how busy the day will be, eat a healthy breakfast (never, ever attempt to skip breakfast; you will be sluggish and thus ruin your productivity). Oatmeal, eggs, banana, apple and avocado are some foods that will increase your productivity. 

Daily exercise.

It boosts your energy to get your day started but it doesn’t need to be much.  It can be a fifteen to twenty-minute run or brisk walk outside or can be a few pushups and sit-ups in your room. Remember daily exercise will keep you fit.

Meditate.

Again, this doesn’t require much. You can take ten minutes of serenity and calmness to prepare yourself for a productive, happy day.

Read something intellectual and motivational.

Read something that will help you grow as a person and continually inspire you throughout the day. You can read inspirational quotes from your favorite author or a short blog about work-life balance.

Conclusion

Remember that your energy and willpower are at peak in the morning, so take advantage of that for a productive and happy day.  Starting your day in a good mood and in an awesome workplace environment is a win win. YourOffice has come alongside hundreds of businesses looking for everything from staffed flexible offices to agile office space.

Helpful Tips to Run Successful Meetings

A recent article, 5 Tips for Running Meetings People Willingly Attend by Cameron Herold says that business meetings encourage your staff to elevate the business to the next level if done properly.

Here are a few tips to ensure your meetings are productive.

Create an agenda in advance

Creating an agenda ahead of time and determining how much time is needed for each discussion allows you to make the most of your time. This allows you to adjust and divide subjects into separate groups before the meeting starts, instead of trying to wing it.

Invite only essential employees.

Preparing your agenda in advance allows you to determine who are important in the meeting and help you determine how many people you’ll be inviting and how long the meeting is to last and what technology is required.  All of these affect which meeting room is right for you.

Find the perfect meeting space.

Finding the perfect meeting space Charlotte or booking a meeting space in meeting rooms for rent Southpark is very crucial to have a successful and productive meeting, don’t underestimate the importance of functionality and ambiance.

Start meetings on time.

Ensure to start meetings promptly to avoid run over— encourage meeting participants to arrive on time.

Know your role.

Conducting successful meetings requires everyone to have an assigned role. Assigning each of the roles prior to starting the meeting will make your meetings more organized and effective.

Encourage participation.

Encourage the members of the team, especially those timid employees to give their ideas first, then move on to the more talkative types and then the senior staff—if a bright idea comes out, then the team has solved the problem on its own, which builds confidence and teamwork too.

Conclusion

Business meetings when properly handled are beneficial to business success.  If you’re looking for your business meeting venue, YourOffice is a leader in providing the most prestigious fully serviced office space and meeting space for any size business.

It means people can work remotely from their company’s head office or a business can have an office without the worries and distractions of having to rent, set up, staff, equip and maintain an office. 

How to implement flexible working?

There are various types of flexible working, as follows:

  • Job sharing
  • Part-time work
  • Compressed hours
  • Remote working
  • Flexi- time

If you’re an employer, find which options are best for specific roles within your organization and then discuss with your staff about adopting flexible working.

If you’re an employee, think of how you could do your tasks better through flexible working and then talk with your manager. If he allows remote working and you’re living in Denver, then you can work a couple of days a week in Denver Shared Office Space or Denver Flexible Office Spacefor your convenience,efficiency and productivity.

Here are some pro tips to plan your vacation and truly enjoy it.

Meet with key team members.

Schedule a meeting with your key personnel, perhaps in meeting space Lake Mary and discuss with them your upcoming vacation. Ensure all your daily functions are clearly assigned to your team members—that everyone knows what to do and has ample time to ask you about any concerns they might have before you go.

Assign executive tasks to key personnel. 

Clearly assign to key staff (those with decision making abilities) powers to decide on crucial matters while you’re gone, and don’t entrust such powers to more than a small handful of people.

Inform your important clients. 

Inform your important clients that you’re taking a vacation, and ask what you can do to help them before you go.

Assure your vacation is truly a relaxing one.

Tell your family that you’re going to spend and enjoy your vacation with them, leaving and delegating your responsibilities with your most trusted employees in Lake Mary Agile Office Space for a while.

Decorate your space. Your office should be comfortable and attractive but it should also be functional and efficient. Decorating a small office space Denver style can be a challenge! If you like, you can have subtle “cowboy” accents like rustic leather and furs. Have fun with it, but keep it professional!

Stay organized. A cluttered workspace reduces your productivity and curbs your overall level of comfort. Hence, only the necessary stuff should be on your desk and ensure they are accessible. Don’t muddle your workspace with decorative items instead put them on the wall in front of your desk where you can see them.

Provide a quiet room. Stress in the workplace is inevitable. So provide a small private space where you and your staff can spend a few moments to meditate and reflect.  This is a great way to refresh and rejuvenate from a hectic day.

Conclusion

Considering these tips can help increase productivity and reduce stress.  It’s great if you’re working from the comfort of your home, nevertheless if you want to enhance your business presence, YourOffice offers you a wide choice of office and workspace solutions: flexible office space, team office space and virtual office packages.
