Vision & Values

Subject Matter Content Webinar – 90mins inc Q&A
12.00pm -1.30pm

Determining your values and defining what success means to you is the very first step when planning for success! If you don’t know what both of those things actually mean to you personally for your business, then how do you know where to go, what to prioritise or who to work with? So join Jules and dive deep through a guided, action packed hour and complete the session with your values defined, knowing exactly what success means to YOU and having developed a clear, consise One Liner that will become your yardstick for any and all business decisions.

What you will learn:

1. Identify your individual values in business

2. Define what success means to you for your business

3. Develop your ‘One Liner’ to help you make decisions and take action that’s in line with your values & what success means to you!

4. Run through a Lean Business Canvas Model activity that you can then go and complete later on

The Big Picture

Now’s the time to make a cuppa (or pour a wine!) and dive deep into what you want your business to be long term. Jules will guide you through key questions like what’s the end goal? selling the business for a profit? leaving a legacy? your children taking over? do you have a huge company or a small team? how profitable are you? do you partner with any charities or causes close to your heart? how structured is your business – could you take a month off and still get paid / have happy clients? All these things are what you need to think about when you set up your Big Picture – which is also a key measure of success and determined by your values and HOW you want to live your life. All this work is so connected!
