Today we're exploring three reasons why your strategy might not be working as well for you as it could.

170: Three Reasons Why Your Strategy Isn't Working

Something I've been hearing from my clients, collective members, colleagues, and fellow entrepreneurs is that the tried and true strategies we've been using for years just don't seem to be working well right now. While I'm not entirely sure I agree because there are still some strategies that are working well for me, I also understand that's not the case for everyone.

Show Notes

Something I’ve been hearing from my clients, collective members, colleagues, and fellow entrepreneurs is that the tried and true strategies we’ve been using for years just don’t seem to be working well right now. While I’m not entirely sure I agree because there are still some strategies that are working well for me, I also understand that’s not the case for everyone. So, in today’s episode, I want to explore three reasons why your strategy might not be working as well for you as it could. On a related note, I’ll be diving even deeper into this topic during my masterclass, The Four Keys to Unlocking Your Success as a Booked Out Transformational Coach, that will be taking place on Thursday, August 24th at 1pm Eastern Time. You can register for the masterclass here.

Topics covered

  • The difference between a strategy and a tactic
  • The importance of making sure your tactics are connected to an overarching strategic plan
  • Why copying someone else’s strategy is not going to work for you
  • My own experience with a toxic group coaching program that reaffirmed by belief in the need for flexibility when it comes to strategic planning
  • How your personal and business visions should factor into your strategic plans
  • The difference between a vision statement and a mission statement

TRANSCRIPT

 
Well, hey there, my friend. I am so happy that you are joining me for another episode of the Coach with Clarity podcast. My name is Lee Chaix McDonough, I am your host. And if this is the first episode of the show that you've ever listened to. Well, welcome. I am so excited that you have found us and I hope that you find this episode as well as the 170 episodes we've published over the last 3 years to be really helped in your journey as a coach and as a business owner. And for those of you who have been long time listeners, I'm honored that you have returned, and I hope that you find today's episode to be supportive and helpful. Because something that I have been hearing from my own client and members from my colleagues, from people in the entrepreneurial space, is that the tried and true strategies that we've been talking about for years, just don't seem to be working well in the summer of 2023. And I've been thinking about this a lot. I'm not entirely sure I agree, because there are still some strategies that I've had in place for years that are still working really well for me. But I also hear what people are saying that for whatever reason, these strategies are not providing them with the return on their investment. Whether that investment is time, money, or energy: they’re just not seeing the ROI that they would’ve expected.
