The sounds of silence – means you have space to listen

The sounds of silence – means you have space to listen

I was recently with a group of start up businesses; this small group of founders was excitedly debating the best way to promote their businesses using social media. Each was bemoaning that they were not getting much traction on their twitter and Facebook page… and one was asking me if it was ‘worthwhile’ to start a blog.
Here’s the thing: Only blog, tweet and FaceBook if you have something worth saying that might be of interest and value to someone else. They are not promotional tools they are listening tools…
It is the same inside your business – as leaders we don’t have all the answers – sometimes we are just so much better off to not say anything. I was recently in a planning meeting and because I am the founder of RedBalloon and have been hanging around for 11 years – I found that if I spoke in the planning meeting then a disproportional amount of attention may have been attached to my thoughts.
As a leader my job was to listen, both inside and outside the business.
Silence works.

Answering your #1 Biggest Business Challenge question tip: 

Go beyond just saying "Poor Cashflow" or "Unreliable Team". 

Instead, give Naomi details & specifics on how this is currently your #1 Biggest Business Challenge. 

I.e. "Every month I'm struggling to pay my bills on time because there just isn't consistent cash flow coming into the business. I've tried sticking to budgets in the past & pay myself less to keep some extra funds aside for emergencies, but still every month there seems to be another financial fire to be put out. I don't know what to do about it, so I'm just grinding it out."
