Champion Choices: Adaptability

05 May Champion Choices: Adaptability

Champion Choices: Adaptability
“Luminous beings are we…not this crude matter.” ~Yoda
Welcome back! As I’m finishing edits on this, Star Wars day is the top trend on social media so, #MaytheFourthbewithyou. The Yoda quote feels like a fun intro our next step in champion choices.
Last week we talked about accountability, based on some of the keys to success from Tom Ricketts, owner of the Chicago Cubs. This week, we’ll continue with the next piece on his list: Adaptability.
A key to being a successful entrepreneur is being ready to adapt as business evolves in the 21st-century. Technology changes quickly from smart phones to tablets, to the latest apps to communicate and share our latest ideas. Entrepreneurs can stand out by being open to these changes and curious about how they will work well for their personal and professional brand.
Quick pulse check.
How are you feeling this week about committing to your goal? We hope you’re feeling enthusiastic. Simonetta and I are here to help you feel inspired and informed as a future entrepreneur!
Look back at your ideas and check in to see how you are feeling. Knowing your reason for choosing a goal is so important. Are you known for fierce fashion? For sharing inspiring photos? Or finding the best new restaurant on the block? Once you have your “why I want to do this” you build a solid foundation so you can adapt to find the best path.
The best entrepreneurs are open to fresh ideas, ready to handle what comes next and flexible enough to work through challenges that pop up.
Welcome the unexpected
Those who are rigid in their thinking and doing can to get overwhelmed and stressed out when facing a surprise move or pressing projects. Be ready. Taking on important tasks and clients shows you’re a adaptable and a good investment. We don’t want clients or colleagues to take advantage of our enthusiasm. Take a moment to breathe and then remember the big picture: being open to surprises offers us a good chance to stand out and shine. When we help others through a tough spot, they may be more open when we need a boost or some help as well.
Offer Diplomatic Solutions
Being adaptable means we’re ready to be flexible when our recommendation or preferred solution doesn’t go over well. Diplomacy is a crucial skill for entrepreneurs in any line of business. Here being flexible and diplomatic involves preparing backup and several options for discussion.
Know why you made your first suggestion and be ready to explain why it works. Then be ready with a range of ideas. Multiple options and showing acceptance when your primary choice is rejected helps you come across as a professional who has the client’s best interest at stake. In pitching to a client, conveying alternate ideas and solutions can produce more business and deliver better results.

 

Keep your cool and confidence
You know what you’re doing. Remember, once you’re grounded in your why you can adapt to the conditions that come up. Your initial reaction to feedback, a dilemma or an unexpected event shows your adaptability. Show your best side by keeping your calm and remaining poised. This strong stance and confidence helps you make a smart decision when faced with a challenge. The ability to adapt in this way is especially important for entrepreneurs and leaders who set the tone for their new client and team. Confident leaders who show a balance of calm and adaptability tend to pass on these traits to others.
I believe we are passing on intelligent ideas for future entrepreneurs and leaders. We’re showing adaptability by introducing a fun and fresh perspective. Our ideas are grounded in business, but we enjoy the journey as well. Hope you do too! Use your adaptability as a force for good this week.
We welcome your comments
I am also able to grant a wish to someone who is a baseball fan, who loves the Cubs and could come to Chicago on their own. I’ll get tickets to a Cubs home game to watch the World Series Champs at Wrigley Field.
Thank you for your comments! We will grant the tickets to someone who leaves a comment below.
More news and pretty views coming soon.
Thanks for reading!

    Seriously, any business not yet on the social media is obviously still far from reaching its apex. That’s the 21st century way of doing business. Either you sell products or services, trust me, the social media is a gold land for you to explore.

    Hmm! I have being on the plan to start my fashion business soon, but I don’t really know why I’m starting such. Perhaps it’s just because I personally love to look good.
    But from what I have learnt from this post, I think I have to find more “why” of starting such business before I start up fully.
    Thanks for the post. Quite helpful..

    It took me quite some time before I finally faced it while starting my fashion house business. I will always want to satisfy my clients my own way and things weren’t working at all. Not until I finally learnt to be flexible enough to yield to their own new and creative ideas. I think I’m now a better person.

    A goal or idea remains dead until we are ready to take decisive action with them. It can be hard sometimes though, but it will always pay off at the end.
