Working Smart

By Lee Rossini

Nothing in life is static for long; change is always taking place around us in different forms and guises. Although we sometimes drive the changes ourselves, often they are imposed on us. New regulations, technologies, client demands, competitors; these are some of the reasons why a financial advice business must constantly update and re-engineer its strategies. While some business owners relish change, others fear and resent it. However, to be an effective business owner or manager, it is essential to recognise when change is desirable or at least inevitable although this does not necessarily mean that employees will feel the same way.
