Coaching Leadership Quotes on Timing

Cultivating a sense of timing is paramount in business. Our ability to observe and interpret the world around us can often atrophy. By developing an acute awareness of events in the outside world and your immediate proximity, your ability to perfect timing as a sales tool is important for business survival.

It is often easy to ignore events that may have an impact on you, your company, or your clients. Make a point of asking questions; how quickly is the change approaching? How quickly could it occur? How far in the future? What will be the direct effects of those involved in the event? How can I best plan for the event and manage the potential outcomes positively?

Developing a sense of timing is a learned attribute. Awareness and preparation go hand in hand when confronting events that will impact us within our businesses. Using timing to be prepared and a good measure of contingency planning not only verifies opportunities, it also reduces the potential threats which could impact us. By cultivating a sense of timing, each of us are better equipped to manage personal daily obligations. Knowing our direction in business and a sense of timing defines personal leadership for those with which we have contact, including ourselves.
