Ten Questions Executive Leaders Should Ask Themselves

Today's business world is constantly changing with new ideas and technologies, and in order to remain competitive and effective, Executive Leaders should frequently assess their business. Here are 10 questions Executives can ask themselves to evaluate their organization:

1. Does my company have clear goals? Each business is unique with a specific set of goals. Make sure you are clear on your company's goals, both long-term and short-term. Having a firm endpoint provides direction for an organization.

2. What are my priorities? Sometimes it seems like organizations are always trying to keep up with day-to-day issues. Taking a little time to evaluate where the short-term issues are leading your business can help you prioritize and make adjustments to your organization.

3. Are my employees and I on the same page? Have information on policy and procedures readily available to your staff and review them when you have the time. Set the standard for professionalism and encourage your employees to follow it.

4. Do I have clear channels for communication? Make sure you have a reliable method for distributing information but also for receiving feedback. Communicate with your employees and your clients. Technology can help, but use it appropriately. Sometimes a personal touch makes all the difference.

5. Is this a communication problem or a policy problem? Sometimes when a manager has problems with employees, it's a communication issue. However, other times the problem is a symptom of a policy that does not work as intended. Actively solicit feedback from your employees to assess the right course of action.

6. Is my management style effective? Even with the best of intentions, a manager can be the cause of problems in his or her own company. Look at yourself and your management style. There may be some areas you would like to improve or new things you would like to try to help your company grow.

7. Is the work environment helping or hindering my employees? Sometimes simple adjustments can improve morale and production, but sometimes drastic changes—for example, firing an employee—are necessary to save an organization.

8. Am I taking advantage of all available resources? With today's abundance of information and opportunities for networking, Executive Leaders should always be aware of and take advantage of resources. Your employees can be a great resource if you allow them space for creativity.

9. Does my staff have adequate resources to do their jobs? Encourage your staff to let you know what they need, whether it's more collaboration or more paper clips. By giving them the tools to work more effectively, it shows that you value their contributions to the organization.

10. Am I up-to-date on the latest trends in my field? One of the most important aspects of business is keeping up with the competition. Being aware of changes and improvements in other businesses can help you make adjustments to your own organization to stay competitive and relevant.

It takes constant evaluation to keep a business running smoothly, and it's up to the Executive Manager to make those key evaluations. Asking questions and making adjustments can be vital to a company's success.
