prepare your training business for the new year

2019 is almost upon us, and December is a crucial month to reflect on what went well for your training business in the past 12 months and prepare for the new year. Taking the time to lay out and define your goals for the upcoming year, and putting together a comprehensive action plan, has the potential to supercharge your business so when the clocks strikes twelve on January 1st, you feel ready and raring to go.

So, where to start?

Reflect on 2018

Much like Mr. Scrooge in A Christmas Carol, before you can move forwards it is essential to look back. It may be tempting to forge onwards with new goals and new plans right off the bat, but if you don’t reflect on what went well and what didn’t go well for your training business, it’s entirely possible you’ll end up stumbling on the very same hurdles in 2019.

If you set goals for your business at the end of 2017, where are you in relation to them now? Did you reach them, fall short, or abandon them entirely? How has your business changed over the last year? Are your priorities still the same?

By reflecting in this way, you can begin to form an idea of what your priorities are now, and begin forming a comprehensive roadmap for the twelve months ahead.


Set Goals

Every training business will have different goals dependent on a number of factors, but if you have reflected thoroughly on the past year, you should now have an idea of where you want to take your organisation in 2019.

That’s where goal setting comes in.

Goals are the foundation on which you build your business, so it’s extremely important that they are SMART. That’s: specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and timebound.

‘I want to make more money in 2019’ is not a SMART goal. Vague and undefined, it does not give you a target to work towards – monetary or time related.

‘I want to turn over 35% more profit than last year by the end of Q3 2019’ is a SMART goal.

Set yourself four or five goals for the upcoming year. Once you have those in place, you can start to form a plan on how you are going to achieve them in the allotted time.


Get Organised

The old saying goes: “Fail to prepare, prepare to fail” and a large part of getting ready for success in 2019 is making sure you’re organised.

Take some time to check that your training and health and safety certificates are up-to-date, and you are remaining compliant with all the legislation relevant to your training business.

This will ensure you start off on the right foot when 2019 comes around. Not only this but be sure to diarise any important dates. Put them into your calendar and set alarms for a few days before so you’re not caught short at the last minute.


Refresh Your Environment

An organised and clean training environment can energise you, your staff, and your learners. Whether you deliver online training or location-based, it’s time to give your surroundings a spring clean.

If you have a physical space, it’s important to make sure it is organised and clean. That way, when you return after the holidays, everyone is able to focus on their goals (including you!). If you deliver training via a website or other online client, could it do with a spring clean? Get rid of adverts for courses you no longer deliver, or that are fully booked and ensure you have all of the literature prepared for upcoming courses. This will make sure you hit the ground running on your return.

Finally, make sure your e-mail inboxes are decluttered and organised. Having a robust system in place will stand you in good stead for when courses resume in the new year. Especially if you’re bound to be inundated with e-mails from learners and staff on day one back in the office!


Ask for Testimonials

Nothing speaks louder about your training business than testimonials from ex-learners. As people start to wind down for the holidays, now is the time to reach out to them and ask for a recommendation, or a few words on their experience with your organisation.

Put together a survey or list of questions that can be sent out to customers via e-mail. Think about what parts of your training business you’d like them to highlight (e.g. value for money, efficiency, effectiveness, progression opportunities).

You can then use the completed questionnaires across the whole business as a way of enticing new learners to enrol on your courses.

So there you go, 5 ways to prepare your training business for 2019. Sure, it’s important to take the opportunity to enjoy any downtime you may get around this time of year but resting on your laurels won’t get things done in the long run.

Quiet reflection and time to define your goals for the upcoming year are absolutely essential to getting ahead, and making sure you’re organised will make sure your best foot is going forward as we enter the new year.
