Steve Jones on Show #49: Self-Motivation and Strategic Thinking

steve jones

Steve Jones initially worked with Fitness First, where he became a vital part of its quick expansion. When he began working with Shirlaws Business Coaching in 2002, he once again witnessed its fast growth in the U.K.

Today, Steve is the founder of Skills for Business Training Limited, a company that deals not only with the process-related app concerns of businesses, but also in the organisational challenges regarding its workforce.

Steve joins me today to explain the significance of thinking strategically in business and in motivating yourself to continue moving forward. He also shares how he helps business owners have the right mindset about leadership and management of their business, explains the rationale behind Shirlaws’ Red, Blue, Black (RBB) framework, and why he only has five items on his to-do list each day.

“Be clever about your thinking. Do not get dragged into your disappointments and self-criticism.” – Steve Jones
