We compiled the top articles for business resolutions in 2017 and we’re excited to share them with you! The resolutions in this article reveal what executives, entrepreneurs, and business leaders from around the world have decided to do (or be) in 2017. First, though, take one minute to look at the five most common resolutions from the lists below. We analyzed the lists below and found that the five most common resolutions among business leaders in 2017 are as such.
The Top 5 New Year’s Resolutions
1. Delegate more. You can set up a tracking board in your office that’s visible to everyone, post your values on the wall, or put work assignments on a physical surface so everyone knows what to do. This will encourage delegation and teamwork.
2. Give more. Collaborating with other companies is a great way to build your business, and business leaders are focusing on this strategy for 2017. We live this ethos in our own way here in Nashville, but there’s many varieties of this mentality. Whatever the case, resolve to work for the success of your clients no matter what it takes. If it’s a good partnership, when they win, you win, too.
3. Build up your staff. Leaders are improving their work environment to make it a happier place. You can do this, for example, with graphics in the office. Give your staff freedom to personalize their workspace. Then, you can do that to your space as well. This makes your space look and feel warmer for your staff. Plus, give your staff a pat on the back every now and then – everyone needs a little encouragement!
4. Do something new. If you want to grow as a business, you need to stretch yourself and your company. Try something new this year, add a new product, or implement a new system – whatever it is, put yourself out there and grow. Step out of your comfort zone and do what it takes to get attention. Perhaps your innovation will light up the night or even draw the crowds with cutting edge products like our LumaMedia car wraps.
5. Focus on marketing. Business leaders in 2017 know they need excellent marketing to grow. Make marketing part of your New Year’s resolution. Remember that if your business owns physical assets, you need physical signs. This lets customers know about your business — where it’s located, what it looks like, and what your brand is. Most importantly, having a sign isn’t only a need — it’s an opportunity for branding and cultivating brand loyalty among potential customers and clients.

“Although I never make New Year’s Resolutions, we had a lively debate at a recent family dinner party about the targets that I could pick. My grandchildren had plenty of suggestions for me, which included taking every Friday off, going on more holidays, picking up litter, finally starting the novel that I keep promising to write, and the usual ones of doing more exercise and losing weight.
But it was my daughter-in-law who got the conversation going when she suggested that everyone should resolve to show more kindness, especially in business. … So my tip for 2017 is to show kindness, not just so that you can sit on the moral high ground, but also because nice guys win in the end.”
