GOD loves His creation. We have all been put here for a reason, namely GOD’s purpose. Meeting His people to solve problems is part of the GOD-centered business owner’s day. Listening to feedback is also part of a great product or service. What strangers will you encounter to provide feedback to you? Your customers are never an inconvenience. Give them your best. Serve them well. Look for the best solutions and trust GOD to deliver. Have you ever met a person who made you and everyone around you smile when they walked in the room? How about a person who helped you simply because you were you? God loves His people, especially you! You were made for Him and He made you to work with other people. Jeremiah 30:22 - [i]‘You shall be My people, And I will be your God.’ ”[/i] (NKJV) [size=2][font=Georgia, serif]As you can see, GOD wants to be GOD to HIS people. HE wants you to be there for HIS people.[/font][/size] [i]List people and the specific feedback you are looking for. This will refine the vision and help you get a better grip on the problem. Use the STEP process to think of who you will get feedback [color=#111111][size=3][font=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]on your product or service[/font][/size][/color].[/i] [b][size=3]STEP Process for Feedback[/size][/b] [b][size=3]S[/size][/b][size=3] is for [b]S[/b][/size][b]trangers[/b] who tend to give the most honest feedback, because they have no emotional ties to you or your business. [b][size=3]T[/size][/b][size=3] is for [b]T[/b][/size][b]hought[/b] [b]leaders[/b] in your industry who can broaden your perspective. [b][size=3]E[/size][/b][size=3] is for [b]E[/b][/size][b]motional[/b] review which comes from family and friends. Their feedback enables them to be involved. [b][size=3]P[/size][/b][size=3] is for [b]P[/b][/size][b]rofessional[/b] validation such as content editors, compliance groups, and regulatory agencies. Refer to the “Remove the Trash” chapter if you are reluctant to have people review your work. This chapter deals with removing barriers to achieving true success. I will discuss this in depth later. We did this exercise of identifying people for feedback before when we identified reviewers of our work. This time we are using the STEP method. Remember, the GOD-Centered Business is a framework from which you will, listen to GOD, listen to people and build your business ideas into features of your business you will sell and operate. If you run out of room, use a spreadsheet on your computer to log feedback. Keep in mind that regulatory agencies may require a specific method of providing feedback. Feel free to invite these people to attend your community. Your visioning is almost complete.
