10 Business Strategy Examples
A survey of nurse leaders nationwide identified the top challenges they currently face during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Of the more than 200 respondents, which included assistant managers, managers, directors, and chief nursing officers, 61% reported emotional and physical fatigue among themselves and their teams, 53% reported difficulty meeting work and family needs due to inadequate staffing, and 35% reported poor organizational communication, including across departments and from senior leaders down to mid-level leaders and staff.

"We're living through unprecedented challenges but what we're seeing is amplified versions of what our daily challenges have been for the last 20 or 30 years," says Lori Armstrong, DNP, RN, NEA-BC, CEO and chief clinical officer of Inspire Nurse Leaders, which conducted the survey.
As an aspiring entrepreneur, business owner, or working professional, you don’t need a lot. You don’t have to come from money or have a million dollars to build your business. That’s part of the hype that most people assume. What does matter is having the mindset to get started. So, start by asking yourself questions to lead to building a solid foundation. You are your foundation and it starts with you. 1. Who am I?

If you want to be successful, you must be willing to do the inner work and take a long, deep look inside to know yourself. You’re not what society or school told you who you were. You must look deeper than that. What do I like doing in my spare time? What are my core values?

Who do I want to work with? What am I trying to achieve? What are my personal goals? How am I going to change the world for the better?
A business strategy is a powerful tool for helping you reach your business goals, defining the strategies and tactics you need to take within your company. The business strategy also guides many of your organizational decisions, such as hiring new employees. Creating a business strategy that's in line with the vision you have for your company takes time and development. In this article, we will discuss what a business strategy is and why it's important, the components of a business strategy and 10 examples of business strategies to help you generate ideas for your own company.

What is business strategy?

A business strategy refers to the actions and decisions that a company takes to reach its business goals and be competitive in its industry. It defines what the business needs to do to reach its goals, which can help guide the decision-making process for hiring and resource allocation.
