“As a Managing Director, it would be nice to get some kind of a reference point on what I should be doing and how I should be doing it. I think I'm doing ok in the way I run the business but I don't have a way of really knowing."
“I was never trained to run a company and ours is now a fair size. I often wonder if I am missing tricks that would help me get more performance from all the resources we have here.”
“Benchmarking, business plans, performance reviews – I don’t need any of that stuff to tell me if I’m making money or not. I’ve always weathered the storms and managed to keep the business afloat.”
As businesses grow they pass through critical periods where the right decisions well implemented will promote further progress, but a failure to make those decisions or poor decisions or poor implementation will lead to a stall.
Successful owners create businesses that place them in a strong position to move forward. This requires systems and people you can trust and that free up your time. Your goal is to create a business that is efficient and automated to the point that it enables you to focus on the activities that move your business forward to a positive destination that is right for you.
