Problems rarely go away on their own so you can deal with it now or once it gets out of control. The members of my Renaissance Executive Forums CEO Peer Advisory Groups know the phrase
“Concrete is easy to move when it’s wet; once it hardens you’ll need a jackhammer.”
The idea is that you should deal with issues in the early stages of your business so you end up with the company that matches your vision and purpose. Something that would require a simple tweak or adjustment at the beginning will grow as your team grows, and can become a culture and business model that will take a lot of hard work to fix.
You may have achieved a significant level of success in the growth of your business but now you look back and see that the people who are leading your team are not the people you would hire today. “Sales covers a multitude of sins” and when things are great you never stopped to look at the structure of the business or team you were building. Who had time for that? You were too busy taking orders and trying to keep up with the demand. Now you are trying to take the business to the next level and your team is just not prepared to scale and sustain. Now what?
‘The best time to plant is tree is 20 years ago, the second best time is now.”
It’s not too late but you will need help. That is one of the reasons our group members meet each month to make sure they are building the company and team they really want; not just the one they end up with. Our CEO Peer Group members are being proactive to learn from the experience of others to avoid problems, and to get the support we all need to be the best leaders we can be.
