HOW TO HANDLE YOUR BUSINESS, BEFORE IT HANDLES YOU.
Do you have a handle on your business? Executives often lack the time or focus to consistently develop, validate and personally oversee implementation of key initiatives. As a result, we turn to new ideas and processes to “handle” our businesses. There’s no shortage of new ideas around how to make our business grow. We don’t need more information. We need more application. This talk will give you the tools other leaders have applied to get a handle on their business, once and for all.
It’s a fact: you have a better chance of climbing Mt. Everest than staying in business for 10 years. Why? Many organizations don’t understand growth is a predictable journey. In difficult parts of the journey, it’s natural to focus on the issues directly in front of us instead of the predictable issues caused by growth.
