Sustainable growth is planned, disciplined, well thought through, tested, it is a whole of business, whole team effort. The business owner is the designer, architect and key driver. Yet most businesses who say they want to grow haven’t even set themselves up for growth.
Most businesses don’t even have the basics in place to drive profitability, cash-flow and performance. People they employ are still just a set of skills to get stuff done. Engagement is low and performance is sub standard. Marketing strategy is outdated and sales happen by accident.
Setting things up right is the key.
Accelerated sustainable growth, building a high performance team and business is by design. Not by chance, by accident or simply by hoping something will happen. A token effort, a random 2 day planning event or a superficial marketing effort gets a fleeting result at best.
Do you have a strategic thinking, planning and execution framework in your business designed to drive profitable growth? Do you really want business growth or are you simply business as usual hoping something will change…someday?
It’s a conscious decision. Design a great business, build a great team and grow. It’s a discipline not an event. Set your business up right for growth.
