In any business, the best answer to the biggest problem is usually right in front of us… but until the leader commits to conquering (instead of patching) the core issues, the company can’t advance to the next level.
No matter how well organized or successful a business is, there is always at least one major situation that ties up a huge amount of the leader’s energy and attention. More often than not, the biggest knots in a business result from one of two personnel issues:
- A key person, usually a loyal, long-term employee, needs to undergo a significant change (in their role, work style, or skill set) or leave the company entirely; or
- The entrepreneur or leader needs to change or evolve their role in the company.
Until this core knot is resolved, both the company and the people involved are handicapped in their performance. They can limp along for a while, but if the situation remains unresolved, momentum is lost and morale goes through the floor. Download
