Is This Your #1 Business Challenge Too?

This Your #1 Business Challenge Too?
Tip: Business management is developing managers. You've got to grow them...so you can grow!


          Duration: 6 mins. 25 secs.

I had a great family get together in Indiana this weekend after speaking at the Energetic Women's Leadership Conference in Indianapolis. (The conference was a gathering of women from all over the US who are in the Energy industry - primarily gas & electric).

One of the many highlights was getting the latest updates from my stepson Chris regarding the state of their business in 2019 (we have 4 business owners in our immediate family!). They are exceeding goals! I was so happy to hear!


"So, what are your current challenges, what do you want to be different?", I asked. His answer, "Building middle management." Their business is family owned and operated with very aggressive growth goals. They need an effective, competent second tier leadership/management team if they want that to happen.


So we talked through some of his efforts and in several aspects he has some great things in place. For example, they have scorecards to keep everyone focused on the metrics that matter. They are very sensitive about company culture. They certainly do a lot of fun things together.


The one thing he really was stalled on was building a management team that could replace him so he could be free to develop the best, most market responsive strategies to grow the business overall.


So I shared with him my newly formed Executive Advantage Blueprint for Smart Management. I walked through each "smart management" building block - some of which, to varying degrees, he had in place.


What was missing is what most leaders miss...see if any of this applies to you:

How to Determine When It's Time to Fire Someone




Take a 10-minute breather today and learn how to determine when it's time to fire someone.

Want to be clear & confident? Firing an employee is one of the most significant challenges and the toughest things to do in leading and managing.

Yet, sometimes, it's absolutely necessary...and not doing so can severely hurt your business. Do you have a firing philosophy? Do you experience "fog" when you're trying to determine whether to do so or not?

I'm sooo excited to start a new series called "Coffee Talk"; the purpose of which is to encourage busy founders, entrepreneurs and/or their senior leaders to take just a few moments (take a "management moment") to learn something that will help them improve how they manage their business.

Our Goal: Help leaders manage their business better, so their business doesn't manage them. :-)
