As a business owner, you are likely creative, hard-working, and quick on your feet. These skills and talents are great for launching a business, but more is needed for sustained success. Your business is yours to grow, and you likely need new skills to do that.
EXPERT TIP | Gary Furr, Organizational Development Consultant:
The talents and skills you had when you started your business are not the same talents and skills that will get you from where you are to where you want to be. You have to develop your skills and knowledge in order in order to help your businesses grow. It’s necessary to think more strategically and long term. The key is to see the bigger picture and then proactively develop the skill sets critical to sustained growth.
Accountability is one great tool for making strides in growing your business. Just like we often need an accountability partner for the gym, it can be helpful in our efforts for business growth. Others can often see what we don’t. Their insight can be vital to helping us see new ways toward growth.
