The toughest business to consult with is your own business. Why?
- You have limited perspective beyond the easy issues
- Your team is often stuck in “this is how we do it here” mentality
- It’s too easy to “breathe your own exhaust” as my mentor, Alan Weiss, says
- Change is often seen as daunting even if it isn’t
Would you be surprised to learn that I have many experts who help me with my business? It’s critical to my business that I have people I trust to act as a sounding board and call me on issues that need to be addressed.
The higher you are in an organization, the greater the need for an independent expert.
Get the help you need today.
