When You Can’t Seem to Move Beyond “Business as Usual”


It has become apparent to just about everyone in your midsized family business that your customers want/need/expect you to utilize faster more customer-centered technology.  You may even know what hardware, software, and training will be needed.  But, where will you ever come up with all of the money that would be needed?  It’s difficult enough to handle what you are already doing, so the technology upgrade project gets put on the back burner and things keeps going …business as usual.

Sound familiar?

Chances are very good that technology isn’t your causal problem.

An inability to face the need to dramatically upgrade technology (or take on other similar strategic initiatives) is a symptom of poor communication, lack of accountability, and/or incomplete leadership development.

Think back about the last time your family business tried to do real strategic growth planning.  If your team couldn’t remain optimistic, constructive, and future-oriented, you might want to first bring in outside assistance to strengthen your executive communication, accountability, and leadership development.
