Congratulations! You’re in the enviable position to which all entrepreneurs aspire. Sales are up, you need to hire people, life is good. But of course there are key elements to effectively manage this growth.
“Knowing what needs to change and what you yourself need to stop doing is critical to your ongoing success!” In his book, “What Got You Here Won’t Get You There“, Marshall Goldsmith discusses the need to learn and adopt new skill sets even as you are achieving success. You wouldn’t expect to be doing the same work if you received a promotion in another job. In the same way, the demands of your growing business have just promoted you out of your smaller business and the job has changed. Managing more ….. more production, more customers, more supply chain, more employees is very different from your previous role. Knowing what needs to change and what you yourself need to stop doing is critical to your ongoing success!
