Are you a Business Leader or your own Employee?
Updated: Feb 27
Many business leaders enter the business world working for or with someone else. They're wearing many business hats, covering a multitude of sins.
In short, they have a job.
There's nothing wrong with this. In fact, in our estimation it's a good thing.
We believe no experience is ever wasted. Indeed, between members of Hodges and Wall, we can show we live the advice. Aside from our current professional lives, we have been an IT nerd, a marketing executive and a policeman.
Every job is different, but they often have a familiar beat and plenty of structure. If you have come to be a business leader through this route you may well have elected to continue some of this routine. This is likely to be the case if you work within a team or have colleagues who you expect to arrive for work on time.
However, our belief is that a business leader needs to concentrate on giving the organisation:
A winning vision and
Build a team to deliver the vision.
Feeling obligated to be in the office during the working day is not always conducive to that priority.
So, before heading to the next routine meeting ask critically,
"Will this meeting improve the quality of the vision?"
Any answer other than a "100% Yes" should cause an immediate change to tomorrow's activities.
We help business owners create an organisation that runs smoothly, giving them time to focus on strategy.
