Consider Your Leadership Infrastructure
When you’re a small business and your entire staff is huddled around a coffee table at the local coffee shop, you’re agile and able to respond to things quickly. As you grow and move on to the next level, you need to begin to consider your leadership infrastructure. This is the ideal time to join a mastermind group or some sort of business-leader-to-business-leader mentorship program. The movement from small business to mid-sized is a much less organic experience, and must be more organized and deliberate.
A Final Word About Next Steps for Your Business
As you grow, remember you’re not alone. There are many community resources that can help, including your local chamber. Look for mastermind and executive mentor programs. If there aren’t any in your area, they’re easy enough to start. Create a Meet-up group or make connections through LinkedIn.
Whatever you decide to do, get off that nail. You’ll feel better immediately.
