Growing a business
Most business owners are very keen to see their enterprise expand and develop, but rapid growth brings its own special challenges. Some businesses falter at this stage while others forge on ahead. The difference is often a matter of leadership, strategy and how key roles are assigned.
Effective leadership is crucial for a thriving business. There must always be a clear strategy for the nature and direction of the company. Owners and directors who chase every opportunity can quickly find themselves getting bogged down under the pressures of fire-fighting and an ever-mounting to-do list. By contrast, those who most often fare best are those who take the time to keep a close eye on their markets, their customers and the competition.
It’s impossible to over-stress the importance of having the time to think, to plan and to lead. That’s why, at Jones Harris, we never put restrictions on the availability of our directors. If you’re a customer and you’re facing a challenge, we’ll always be there to talk strategy, solutions and common sense.
