I love the title of Marshall Goldsmith’s book: What Got You Here Won’t Get You There. And that’s the case with companies wanting to go to the next level.
A traditional company handing over to professionals… A local company going national… A national company going global… What got you here won’t get you there.
To go to the next level, you need a change in at least 2 areas. For simplicity, I will label them the BE and the DO.
The BE is the mindset, the way of thinking of the organization starting from the owner. The DO is the strategies or systems, the things that need to get done in order for you to achieve your goals.
For this post, I will focus on a traditional company is typically highly dependent on a capable owner. In fact, many of the decisions are still kept at owner level, because typically only the owner knows the vision, the goals, the financial data, and the best way things are done.
Eventually, the owner gets tired and wants to hand over the company to a team of managers. What’s the BE & DO that needs to change?
Clearly there is a lot to be done to get to the next level. And I hope you know why it’s worthwhile for you to go through with all this. Having a clear destination before starting the process will help you sustain your motivation and get through the challenges along the way.
Here’s the full formula of success… BE x DO = HAVE.
Get clarity on what you want to HAVE and why that is important. Create the list of DO that you need to implement in order to make it happen. And most importantly, decide on a list of BE that needs to change to ensure a smoother and easier journey.
Make it a good day.
