Roadblocks to corporate growth don’t just “happen.” They’re a natural part of the process. All the vision and determination in the world can’t prevent them. If you aren’t properly prepared, these barriers will slow corporate growth or bring it to a screeching halt altogether. They could even take your entire enterprise down the tubes.
Fortunately, these barriers are predictable and not at all insurmountable, when you know what to look for and how to focus on proper execution of the right plan.
In his new book, Great to Excellent; It's the Execution! – Overcoming the Natural Barriers to Profitable Company Growth, Jim Alampi, coach to CEOs, executive teams and Boards of Directors, spells out specifically how to spot each major hurdle long before it approaches and the steps you need to take now, to leap each natural barrier you reach.
“Jim has enabled us to see our current way of doing things and has taken us through The Execution Maximizer® process of discovery as a company. We are now developing a more proactive approach to our strategic opportunities and getting ahead of the challenges we face. Jim makes us think about our traditional business in new ways that has allowed us to modernize our company. Jim's approach is straightforward and fits well with our entrepreneurial mindset at Sanimax. As a seasoned business leader Jim has brought us a perfect blend of corporate leadership and entrepreneurial spirit.” -- Tony Galasso, President and COO of Sanimax Industries.
“Our firm has had a hockey stick growth curve for the past four years and as a result we outgrew a number of the processes and methods that had gotten us to where we are. Jim is helping us change that by introducing us to the strategies that he has spent years proving out as a CEO and advisor in businesses in many industries. Our team consists of some very talented individuals who have now committed to a handful of initiatives we all agree are our top priorities. Our organization has engaged Jim in an ongoing role to keep us on track and help us achieve our objectives.”-- Chris Simchick, Principal Partner, SDLC Partners L.P.
“I would recommend Jim Alampi to any business owner who plans to stay in business. His practical, logical and systematic approach to running a business is invaluable. Jim has been instrumental in successfully moving us from one stage of growth to another. As a CEO, it's lonely at the top! You need to have a 3rd party, professional person in your corner. I wouldn't go back to running my company without the help of Jim Alampi.”-- Crystal Halley, Owner & CEO, RE/MAX 100.
