I recently joined a few podcasts to discuss a common challenge for many small business owners, getting stuck. Many people mistakenly think that only failing businesses are stuck. So I'm launching a new series of short articles to explain how successful companies get stuck.
Please read the following statements about your work and identify all that describe you.
Each of these statements is a symptom of being stuck due to role and responsibilities misalignment. Here is why.
As a business owner, there is absolutely no doubt that the buck stops with you. The diverse demands require you to wear many hats, especially in the early years of building the business. As time passes, the default organizing principle is to place you in the center of everything. Thus, the demands for your time and attention follows the expansion of task complexity and volume. Without intervention, this becomes a self-replicating cycle.
In every business, the moment arrives to progress beyond the frenzy of the start-up culture. Achieving a sustainable equilibrium requires the organization of roles and responsibilities into formal positions. Teamwork evolves from all-hands-on-deck crisis mode to high performance achieved through the systemic design of communication and process flows. This shift only occurs through focused intention and design.
