I am in Miami, Florida, meeting with my Global Growth Circle peers including Chad Barr, Guido Quelle, Suzanne Bates, Bart Sayle, Steven Gaffney and facilitated by Alan Weiss. Our group includes people from Britain, Germany, United States and Canada.
We get together semi-annually to help each other on business and personal development because, well, we can’t consult to ourselves. In other words, we practice what we preach and regularly seek feedback, guidance, and tough love from our respected and successful peers.
I asked the group, who consult with companies ranging from privately-held small businesses to Fortune 500 and global, multi-national companies, about the major growth challenges that they see facing small and medium enterprises, or SMEs, around the world.
Business Growth Challenges
The major business challenges (and opportunities) to grow your business are: customers, cash and culture.
Our group identified these specific challenges affecting privately-held, small businesses and mid-size firms:
- Cash flow and business funding to support company growth.
- Developing a wealth mindset so that the business becomes an investment that increases in value.
- Maximizing the return on investments in people, processes, and plans.
- Segmenting customers so that you provide the most value to the most profitable customers.
- Developing marketing strategies to increase sales with your ideal customers.
- Leveraging your unique business culture to attract and retain the best talent.
- Providing viable careers to build your management team and increase organizational capacity.
- Proactively dealing with family dynamics to strengthen family relationships and workplace culture.
- Taking calculated risks that increase revenues while minimizing the downside of those risks.
- Creating more wealth and more free time for business owners.
What business growth strategies can you implement to enhance your customers, your cash and your culture?
