I’m going to ask you to write something down, so reach for your pen and pad.
Here in Suffolk, I guess like your part of the world, we’re enjoying some really fantastic hot weather and the ground is suffering, becoming parched and brown.
Whilst out walking the dogs last night, I came across this plant standing vibrant green, resilient and apparently impervious to the arid soil around.
Now I’m no agriculturist so can’t give you a reason as to why it survives whilst all around wilt, but it did set me thinking about how nature had provided this species with the ability to, not only survive, but also flourish and herein my thoughts turn to my opening question.
Write down, what makes your business unique, what is its compelling value proposition and is it sustainable in your market?
More thoughts here..
How did you get on?
Have productive and thoughtful day.
About Michael Carr
Specialising in Strategy, Systems and Organisational Design
I've had a varied and rewarding career and been fortunate to work for some superb companies such as Courtaulds, Unipart International, Akzo Nobel and more recently Jaguar Landrover, all luminaries of a solid, disciplined and a conservative, though never lacking in innovation, approach to business management and development.
Augmenting my career with studying for my MBA at Warwick in the early 90's has given me a balanced and I believe rich resource set to draw upon in my Consultancy Practice.
My Clients have been good to me, tolerating my idiosyncrasies, giving me enough rope to go along the journey that I was taking them and hopefully in return I've been able to repay them by raising the bar and their business performance, giving them the results and achievements they were looking for.
I really enjoy my work and love the challenge - isn't that what it's all about?
