As a business owner or department head, you undoubtedly think you know about everything going on. And, for the most part, you probably have a pretty good handle on the important matters. But, do you know everything that you need to know? Probably not.
The best practice is to have an independent, third-party conduct an assessment to help you better understand where things stand.
- Your team members will say things to an independent third-party that they would be reluctant or hesitant to say to you.
- You’ll get confirmation on things you may suspect are issues and you’ll likely learn some new things.
Whether your business has suffered a downturn and reduced headcount or you’ve grown in recent months or years, it’s critical that you take some time to figure out where you stand.
Your team will really appreciate the opportunity to provide feedback. This is a great, first step in turbocharging your business execution as it helps identify the logical and critical next-steps. This will help you and your company thrive.
