Are you hitting the ceiling? Either you are, you have, or you will; hitting the ceiling is inevitable. Hitting the ceiling is that feeling of being stuck, feeling frustrated, feeling as though there is not enough time in the day.
From processes to personnel, there are a number of places where entrepreneurs and business owners can effect immediate and meaningful change in business performance. My experience in nearly two decades of working with hundreds of business owners and leadership teams from a broad variety of industries is that most are frustrated by one or more of the following issues: lack of control, personnel concerns, profit worries, lack of growth, and strategic burn-out from previous strategies and unsuccessful quick-fix remedies.
For the last ten years, I’ve been pushing clients to apply a discipline that is scary to most – and rightfully so. I now have enough clients doing it that I’m comfortable sharing it, as it’s no longer simply theory. The discipline is listing all of your clients from the most profitable to the least, and then cleaning up the bottom 10 percent.
One of the surest ways to break through the ceiling and get to where you want to go is to delegate and elevate yourself to your God-given unique abilities.
