How To Move Your Company Forward

In Eric Jacobson On Leadership, Inc. Magazine, Leadership, Leadership Education, Leadership Skills on May 27, 2016 at 5:23 am

The April 2014 issue of Inc. magazine featured a fascinating list of 35 questions from business owners, entrepreneurs and management thinkers. Each offered the one question they would ask to move a company forward.

From the list, my favorites are:

  • Are we relevant?  Will we be relevant five years from now? Ten?
  • What prevents me from making the changes I know will make me a more effective leader?
  • Are we changing as fast as the world around us?
  • Who, on the executive team or the board, has spoken to a customer recently?

And, my most favorite is:

  • How can we become the company that would put us out of business?

What question do you ask to help move your company forward?
