All organizations — be they small businesses, nonprofits or large corporations — are apt to acquire different needs as they grow and evolve. But how can we, as the leaders of these organizations, respond to those changes?
We’ve talked about the three pillars that are meant to support business growth and all the needs that come along with that growth, and by now, you should be familiar with the first two: first, you assess the current state of your business or executive team to determine the specific issues or goals you’d like to address. Then, you design a comprehensive solution tailored to the variables that make your business unique.

Designate any necessary deadlines, and stick to them.
