Changing of the Guard: The Unfortunate Side Effect of Growth – [PowerTips Unscripted] Ep.52

Changing of the Guard: The Unfortunate Side Effect of Growth – [PowerTips Unscripted] Ep.52

Most entrepreneurs want to build a bigger company, but understand that many of their existing processes don’t scale. You go back to the drawing board and make some changes. But the sad truth is that it’s not just systems, but people, who fall behind, dragging the business with them.

In this episode, Mark’s flying solo, and tackling a subject too many business owners try to avoid. The sad side effect of growth is that some of your best, longest-lasting employees simply can’t keep up with the new demands of a larger business.

The first thing to do is recognize it. If they’re still doing a great job, but lack enough time, hire more help. But if the tasks and duties themselves are overwhelming, you need an action plan. Mark talks about what to look for and how to handle it, including:

  • The difference between generalists and specialists
  • Continuing education and coaching
  • How to present the problem
  • Finding a new role — or not
  • When to cut your losses
  • And more…

If you’ve run into this sticky situation, tell us about your experiences in the comments — what did you do?

Opt Out

I confirm that I am choosing to opt-out of the new Roundtables membership, henceforth referred to simply as Roundtables (“Roundtables”).  

I understand that my current membership will not change and will be henceforth referred to as RT Legacy, Roundtables Legacy, or simply Legacy (“Legacy”). I understand that by opting out I will not receive the additional benefits offered to Roundtables membership and will not receive the bonus PSCs.  I acknowledge that if I choose to upgrade at a later date, I will not receive any bonus PSCs above the standard issue.

By clicking below, you opt out and will be locked into the Legacy program for 2021. You will not receive an increase in dues, other than our standard inflationary annual dues increases. You will have the opportunity to opt in for the 2022 membership year. However, there will be no bonus given to future opt in cycles.

Please note that if you cancel your membership, you forfeit access to Legacy membership in the future. You may rejoin only as a Roundtables member.
