Companies often talk about wanting scalable and sustainable growth.
They try to do things that create that. How many times have you said to someone in your company, “That’s a neat idea, but how can we scale it? Is it sustainable?” Too many to count, right?
But how often do you ask, “Why can’t we scale that idea if it’s good?.”
Leaders are often blind when it comes to the critical flaws in their companies that prevent scaling. Often, it’s not the idea that’s unscalable; it’s that the organization is unwilling or unable to adapt to make it scale. In reality, companies that have blind spots tend to prevent growth and peak performance in a scalable and sustainable way.
