Q&A: Handling Setbacks and Growing Through The Pain

Question: What if my business is continuously plagued with issues?

Life is a series of experiences, each one of which makes us bigger, even though sometimes it is hard to realize this. For the world was built to develop character, and we must learn that the setbacks and grieves which we endure help us in our marching onward. – Henry Ford

1. Address The Problem Head On

The first step is to acknowledge there is a problem, or potential problem — looming or present — that is holding your company back from reaching its full potential.

2. Identify The Symptoms To Find The Root Cause

Symptoms in business, like symptoms in your body, can be analyzed. When you identify the symptoms, you’ll start seeing commonalities amongst them.

3. Research

Once you have isolated the problem, look for solutions adopted within your industry. Alternatively, look into other industries that have found solutions to a similar problem. You may find a system which allows you to operate more efficiently.

4. List Your Rocks And Milestones

After finding the solution, set three month, six month, and one year goals.

5. Communicate Your Goals To Your Team And Start

Now that you have a clear vision, communicate this vision with your team. Share your research and stress that each person is a vital piece to reaching those goals.
