Consultants, Mentors & Masterminds
Many large corporations have a board of directors consisting of experienced specialist who provide advice that enables a chief executive and his team to run the business more efficiently. Smaller businesses may not have the advantage of such a separate board of directors to advise and support the owner operator.
A small business can acquire the leadership and management advantages of larger corporations by assembling a team of specialist advisers who can mentor and guide the business towards high growth.
There are many experienced individuals who are very willing to share their knowledge with those new to a business. To benefit from the experience of knowledgeable individuals we must take the initiative to ask for advice and assistance.
A young manager joined a large corporation headed by a well-respected senior corporate leader. This leader was known as a person who did not indulge in casual conversation. The young manager was told by the staff that the corporate leader was too busy to have time for juniors. However, the young manager discovered that if he did his research on a task and stayed late at the office he was able to get a few minutes meeting time with the corporate leader.
By staying late regularly the young manager was able to meet the senior corporate leader and gain deep insight into how to lead a business. These brief late evening meets helped the young manager to fast track his knowledge growth. This gave him the confidence to venture out with his own business picking up clients the large corporation would not normally take on.
