Why do businesses plateau when they have the potential to achieve their ambitions?
What will ignite – or re-ignite – a company’s ambition? How do they get a renewed sense of purpose?
In a report commissioned by Avonglen, directors share their thoughts about the challenges they face, and how they are addressing them. Written in the language of the owner-manager, the report reflects their perspective and covers the challenges of professionalising the business, innovation, leadership, work-life balance, market consolidation, and attitudes to outside capital and the sale of the business.
The results were a reminder of just how tough business can be, and how important motivation, ambition and grit really are.
