Do you have what it takes to successfully create a fast-growing organization?
Take out a pen and draw three horizontal scales from 1 to 7. Resisting the temptation to go easy on yourself, rate yourself on the following questions (1=low, 7=high):
1) How well do I truly learn from mistakes by changing my beliefs, decision-making and actions?
2) To what extent do I surround myself with - not "good", not "very good" - great people?
3) How persistent am I in strategizing, taking action and making adjustments to achieve results?
These are the three attributes common to CEOs on the Inc. 500 list of fastest growing companies. If your total score is less than 18, then hold a meeting in the mirror and ask, "How do I need to change to help my organization grow?"
