The closing of March brings to light things I’m most passionate about – speaking up and calling things out for what they are with the goal of improvement. Which is why I am thrilled about the theory discussed below, and its importance in the realms of both business and life. Additionally, the month of March shines the light on women – celebrating them, supporting them, and leveraging their many talents to aid our community.
Speaking up – that’s a big one. Is your inner dialogue speaking up when something’s off? And are you providing an environment for your people to approach you with solutions that contribute to your organization? As a leader, are you grounded enough to know when things are out of alignment, whether personally or as you lead your business? And taking it one step further, are you willing to do what it takes to Dx the so-called broken windows, the seemingly small issues that can mark the beginning of much more costly ones? The broken windows concept, discussed in length by one of my favorite authors, Malcolm Gladwell, expresses in the below read the need for businesses to deal with their smaller problems immediately to prevent them from spreading into something worse. If this is the sort of topic you would like to dig into and further address with process to improve your situation, do reach out!
We’re committed to doing our part in improving conditions for our female business owners, employees, and friends. And with the last couple of pandemic years disproportionately impacting women, it is crucial that now more than ever, we encourage and embrace the creativity that women bring to growing companies. Let us know if you would beneDt from talking through how to grow your teams, and in the meantime, check out the resources below we hope will get a dialogue going in support of women.
