Too often, companies die unnecessarily. Why? Because most managers haven’t learned to recognize the symptoms of oncoming illness in their business. And when symptoms do start occurring, management doesn’t know how to manage in this situation. They haven’t had to in the past, and they are ill equipped when trouble sets in.
The obvious signs of business trouble are rarely its root causes. Losing money, for example, isn’t the problem. Rather, losing money is the result of other problems.
When you wait too long to recognize deteriorating characteristics, the company will probably seek bankruptcy protection, and only creditors, attorneys, and outside accountants benefit from this process. It’s the astute manager who recognizes fallibility and has the foresight to ask for help…before serious trouble sets in.
Corporate managers, directors, and financial professionals, you share in the business risks of the companies you serve. You accept additional risk when the company is heading for trouble. By recognizing some early-warning signs of business trouble on the horizon, you can eliminate, overcome, or, at the very least, sidestep those risks.
If you can answer yes to some of these questions, it’s time to take decisive action.
Is the owner or top management overextended?
Whose work are they doing? When they continue to perform functions that should be done by others (once the business has grown to a more complex level), they’re overextended.
- A simple self-analysis of how we would be sufficient to have a good starting point. The current executive must constantly ask:
- If you can properly interpret the information they provide.
- If you recognize and understand exactly what the company wants it.
- If the targets are being set that is really fulfilling.
- If the worker is sufficiently skilled to handle new technologies, mobile phones, for example.
- If you have the ability to communicate in different languages.
- If you have sufficient expertise to manage their daily administrative operations and cognitive.
- In conclusion, to see if it really is growing and / or solve their jobs because their skills, knowledge, skills, aptitudes and attitudes.
Taking the time
Similarly, the company must learn to take time to conglomerate their teams, and depending on the level, “realign the objectives, build a vision together, honestly analyzed to know the real diagnosis and as correctly cited Roger Kaufman, keep in mind to “we want to go and what it takes to achieve what you’re pretending.”
It seems so simple, but sometimes the great leaders or executives are away or are beyond this analysis and guidance, which may seem very simple. The truth is that it could get great results.
The responsibility for administrative management is therefore not exclusive responsibility of the executive itself, but also the organization as an entity that learns to learn as an interrelated system.
The speed with which they react to signals and trust business to grow as a team, providing security and new challenges to managers will be key to have a greater capacity for business success.
When a person is embedded in a company, it is likely that the dynamics of labor, the daily operation, interrelationships in the organization or type of business, to name a few factors, it loses the ability to surprise and even to realize that something may be coming to affect our participation, performance and management for the institution, and vice versa.
Each person is a unique and unrepeatable, but lack the time in any company to remind us that the organization does not necessarily depend on us, so if given the suspension of our services, the operation of the organization would continue, sometimes with more or less stumbling, but ultimately not necessarily require a particular executive.
While it is true that we do our own business and that when one negotiates or associated with another company, actually we’re doing with people, it is also true that the cold business practice that often “the interests of companies outweigh the people …. ”
It should be noted, then, among other things, that the executive need to be attentive of the “business signs” yes, those little details that make an employee no matter where you not only keep his job, but moving forward with its plan life career projection.
Similarly, business signs should not be considered exclusive indicators of workers, but also the companies themselves. Just a question of reinventing itself daily and avoid that fate alone drive the direction of the organization.
After all, it is aware that an executive at any level must correspond to real value of compensation received by the company, but at the same time as the company interpreted this effort as something tangible, worthy of being sustained and used for the growth of both parties. This simple logic implies that the objectives of both parties must be “aligned.”

# Leadership is the advantage a person or a few individuals in the group, in the process of controlling the symptoms of social
# Brown (1936) argues that leaders can not be separated from the group, but may be viewed as a position with high potential in the field.

The companies that apply the various theories of management and operations such as Total Quality Management, empowerment, and coaching with the hope that this new method will solve their problems.
