Alan Weiss’s Monday Morning Memo® – 02/28/11

February 28, 2011—Issue #76

This week’s focus point: General Motors may soon regain the title of the world’s largest auto company. Who would have thought that two years ago? Very few clients are so hopelessly lost or so untouchably in the lead that their positions can’t change with new leadership, new ideas, or new circumstances. Sometimes gradual change is sufficient, sometimes trauma is necessary, but never give up if you feel there is hope. And never give up on yourself no matter what you experience or are told. We are resilient creatures.

Monday Morning Perspective: The man who is neither bent upon pleasing his fellows nor afraid of offending them will enjoy great peace. — Thomas a Kempis

I remember a meeting with a boutique consulting firm that had fallen on hard times. The debate was whether or not to sell their magnificent conference table. “Where would clients sit?” asked one partner. “We have no clients,” stated the advocate of selling. You can’t cut your way to renewal or success. Top line growth is the key to bottom line achievement, for you and for your clients. Today is the time to invest in the future. Once you cut muscle, you’re powerless.
