This week’s focus point: Organizations which are in terrible shape have usually been victimized by a series of poor decisions by management. There is no reason to believe that they will suddenly see the error of their ways, hire you, and adhere closely to your advice. Instead, they will be protective, defensive, and miserly. But organizations in great shape have leaders who make intelligent choices, are willing to listen to new ideas, and have money to invest. Which would you think are higher potential for your business? Don’t be fooled by the decades-old advice to find or create “pain.” Instead, find strong people for whom you can create growth, innovation, and excitement. They are your top prospects.
