A page turner!,
This review is from: Flat Spot : Discover the Seven Mistakes Entrepreneurs Make That Put the Brakes on Growth (Kindle Edition)
This concise little book gets entrepreneurs to think about their business using the analogy of Formula 1 racing and takes the reader through the benefits of taking a pit stop to look more closely at how things are running. Each chapter has a key question section that gets you to consider new ways of looking at staff performance, getting staff buy in, and improving staff morale. It looks at the dangers of endless cost cutting and target setting without investment in staff development and training. But Gavin is also clear that the wrong staff in the job can be the biggest threat to a company's growth. Getting the right balance is key. He also shows how many businesses fail to focus on the bigger "why", and their ultimate legacy which leaves staff unclear of the company's ultimate objective. He reinforces the need for collaboration with "competitors" rather than hard nosed competition for the sake of it. A thought-provoking book that gives the reader an insightful look at the hurdles affecting growth and action points that will get the right outcomes.
