Breaking the Barriers to Business Growth

January 27, 2009: Prafulla Pande will conduct an interactive workshop, providing practical approaches to overcoming typical barriers experienced by small and mid-sized firms.

An Interactive Workshop on How to Deal With Barriers That Hold Your Business Back


Offered by Prafulla Pande & Veer Khare

You said good bye to 2008 but did you say HELLO to 2009 with optimism? We know what you were up against in 2008. We also know that there is a shadow of worry and fear for 2009. But a new year does not have to start with fear and worry.

Businesses are like human beings. They are born, they grow, they live, and eventually die. Some die sooner than others. Some grow and get stuck and stay stuck for a long time. Some never grow.

Did you ever think about the life cycle of a business and where on this cycle your business stands?

Great organizations understand the life cycle of their business and prepare to deal with the inevitable challenges each step presents PROACTIVELY. But this does not happen naturally. Business leaders must look for signals that indicate a particular stage, and prepare to act accordingly.

Ask yourself the following questions and see if you like the answers:

  • Is your business well positioned to get off the ground, and grow with sustained profitability?
  • Do you know where you want to be on a long-term (say a 10 years horizon)?
  • Are your short-term actions aligned with the long-term goals?
  • Do you have a strong management team that shares the vision of the business. Can the team function without the president/CEO? Is the team aligned on the company's short-term and long-term goals?
  • Do you have an unbiased business advisor who will tell you what you may not want to hear, and show you what is not "obvious"?

If you don't like the answers, come join us for a FREE lively discussion on how to eliminate the barriers that hold back, slow down or even stop your business from growing. Prafulla Pande, a licensee of the CEO Advantageā„¢, will conduct an interactive workshop, providing practical approaches to overcoming typical barriers experienced by small and mid-sized firms. It will help you hone in on the most important thing about your business that you must worry about in 2009 and how to prepare for it.

You made it through 2008. Do you want 2009 to be a repeat of 2008? Come and see how you can build a better future for your business.

This workshop will be held at the Holiday Resort Hotel located at 26555 Telegraph Road, Southfield, MI 48033 on January 27, 2009 between 7:30 AM and 10:30 AM. Continental breakfast will be served.
