Does your Business have the Right People on the Bus?

Is your business stuck, stalled, or off track?

Has your business hit the wall, or did your business failings hit you?

Let’s face it running a business is tough, after all, if it was easy…everyone would be doing it.

R. Mike Derryberry’s new book, Hard Knocks, available on Amazon (,) is composed from someone who has crossed the desert and found water to quench their thirst along the trek.

Hard Knocks focuses on your relationship ecosystem as well as some hard truths about business to help you navigate the changing landscape ahead.

How is your business bus running?

By the way, does your business have the right people on the bus? Are they in the right seats?

Remember riding the bus to school when the tormentors claimed the back of the bus and the meek gathered in the front? If that bus were a business, it would have failed not only because of the division, the purpose of the ride was lost or never really clearly defined.

Do your employees pick their seats or are you clarifying the purpose of the trip and assigning seats?
