Questions for the episode:

  1. Do you have aspiring leaders in your organization, yet you are limited to the number of positions available to them simply because of the size of your company? Consider creating a system that allows them to create new businesses that support your main venture. What are some other companies that you could grow from your existing talent pool?  Most of your ideas will come from your people, are you ready to hear and support them?
  2. What is your vision do you have for your business. Take step back and pretend you’re coming in as a potential new partner to your business. What kind of vision would you have for your business?
  3. What could you get from taking a class like those offered from ZingTrain? If you’re not in food service you might benefit from getting a completely different perspective.

You can post your answers to the questions in the comments below or on one of the following channels.
