    Every company hits very predictable walls as it tries to grow profitably. These walls can't be avoided and each one presents a new challenge to executive teams in terms of leadership skills, infrastructure required, and marketplace dynamics. The key is to know when a company will hit its next wall, and what to start doing in advance to get ready to get over the wall as painlessly as possible and get back to profitable growth.

    During this webinar, attendees will learn how to:

    • Create an awareness and understanding of the barriers to growth
    • Understand what actions you can undertake to continue or restart growth
    • Clarify where the CEO and leadership team should spend their time
