Clear and Consistent Strategy
We talked about the dynamics of 5 partners. With everyone coming from diverse background, I asked about how they kept aligned and if they all had the same vision for the company. “Every Saturday we came together and discussed the business”, my father explained. “Sure we talked about the day-to-day but we made it a priority to talk about the business, where we were headed, and the key decisions that needed to be made to keep us on track.” It was this alignment among the entire executive team that kept the company focused and moving in the right direction.
