They have both the luxury and the responsibility of making sure that their vision for the company is the future vision of the company. Vision is really all about the culture of the company and how that is applied to the work in the future. In order to accomplish this, an owner needs to think in this order: People first, Process second, and Technology third.

People are the basis for every good company. It is the people that live the culture of the company. It is the people that truly bring the company’s values to life.

At all levels of the organization, effective succession planning is vital to moving the company forward into a future vision. Owners need to have frequent honest and open communication with the leadership team, the management team, and every member of the team about where the company is headed. Owner transparency builds trust. Owner transparency also puts into practice the culture and values that the company embraces.

The future vision of a company is implemented by the leaders of that day. Having the right people in the right place at the right time will make all the difference in the world.

Good or Bad is Just Perception
“There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so.” - William Shakespeare It’s too easy to frame things that happen as good or bad. Try to frame things simply as events and accept that you can choose to perceive them however you want.
Climbing the Mountain - Continuous Improvement
Growing a contracting business is like climbing a mountain. Just plan the next 10 feet; set an anchor and get the whole team up to that level. Repeat a few hundred times. Gotta love being on the mountain; not just being at the summit.
