Business lessons from the distant past can be resurfaced, analyzed and made relevant for todays business professional. Betsy Allen has made a career of analyzing what makes a CEO successful and has studied highly successful business people such as John D. Rockefeller to understand the strategies they employed to achieve a high degree of business success.
According to Betsy, CEOs who want to strive toward becoming a Gazelle organization, one that can consistently achieve 20% growth year-over-year, must instill the discipline to scale sustainably. To do that, Betsy suggests that every CEO must be prepared to answer 4 difficult questions: What strategy does the company need to deploy to achieve 20% or greater revenue growth? Do I have the right people around me in the right place to accomplish this goal? Is my business execution the most efficient that it can possibly be? Do I have the cash or "oxygen" to achieve the level of growth that will make me a Gazelle?
Betsy encourages CEOs to create diversity in their leadership team, attracting individuals with different leadership and management styles to achieve balance. The organization can then focus on educating themselves to elevate self-leadership skills to leverage their team to accelerate growth.
