Why We Can’t Wait for 2015  [Poll Results]

Will you be at the polls on Tuesday?  Election day is fast approaching and our country’s direction hangs in the balance.
Two weeks ago, over 200 executives went to the polls to vote on a different kind of direction – the top strategic challenge their companies will face in 2015.   If you were one of the voters, thank you for participating – your vote matters!

You may recall the One Question poll I shared with you approximately two weeks ago.  The One Question – “What do you foresee as your biggest strategic challenge in 2015?” – provides tremendous insight into some of the obstacles that we all face now and in the future.

Poll Results

The results are in!  I’ve listed the top four and the percent of total votes allocated to each:

  1. Achieving Family-Work Balance  25.5%
  2. Lack of the Right Talent in Key Roles  20%
  3. Acquiring New Customers  16.4%
  4. Poor Strategy Execution  10.9%

Are you surprised?  Or, is that exactly how you thought it would shake out?

A Promise

Your top four challenges are at the core of the CircleMakers.co platform – both now, and especially, in the future.  Your votes are helping us to prioritize our development focus as we embark on a journey to become the ultimate go-to resource for all things growth.   We are committed to not only helping you do growth strategy better for your business, but also as it relates to the growth of you and your team.

In the meantime, I invite you to peruse our content library, organized for convenience by month or topic category.  You will find oodles of articles, videos, inspiration and helpful links addressing all of the top four challenges listed above.  What’s more, if you’re in the middle of strategy planning for 2015 and are looking for a team of strategists to help you unlock your full potential, now is the time.

See you at the polls tomorrow morning!
