Effectively managing a dynamic and profitable business where both customers and staffers are not only bonded to the organization but actually thrilled to be linked is hard as hell. Smart folks can try for decades and never be able to say they achieved the special balance that positive answers to these questions would bring. The beauty and the balance—and the bounty—of a great company comes from the constant attempt to make a million right choices. It’s nearly impossible. So few people can claim achieving mastery in the business world and yet so many still try every morning. That fact leaves just one conclusion: there is great reward in the good fight. Use these questions as checkpoints in preparation for another day in the ring.
