Anecdotal evidence that it’s time to shift to a growth focus

A colleague of mine has noticed a dramatic shift in his recent eBay sales. This shift suggests that consumer confidence in the economy has grown considerably.

On eBay, he is seeing increased sales of higher-end “desirables” such as Coach purses and collectibles. This is an indicator of an increase in disposable income and an overall feeling that the future job market will be stable.

I believe there is a window during which you can re-energize your team and shift their eyes to generating and managing growth before everyone else does. Getting your team a couple of steps ahead of the competition can have a huge payoff.

As always, I believe that team-based strategic planning is a powerful, well-proven tool to help you quickly make the jump. Take a look at what other CEOs have said about the immediate business impact of their strategic planning efforts.
