I lead a $1.2B aerospace services business and we have set ourselves a goal to double in size and improve our margins 100%. Simlar to the examples Mike gave in the podcast the analysis shows that the goal is achievable but there is lots of resistance - starting with the leadership team. I'd be very grateful if the Manager Tools community could provide us with some ideas to break through the barriers. My perspective is that we have three emotional blocks:
1. The opportunity for growth is limited over the next few years - people are struggling to see past this
2. The business is actually made up of 6 smaller businesses (spares, maintenance, etc.) and the only way to achieve the goal is for the businesses to collaborate - ie one may have to 'give up' something for us all to win.
3. We will need to do things differently to get there - new businesses, new ways of managing existing businesses, etc.
Thank you in advance for your ideas!
