    Pros

    The owner and principal of the company is a great person. He is honest, visionary, fair and not afraid to open his wallet to make improvements, also not only willing, but yearning to transition the company into a top of the line leader of the trade show manufactures industry.

    Cons

    The biggest downside that comes to mind and at the root of many problems, in my opinion, is the owner's sense of loyalty regarding some of the employees who started with him during the early stages. This should really be a positive point. However, some of these managers are holding the company back from its true potential because of their insecurities, lack of vision and fear of the 'real world,' sort of speak. They keep resisting much needed change and unwittingly hold progress hostage. I experience too many instances where real solutions to problems were presented or introduced, but the culture's resistance resulted in the company loosing money, trust and image equity over the same recurring problems. Any outsider who can embody success, or help to inject new life will be put through the "nimlokolization-ritual." It is almost like a mafia. At the end of the process the outsider is either forced out, neutralized or will have to adopt the status-quo. Some of these people don't necessarily have to be let go, they just need to be moved out of the way.

    Advice to Management

    The best advice I can sum up for senior management is to understand that there are no shortcuts; no matter how long you have been leading your people. Character makes trust possible, and trust is earned not given. Nor does it come with a tittle...the tittle buys you a little bit of time as the spotlight is shining on you. Not only is it necessary to make sound decisions, but you also have to admit your own mistakes. Trust will continue to grow and develop when you put what's best for your followers and the organization ahead of your own agenda and alliances. So, focus on trust at all levels to build a solid ground from which the plan of action can truly take flight.
