How to sidestep the “daily deluge” so you can actually grow your business.

By Greg Hayne, Hayne Coaching Group

You are about to walk out the door for a much-needed vacation and you right hand man walks in and quits, on the spot, and takes your best crew with him. Just when you are almost caught up and back on schedule, ICE walks in, does an audit and you lose 30% of your workforce. A crew returning at the end of a day runs a red light, broadsides a school business and kills themselves and 15 young children. Your accountant and your operations manager are unable to work together, they constantly fight, and both are too valuable to replace. You discovered that the thousand squares of 060 TPO you just finished installing was supposed to be 080. You have a great day to work and a surprise thunderstorm pops up and drenches your jobsite and the entire contents of the data center you are working on. One of your workers wasn’t careful with his torchwork and caught the building on fire. There was way more damage to the contents of the building from the water the fire department used to put out the fire than there was actually damage from the fire.  Do I need to go on? In running a roofing company you are at risk for all of this, and more, every day.

When any of these happen, your plans change, and for days, weeks or months, you are consumed at fixing/repairing/recovering/damage control. And then there are the daily, smaller crises that seem to steal your entire day. None of them are "major," but they still take your attention. There is always something, isn’t there?! It’s a “daily deluge” and a constant fight. These all can (and do) cost you money, lost opportunity, sleepless nights and produce stress, stress and more stress. Don’t they? But more importantly, they also keep you from doing many of the things you know you need to be doing to grow your business. And three years, five years, ten years from now, you are about the same-sized company you are now. That initiative to do more reroofing and less new construction work? It hasn’t been successful. You want to grow your service department, but you have the same number of service vans you had 8 years ago. You’ve had to pass up some great opportunities because your crews were tied up on low margin projects. (How did that happen?) You feel like your company is running you more than you are running our company.

Want to get off this merry-go-round and actually grow your business? We can help. There are only four steps and we will start sharing them in Part 2, next week. To get the whole article right now, click here or visit us at Hayne Coaching Group today!
