Whenever I visit a new city on vacation, I like to hire a Guide who shows me around the city. I find that the Guide can provide insights that I would not find in tour books or on my own. Obviously, the Guide knows the city much better than I do. It also helps to identify those areas of the city that I want to go back and spend more time exploring. The Guide helps me see those areas that are interesting but do not need much more attention than a brief encounter. The Guide’s tour allows me to see a broader view of the city that I would have not seen on my own.
This “broader view” is also helpful in business. We as Business Leaders get caught up in what we know versus those areas where we have little experience. That is why utilizing “Business Guides,” with expertise in areas we know little about can steer us in a better direction. Those Guides can also help us become aware of those areas within our Companies that need attention and require more time for “exploring.”
