Legacy. A simple word. But those six letters may contain more meaning and impact than any other word in the English language. It is deep and wide and has the potential to revolutionize and transform your life and business. At HTG, we call this a keystone value - the value that ignites transformation in every area of your business and life.

What do you want the result of your life, leadership and business to be? Once we know the destination, we can begin to paint a vision, define strategies, build milestones, define tasks and create accountability so we achieve it.

Why Your Key Managers  
Should See Your P&L
Confidential - Active HTG Members Only - May 2017

There are certain insights so durable they get distilled into high-proof, short sentences which pass down through generations and which can only be so short because they are intuitively correct.

Who's Going to Do It?
The most valuable function of an owner or CEO is leading the company to what's next. As you do, who is going to run the day-to-day operations? Who is going to lead the implementation and management of what's next for you? Of course, your sales and service managers.
Timeless truths:
  • You can't manage what you can't measure.
  • You can't expect what you can't inspect.
By now, you know this to be true in your own case. To have the best shot at attaining your value creation strategy, you need to know at least the basics of how to read a P&L. Few leaders of service-centric companies who can't, exceed $5mm.

What about your direct reports, your sales manager and your service manager? How can they manage, if they don't know how to read the measurements? How can they expect their teams to produce better financial results for you, if they can't inspect that financial performance?
