Several years ago, I worked with a leader who had experienced a sizeable amount of success. We will call him Jim for the purpose of this article. One of my responsibilities was to organize a semi-annual meeting of the presidents of the eighteen different divisions of the parent company. In these meetings, Jim would pound into his staff of division presidents the need to grow each of the divisions at a rate of 10 percent or more. The results were that some divisions were successful in accomplishing their growth goals and others repeatedly failed.
