Are you operating like a Builder or a Protector today? Based on James Fischer's extensive research, an organization or business unit goes through a predictable set of challenges at each stage of growth, and, at each stage there is an optimal ratio of Builders to Protectors.
A Builder mindset creates new ideas, takes on new initiatives, finds ways to expand the revenue and profitability of the enterprise. They are risk tolerant and highly supportive of growth.
A Protector mindset is cautious and prefers to slow things down. They are risk averse and highly suspicious of growth.
