Becoming a Lighthouse Business
"Once built, Lighthouse businesses become beacons that emanate a very specific message to the marketplace, that attract profitable clients and the best talent through the brightness of its mission." - Adam Michaels
Why the Lighthouse?
Survive or thrive.
The concept of building a Lighthouse business is an epic paradigm shift in the way organizations must operate in order to thrive. In today’s marketplace, there are two types of companies– Lighthouses and the all too common Tugboat business.
Tugboat businesses are stuck in a perpetual cycle of pain and strain. When these businesses need talent, they fire up the boat engines, make their way out of the harbor, compete with all the other Tugboats to find people and pull them in. If there’s a bad recruiter, a process breakdowns or technology fails, it compounds the problem. The same is true when seeking to gain and grow client relationships, these businesses have to push out and pursue clients each time. For Tugboat operators, client and talent acquisition are costly, time consuming, and extremely difficult.
By contrast Lighthouse organizations are impervious to changing, marketplace conditions – they are limitless in their capacity and somewhat insulated from environmental changes. Though Lighthouse organizations require blueprints, a strong foundation and quality building materials (products and people), this infrastructure leads to strength, integrity and credibility – critical elements for which there are no shortcuts.
