It’s not always a terrible thing to look for help outside your organization. The fact is that you will only be as good as the people that surround you and who can’t use a little outsider influence sometimes. There are so many professionals out there that have made a career of helping others and often times you can achieve an end result faster by utilizing those resources. Why reinvent the wheel if you can learn from the trials and mistakes and successes of others.
Here at Holmes we have always been open minded to seek out professionals in our industry that will push us and challenge us to constantly strive to be better. Can you honestly look at your organization and say that you need to change NOTHING? If so, then most likely your not pushing yourself to be better.
Sometimes seeking help and advice from outsiders is a good thing!
