In this episode of the podcast I talk with Greg Nathan of the Franchise Relationships Insititute.
Often we will hear franchisors groan about the challenge of franchisees taking up new initiatives.
However, when it comes to resisting bold and new ideas, is the problem with Franchisees or the Franchisor?
During this discussion, Greg highlights some key activities to undertake with your franchisor to bring initiative forward, and even talks about the number one priority when doing so.
Does innovation slow in systems as they get larger, and the need to maintain compliance or “participation” is prioritised.
What if somewhere in YOUR network, there are ideas and activities underway (and profitable ones at that), that you just aren’t listening to any more, because the noise of numbers is too great.
This bloke makes great sense, and you’ll hear why when you listen in.
