Day 1 – Looking after your roots

As the song goes, the first day of Christmas brought a partridge in a pear tree. Today’s advice is to concentrate on the tree – not the bird – and look after its roots.

If that tree is your business, how does it stay strong, stable and growing?

Take a moment to reflect on what makes your company tick. Is it your employees, contracts, suppliers or mission statement? In reality, all of these things probably contribute to your success, but if you damage one of these roots, is the rest of the tree at risk?
