At a small business symposium held in earlier this month, Hydro-Thermal Corporation’s President and CEO, Jim Zaiser, inspired local business owners with his leadership lessons. His keynote presentation for the What to Consider when Growing Your Business event, shared his views on the critical components to making big strides in a small business. Hydro-Thermal experienced greater than 30% growth in 2015, so attendees were eager to learn his secrets.
A balance of innovation, diversification, risk and hiring the best possible talent were a few of the critical key drivers for success. Zaiser also spoke of the benefits of partnering with entities outside your organization. This greatly increases intellectual capital and accelerates R&D, while also expanding knowledge of new technologies.
Investing in where you want to be as an organization was another theme that resonated with attendees. After chatting with participants informally after his presentation Zaiser remarked, “What I shared today are lessons that can truly benefit any business owner, regardless of their company size or industry type. They are foundational elements for success.” Symposium attendees were from a wide range of industries – from food and beverage to service providers, municipal to manufacturing, and more.
