Learn how to get a better grip on your business
The foundation of a business lies on accountability. We start by drawing a chart that determines how accountability flows in the organisation, and then build the necessary business metrics to drive the business functions based on this chart.
Start working "on the business"
You will start making time to work on the business, taking time to prepare yourself, gather your thoughts and make the right decisions at the right time. Your teams will meet every week, making this meeting time work for them and loving every minute of it. You will schedule your priorities to make them happen, every time.
Discover your Why, and embrace it
Your Why is innate in you, and you had it even when you set up your business. You will embark on an exploratory process through which you will discover your Why that drives you and your business. Embracing it will make it so much easier to engage with your team and your customers, and ultimately lead you to a happier you.
Recall your Entrepreneurial Dream and set your Goals around it
You originally had an entrepreneurial dream and decided to set out and make it happen. Then work live happened and you lost your way, entrenched head-down in the nuts and bolts of your business. Through this discovery process, understanding what are your life and business objectives, you will be able to set your business’ long-term, visionary goal (Jim Collins’ called it the BHAG – Big Hairy Audacious Goal).
Clarify your Business Vision & Strategy
Knowing your Why and your BHAG, you can clarify your Business Vision and build your Strategy to achieve it. Your Visionary goal will define the rough trajectory of the coming few years, which will in turn define what you need to achieve in the coming yearl
Continuously improve different aspects of your business, every quarter
You, together with your leadership team, will lead the organisation from one successful quarter to the next, each time solving strategic issues once and for all, while creating new opportunities in the process. Keeping to 90-day timeboxes will help you feel successful every time, getting better every quarter.
Coach & develop your leaders to help
you grow the business in a healthy
As your organisation grows, you will need more leaders at various levels to help you achieve your dream together. For this to work, you will need to nurture your future leaders, whether they are complete leadership newbies or else existing leaders about to take a higher leadership role. It takes intent, dedication and lots of time to be able to coach them well, but in the end it is always worth it because you will be entrusting them with your dream.
Liberate yourself to choose your path
and liberate others in the process
Remember that dream you started off with? Well you are now on the right track to achieve it, and in a sense it feels like you already did, because the journey in itself is enjoyable!
