WHAT ARE YOUR VISIONS OF SUCCESS?
Everybody in business has their own vision of what success looks like. But, in our experience, it’s never a single vision – rather it’s a series of visions that change with time.
There will be what success looks like today, next week, next year and a lot further down the line.
More importantly, as each success is achieved it will redefine the vison of what the next success looks like.
Visions of individual success are important, but generally linked to age and life stage.
The journey is hopefully onward and upward, although not without blocks and barriers – especially as many businesses fail to adequately invest in upskilling their senior executives.
As a business owner or business leader, life can be even more complex and layered.
Most people start off aligned with the overall busines vision but, over time, it can be uncertain whether the executive team is driving the business, or the business is driving the executive team.
It’s no coincidence that the more experienced you are as a leader and the more you know, the harder some decisions can become.
Especially when it comes to thinking about preparing to exit the business.
THE CONSULTANCY, MENTORING AND COACHING YOU NEED TO REALISE YOUR BUSINESS VISIONS ONE STAGE AT A TIME
When it’s time to make the big decisions, every decision maker needs a sounding board. In the first place it’s good to have somebody dispassionate who can help put some flags in the sand about how the business is positioned and analyse what the options are.
Next it’s important to identify that you and the business are asking the right questions to get the right answers.
Finally it’s essential to understand what the aftermath of any decisions will mean to the business and how the leadership will manage change around:
We can consult on the options, mentor you through the decision-making journey and then provide coaching to help you deliver on the desired outcomes.
MAKING BUSINESS DECISIONS IS AN ITERATIVE PROCESS
During your business life, or the lifetime of a business, decisions will cascade one after the other. Most you will be equipped to make – after all that’s your role as an executive, you make judgements and ensure they are carried out.
But as the really pivotal moments present themselves, around changes of strategy or your own work-life balance and personal direction, it can be really beneficial to explore and exhaust possibilities with somebody outside of the organisation. Being that ‘somebody’ is what our core business is all about.
Think of us as a personal trainer for your business. By engaging with your vision together we will identify gaps in the business before designing and implementing a strategic plan for growth.
With a hybrid approach of consultancy, mentoring and coaching we can develop both your capability as a business executive and provide support to your business at every stage. We look forward to talking with you.
