Those not in business often do not have to deal with the personal growth that is required of a business owner or leader. Whereas an employee gets paid no matter what and gets holidays and much more, the business owner is responsible for creating the enterprise which provides employment to communities, pays taxes, and delivers products and services to the world.
Most importantly, the success of a business is dependent on those in charge of the business and on those running the business. In the case of a small business, it’s a reflection of the owner.
If you look at a global organisation; the performance of that business is a reflection of the board and senior management because they made the strategic decisions around which markets to operate in and which products and / or services to deliver, as well as pricing and culture and what type of people the business would hire and fire.
If you are running a business and it’s only you, then your business will be a reflection of you. If there are a few others involved in the running of the business, then that business will be a reflection of the leadership group.
In engagements with Business Owners we optimise for the following:
Internal and External Results
The success of a business is therefore dependent on the owner’s own ideas, beliefs and development as the owner or managing director. The strategies, pricing, culture, staff and financial performance are all reflections of what you bring to the business.
Our coaching and consulting program for business owners is a two-track approach where we simultaneously work with the person in charge and also with the business. The degree to which we work with each is dependent on the desired outcome of the owner and the current situation of the business.
The results however are tangible for the owner and measurable for the business whether it be financially, culturally and personally, or externally in the marketplace.
