Fundamental #3 to successfully scale up your business

Camelia Petrus, PGDip Work Psychology


Looking to scale your business? Many leaders rightly focus on improving their systems and teams, but you must also scale yourself to meet the new demands on your time and attention. We can help develop your Leadership Skills for your next business frontier.

There are three fundamentals to successfully scale up your business: having a clear organisation structure, having comprehensive systems, and developing great leadership.

Heard the quote, “What got you here won’t get you there”? These are wise words (and the title of a book you should read!) are from Marshall Goldsmith. Choosing to scale your business does not come without risk!

Many leaders focus on their systems and teams when looking to scale, which is important, but they must also focus on scaling themselves.


Fundamental #3: developing great leadership

The Leadership and Workplace Behaviour Model.

Most reasons why businesses fail, directly and indirectly, point to leadership failure.

From poor planning to poor hiring, poor communication to poor process, poor capacity to poor execution - most things can be fixed with great leadership.

Scaling the business will make new demands on a leader’s time and attention and it’s critical that these are both focused on the right things:


1. Planning
Setting a clear vision and relevant business goals, regularly reviewing progress, and resetting goals to drive performance improvement.


2. Inspiring
Motivating others to achieve more than before; showing them their potential to make an impact.


3. Empowering
Enabling your team to find their own solutions by guiding them with your support, trust and encouragement.


4. Culture
Demonstrating allegiance to the team and standing for the business’s core values.


5. Innovating
Continuous improvement in people, product, and process.


6. Personal growth
Developing and supporting your future leaders with mentoring and guidance.


Great leadership is about influencing others in the direction of a common goal.

While there can only be one leader of a business, there are seven operational departments that need individual leaders. People can lead multiple departments initially but, as the business grows, should look to empower others and delegate the leadership of some departments to ‘leaders in training’.

On a scale from 1 to 10, how well do you rate your performance on the above six categories? Where can you scale your leadership? Need help? Get in touch.


“The function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers.” - Ralph Nader


 

"Leaders in business looking to improve their organisation’s performance can do so by improving their approach to business, its systems, organisational structure, their workplace emotional climate and ultimately, their emotional intelligence: that is, their skill at identifying, understanding and influencing emotion in self and others. It guides them towards new, more relevant and meaningful ways to grow their business and their relationships or to solve business challenges."
