Congratulations, your business is growing.
That’s going to allow you to make a bigger impact for your people, industry, and community.
But if you're like most CEOs at this stage, you're also dealing with growing pains. Tenured folks who did great when the company was smaller start to struggle, and tension arises between "old guard" and new.
Believe it or not, these are good problems! They're leading indicators, and they give you a chance to tackle issues before they turn in to full-blown threats to your business.
You want to:
- Implement a clear vision that unites and inspires; your senior team gets the vision and makes great decisions,
- Align your people with the growth strategy: people who understand where the business is going and how they contribute,
- Embed and sustain the culture to reinforce it all; a way to maintain visibility to it all without getting buried.
Maybe you've already done parts of this work. You may even have a 'Head of People and Culture' on board, but...
The Growth-Readiness Assessment
The first step in determining your company's true cultural readiness for growth.
The GRA is a comprehensive, facilitator-led series of conversations with all levels across the organization. It focuses on the research-based components of sustainable growth and the extent to which they're currently embedded in your culture.
Basically, you'll learn if your people and culture are truly growth-ready.
Your results will also enable you to:
Prevent growing pains from derailing your growth strategy
Plan for the aspects of culture that need to evolve, as well as those to protect
Build a scaleable company with and through your people
