Growing Your Company From The Inside Out – Business Discipleship Culture

When comes down to grow businesses, owners would typically think about different ways to market their company, using different venues, which by the way is valid and owners should do that anyway. It is called external growth. However, what most business owners don’t think about or don’t pay attention to is to promote internal growth as intentionally as it can be, to serve their employees with their needs and to provide them a vision, path and tools to become the best they can be.

Internal Growth Process – Discipleship Culture

To most of business owners, the most painful part of growing a business is “growing their team”. And, naturally we can say that business owners would love to clone themselves, thinking that would be the answer to their problems. And if doing the right way would definitely be the ultimate answer and the way to go. The question is: what is the right way of doing this so called Internal Growth?

The answer is Business Discipleship Culture and it starts from the top. A team of employees are no different than a team of disciples. They are the life of the company and they are the ones that represent you as a company, which means they will share what they hear and learn and they will do as they see and witness from you. So it is fair to say that if you, as a company leader, lack on certain areas so will your employees and correction needs to take place before moving forward.

Establishing a discipleship culture is a process to correct and define the ideal leadership character and employees to fulfill the vision (mission) over and over again!

Develop and Invest on Relationships To Support Growth – Business Growth Strategy

Cultivating relationships and investing time in it is a smart thing to do on many different levels and it should be a part of your business growth strategy. It is important to grow relationships with the people you currently do business with and to invest time getting to know them, their vision and preferences. That alone will naturally lead to more business.

Strategic AlliancesIn a lot of cases, business owners miss out on opportunities to develop strategic alliances and relationships with potential contributors, associates or clients because their focus and drive were limited to the sale portion of it.

These days, people are interested in developing meaningful relationships above anything else, especially because that there are so many options available. There are exceptions to the rule, but surely this applies to the majority of cases.

It is also important to genuinely take interest in people and what they do; to be proactive in helping them succeed. This goes a long way. There are many different types of relationships you should cultivate to promote business and personal growth, for example:

  • Your Team: get to know your Team individually. Take the time to find out about their needs, desires and visions for their life. Explore their weaknesses and strengths to motivate them to grow. Challenge your Team to work and learn from each other. Promote relationships and be the example
  • Your Clients: develop better ways to serve your clients’ needs. Listen to them and learn their interests
  • Your Alliances: build strong alliances within your industry. Don’t be afraid to share and help others get ahead. Believe it or not, an act of genuine kindness takes you a lot further than you think and you will always be remembered
  • Your Network: you probably heard the expression “giver’s gain”. Be available to help more than to be helped. Make it part of your DNA and be available to people.

These are among the most important relationships you can build to support your growth.

G3 America believes, as one of its core principles, that to treat everyone equally and with the same importance and attention. To develop relationship and serve others are what we love to do and will always look for ways to improve it!

Why Should You Train And Invest In Your Employees’ Professional Development? Business Consultant South Florida

Employee Training

Employee Training

Your company can only grow if the people around you grow with you! Otherwise you will be limited to what they can do according to their knowledge, which means your company’s growth and vision will probably be compromised.

There should be a system in place to train your employees from the moment they join the company, not only on procedures, but to educate every single one of them about your company’s vision and model.

The employees’ professional development process should be continual and complemented by tools and efforts to assist your employees on further developing their professional skills to motivate them to grow and possibly to become leaders within your organization. For example:

  • Training prior to Hire: very important to build foundation from the beginning (discipline, trust, follow instructions and abide by the rules)
  • Sharing the same vision: educate your employees about your vision. It has to be about your vision and not theirs, and show how they can grow with it as well.
  • Training after hire: promote constant and periodic training sessions on current systems (sales, customer service etc…)
  • Discipleship Training: your employees represent you, whether you like or not! Make sure to train them and educate them on your company’s mission statement, and most importantly, lead by example!!
  • Developing Leaders/Promotions: part of growth, and one of the most important ones, is to create leaders that will rise to the occasion!
  • Seminars/ Continuing Education: invest in your staff sending them to seminars, trade shows and industry meet-ups. Help them create a large and prosperous vision.

The biggest mistake is to think that it is risky to invest money developing employees or to limit their capabilities thinking that they might leave after awhile. Really, the mistake here is not to train them and they end up staying for 20 years!!

8 Core Beliefs of Extraordinary Bosses – Business Development South Florida

The best managers have a fundamentally different understanding of workplace, company, and team dynamics. See what they get right.

A few years back, I interviewed some of the most successful CEOs in the world in order to discover their management secrets. I learned that the “best of the best” tend to share the following eight core beliefs.

1. Business is an ecosystem, not a battlefield.

Average bosses see business as a conflict between companies, departments and groups. They build huge armies of “troops” to order about, demonize competitors as “enemies,” and treat customers as “territory” to be conquered.

Extraordinary bosses see business as a symbiosis where the most diverse firm is most likely to survive and thrive. They naturally create teams that adapt easily to new markets and can quickly form partnerships with other companies, customers … and even competitors.

2. A company is a community, not a machine.

Average bosses consider their company to be a machine with employees as cogs. They create rigid structures with rigid rules and then try to maintain control by “pulling levers” and “steering the ship.”

Extraordinary bosses see their company as a collection of individual hopes and dreams, all connected to a higher purpose. They inspire employees to dedicate themselves to the success of their peers and therefore to the community–and company–at large.

3. Management is service, not control.

Average bosses want employees to do exactly what they’re told. They’re hyper-aware of anything that smacks of insubordination and create environments where individual initiative is squelched by the “wait and see what the boss says” mentality.

Extraordinary bosses set a general direction and then commit themselves to obtaining the resources that their employees need to get the job done. They push decision making downward, allowing teams form their own rules and intervening only in emergencies.

4. My employees are my peers, not my children.

Average bosses see employees as inferior, immature beings who simply can’t be trusted if not overseen by a patriarchal management. Employees take their cues from this attitude, expend energy on looking busy and covering their behinds.

Extraordinary bosses treat every employee as if he or she were the most important person in the firm. Excellence is expected everywhere, from the loading dock to the boardroom. As a result, employees at all levels take charge of their own destinies.

5. Motivation comes from vision, not from fear.

Average bosses see fear–of getting fired, of ridicule, of loss of privilege–as a crucial way to motivate people.  As a result, employees and managers alike become paralyzed and unable to make risky decisions.

Extraordinary bosses inspire people to see a better future and how they’ll be a part of it.  As a result, employees work harder because they believe in the organization’s goals, truly enjoy what they’re doing and (of course) know they’ll share in the rewards.

6. Change equals growth, not pain.

Average bosses see change as both complicated and threatening, something to be endured only when a firm is in desperate shape. They subconsciously torpedo change … until it’s too late.

Extraordinary bosses see change as an inevitable part of life. While they don’t value change for its own sake, they know that success is only possible if employees and organization embrace new ideas and new ways of doing business.

7. Technology offers empowerment, not automation.

Average bosses adhere to the old IT-centric view that technology is primarily a way to strengthen management control and increase predictability. They install centralized computer systems that dehumanize and antagonize employees.

Extraordinary bosses see technology as a way to free human beings to be creative and to build better relationships. They adapt their back-office systems to the tools, like smartphones and tablets, that people actually want to use.

8. Work should be fun, not mere toil.

Average bosses buy into the notion that work is, at best, a necessary evil. They fully expect employees to resent having to work, and therefore tend to subconsciously define themselves as oppressors and their employees as victims. Everyone then behaves accordingly.

Extraordinary bosses see work as something that should be inherently enjoyable–and believe therefore that the most important job of manager is, as far as possible, to put people in jobs that can and will make them truly happy.

  1. What type of company or professional are you?
  2. What is your customer target?
  3. What is your market?
  4. What is your vision 5 years from now?

Although they all seem easy to answer, often business owners have a hard time answering them for the simple fact that they don’t know how to answer them.

When developing your business growth strategy, it is essential to be very specific and target oriented. Being broad is not an option and could prevent you from growing as planned.
