A really common refrain I hear from company owners is that no one else on their leadership team thinks like an owner.
I have on occasion heard from owner CEOs that they’re frustrated that even other *owners* aren’t thinking like owners.
Scaling effectively needs more than the right processes. It needs your leadership team to have a scaling mindset. And a big part of their getting a scaling mindset is to think like owners (whether they are or not) or CEOs.
To make that happen, you need the right people, the right leadership development mechanisms, and a way to embed systems-thinking in their work.
A favourite of mine is to create and execute your strategy in a way that involves the entire team, regardless of their area of responsibility. A regular strategy implementation pulse, facilitated in rotation by members of your leadership team, does wonders to broaden the entire team’s perspective.
And always… always, on the basis of a well understood and shared set of values.
This strategic pulse is one component of our online group coaching programme for values and purpose-centred CEOs and leadership teams of technology / digital agencies and consultancies.
