Workers Rack: Pacing for Growth
We all want to stretch, improve and grow, but sometimes finding out how to scale your work is a challenge. I know that I still understand this as an entrepreneur, and we have a very talented community which is in the same boat.
Earlier this month, I spoke to the founder and CEO of the Argison Solutions Alison Arring and the author of “Pacing for Growth: Why Intelligent Relresh Long Term Security Drive”. Alison is helping organizations grow for the last 30 years. He also learned lessons about development through his experiences as a patient athlete. He has done Marathon, Ultra-Marathon, Triathlon and Ironman competitions.
What business lessons can you learn from competing as an athlete? What I learned from my conversation with Alison is that.
Push for development, but identify your boundaries
“If you look at the body, then it teaches us that there are some things that we can do to create capacity – to go faster and move forward. We have to push as leaders, but also understand That there are some real limitations, and work to create capacity, “she says.
He presented me with the idea of ”intelligent restraint” – dragging myself and pressuring for development, but by now you do not cross your borders.
“If we are not pushing, if there is no edge, if we are not suppressing people out of their comfort zone, then they are not changing. They are not growing, and the trade is changing and growing You push yourself and you push your business to go as far as possible, but do not move until you have the ability to keep it. ”
Focus on specific goals
The bus is just growing for development, it is not all meaningful. I have talked to many entrepreneurs and business owners who are working to make Focus in 2018. Allison agreed that sometimes the best way to scale is to focus: “It is about saying that let’s focus on the beneficial, what is meaningful, what is bringing me to work every morning.”
Start with people
So many organizations think about the goal but make their people the last plan. It’s backward, says Ellison. “When I think about scaling for development, then it’s a lot about people.”
I often find that small businesses have difficulty because leaders can not represent others on the team. But large, growing businesses also face challenges. “We work with some high-tech companies who are growing so fast, and their managers have very little experience, they start a job, and within six months the job gets bigger. Think, those people really have to grow fast, and they should be able to grow their people even faster, “she says.
She says that the key to developing a team comes back for all the solid routines. It is about regular people with good people. “Whether it’s a phone or face-to-face, it’s about preparing a place to understand how to help that person and how to help them change in the future. That routine is important.”
Focus on developing remote workers
So many organizations are employed by employees who are not sitting in the same office every day. I have worked remotely for years, and many organizations which I rely on remote teams. Alison says that it is a challenge to develop those remote workers and to move forward.
“Remoteness is both a blessing and a curse. Its curse is that when we work independently, others are not necessarily what we are seeing and connecting with us in such a way that they can give us feedback. And we can help and support us as much as we can if we are co-located in a normal office environment. We actually get more actively Ocna will. If we can learn to train people without seeing them, we become even stronger as leaders.”
Alison says that she is working closely with five continents, and she focuses on helping them stay connected on the human level. “We have such people who have never met each other, one of the things that I am actually trying to think about is how we can make sense in our company, when people are physically If the spread is spread, the transaction becomes very easy for the conversation, it is about our work, it is often difficult to get an overall picture of the challenges of individuals. How are they feeling? A part of what we need to do as leaders is making psychological security, we have to provide support. When we do this, we can accelerate development.
“I think the technique can help us. Sometimes it can make it very bad, but for the second time it actually brings us the soul through connecting us.
