Building Blocks For Growth

Today I'd like to chat about the different types of capabilities and potential staff roles necessary as one grows from inception and survival into growth mode.  At Springboard Consulting we developed a business consulting tool that helps to identify key objectives necessary to springboard your business to the next level.  These levels represent the maturity of the business and here is a brief explanation of the model.

  • Inception / Startups; Less than 2 years old
  • Survival / More than 2 years or making a profit
  • Growth / Business experiencing fast growth, growing staff needs
  • Expansion / Planning Franchising, Licensing, or Multiple Locations business models
  • Maturity / Brand recognition, People, Process, and Technology needs fulfilled

As a company moves towards the growth level, there are essentially three key roles that need to be filled as a building block for growth.

  • The Expert
  • The Manager
  • The Leader

All of these roles need to be played simultaneously by different people with the right talents. It’s all about balance.  In very rare circumstance one person can play these roles until you want to enter the growth phase.  The business needs to be able focus on growing and this is where you start to see the struggle in balancing time for growth vs. managing the business, Leadership vs. the management, and struggles with  operational profitability vs. the need for more sales.  If you have not felt this before it is only a matter of time before you will. 

Here is the solution.  Its about people.

You Need The Expert

This person represents the present and all that needs to be done for the physical operational aspects of the business building process. They are the “doer”.  They focus on working “in” the business.

You Need The Manager

This person represents the past and works to fix problems through learning from past mistakes. They are the practical side of the business and is in charge of putting together the business and overseeing implementation and execution of the strategy.

You Need The Entrepreneur/Leader

This person represents the future and the vision for the business. They are responsible for the creative side of the business and are always considering ways to enhance products/service, business image, branding and more.  They are working “on” the business.

All three of these characters are essential in the success of any business and to build a solid foundation from the start, you need to work harder to find the right people to put in these roles. Obviously, you need to be one of these key people, but ensure you find the role that fits your skills and talents, not necessarily what you THINK you should be doing.

This may be a hard process for you as you will need to relinquish some control over the business and instill trust in people to allow them to do their jobs.
