Simple Scaling Book Taster

First Chapter – Psyche

It all starts with the mind. The success or failure of your scaling journey starts with the thoughts you think. What you believe you can achieve sets the limit on what you will achieve. To become a successful scaler, you will need to work on your mindset. Don’t underestimate the inner work. And don’t underestimate the magnitude of the challenge you face. Successful scaling is incredibly challenging.

But the rewards are immense.

SCALEX™ Process SCANNER

Process Scanner

Processes and systems are often the missing piece to scale a business to the next level. But despite many knowing how important they are most business leaders don’t see them as urgent and so, as a consequence, they never get around to doing anything about it. As a result, they hit a ceiling. They become trapped in the day-to-day operation and the growth of the business stalls. Use this tool to help you to identify which area of your business causes you the most pain and start to hone in to understand what might be the cause. Building well defined processes and systems is the difference between survival and scaling up your business.

SCALEX™ Potential TOOL

Paradigm of Potential

We are all programmed to think in a certain way, to dissect our outside circumstances and try to make sense of why we are and why we do what we do. It’s a constant struggle and one that can block us from achieving our goals and dreams. What we tell ourselves unconsciously often becomes our reality. This is called our paradigm – our conditioned way of thinking, feeling and acting and it has control over a staggering 97% of our habitual behaviour. Use this tool to help you to spot some of those thoughts, feelings and habits that might limit your performance. Identifying ways that you can stop them and swap them for positive behaviours that will improve your performance and serve you well on your scaling journey.

SCALEX™ EXPANDER TOOL

ScaleX™ Expander

When ambitious leaders begin to dream about accomplishing exponential growth, the first thing that derails their thinking is when they start to consider ‘how’ they are going to achieve it. They consider what is involved; the investment it requires, the endless list of challenges to overcome, the impact on their already packed schedules and very quickly there are many, many reasons why not to proceed. We are naturally programmed to try to find our own way through this complex maze. Stop. This is a trap. Don’t limit yours based on what you can achieve on your own. Use this tool to help you to identify ‘who’ those strategic partners are and set about connecting with them. The most successful scaling businesses focus on finding the right partners who can help them to go beyond what they can accomplish alone.

SCALEX™ Talent TOOL

Tomorrow’s Talent

Building a strong pipeline of leaders is a priority within every scaling business and implementing a system that periodically identifies the team’s development needs and takes action to address them is essential. Overtime, this will enable the top team to step away from the day to day running of the company and allow them to seize opportunities that will further grow it. Using this tool, begin by identifying the critical roles that you will require to achieve your vision over the next 3 years. Then, think about who within your business has the potential to fulfil these roles. Once you have identified the gaps, you can be sure you are investing in the right capability to scale up.

Not only do they present multiple opportunities for people to join your company but it also presents wonderful opportunities for your team to take on new roles and grow their careers as they execute the plan.

This tool ensures that you are asking the right questions before placing people into roles and environments that will allow them to thrive, giving you the confidence that they will skilfully navigate the course and clear the jumps with ease.
