ARE YOU READY for what it takes to ACHIEVE GROWTH?
How often do you validate or revise your business’s growth strategy? If your first thought was “Not enough”, read on.
Have you identified the critical success measures as your organization implements that growth strategy? If your response included “Maybe we’re not measuring the right things”, keep going.
This event takes place on February 1, 2019 in Thornton (just outside of Denver) with Jess Dewell, Founder of Red Direction and Rapid Growth Entrepreneur, Consultant and Business Advocate.
Join us – with your team – to learn, create and use:
- Refresher on business growth strategy: what’s important, what’s not and how can rapid growth result from each leader’s deep investment ensuring success for staff, investors and customers.
- Big picture view and research on economic pressures and openings for your sector.
- Insight and support for ambiguities of growth, internal capabilities necessary for growth and sustaining leaders’ appetite for results.
The Growth Strategy Summit delivers high-level thinking and perspective as well as hands-on, interactive exploration of how to unlock organizational best practices. Jess, a keynote speaker and a panel of experts will help entrepreneurs navigate the maze of sustainable business growth.
Remove common misunderstandings about what a growth strategy is and how to use it.
With technology and perceptions changing quickly, the ability to adapt and build resilience come from using time differently. The way one approaches situations with immediate need, with just the teensiest bit of forethought, tends to drive long-term goals. Counterintuitively, leaders who use long-term goals as a filter to address unexpected situations and medium-length goals get better results over time.
This team workshop is geared toward taking advantage of what you already know, have experienced, and the problems you are trying to solve right now. All that without losing sight of where the company is going … without the need to reinvent or completely stall. Use the work you’ve already done, the base of knowledge already in place, and your business plan to leverage and adapt for maximizing growth.
Use methodologies and frameworks
– created through hands-on trials, tribulations and triumphs –
to ignite your company’s growth strategy.
On February 1, 2019, Denver Metro business leaders will gather to learn recent thinking and insight from national and global leaders, focused for medium sized and startup operations.
The Growth Strategy Summit is a good reason to work away from your office that Friday, to refresh your methods and approaches, investing in your own professional development with 100 of your peers.
Jess will lead discussion and activities on three key areas:
- Anticipating and responding to changing customer expectations
- Embracing shifts in markets and competitors to accelerate your company’s potential.
- Breaking through business plateaus (even if you haven’t yet experienced a levelling off).
What’s Growth Strategy got to do with my role?
Your role – as a leader with budget responsibility and team performance accountability – has a lot of unknowns. The way you lead has roots in how you feel about ambiguity … the fact that information is imperfect and also usually incomplete. The way you address these unknowns can instill confidence in your team, or not.
Falling back on ingrained habits that we used, with some level of success in the past, will not support great leaps in sales, in scaling, and in positioning for acquisition.
You are in your role because of specialized skills and/or leadership. In both cases past performance was a factor in your promotability. The scope of your role now directly impacts the bottom line, product delivery, manufacturing, supply chain … human resources and sales. Every senior role in an organization has a responsibility in implementing and executing the company’s growth strategy.
Growth Strategy and Your Team’s Success
Understanding how your role fits into the company’s growth strategy is an often-overlooked role responsibility. The skills you bring that will impact the achievement of your company’s growth strategy are vital, and it’s important to understand how you will leverage them. The way you define the company’s values can be analyzed in the cohesiveness of the way your direct reports interact and perform.
Leading today requires that you are able to articulate company value, demonstrate behaviors that build value, and create a dynamic knowledge base that is steeped in an understanding of how you and your team fulfill and achieve objectives. These are elements of leadership capacity. They are measured by the way value is created and how it appears in terms of innovation, improvement, and problem solving.
For Jess, lifting business leaders’ vision, perspective and confidence for business growth is as important as the agenda’s data and recommendations; to fan the flames of your appetite for growth.
