There are four decisions your growth business can't afford to get wrong. I have simple Gazelles tools for each one to make sure you get them right.
- People - Is your team performing at an A level? People issues keeping you up at night? Let's get that handled!
- Strategy - Is your revenue growing fast enough? If not, strategic thinking is the next area to go to work on.
- Execution - Is your bottom line keeping up with the top line? If not, execution planning is where we'll work.
- Cash - You can't grow faster than your available cash. I can help you find more cash in your existing operation.
I am responsible for organizational development here at AboutUs. I also think of this as organizational health or organizational vitality. Not only do I make sure we have a plan, that everyone knows the plan, and that everyone is following the plan, I am constantly looking at how to improve "how we work together."
Before that I worked for about 10 weeks in the Sales team, making phone calls to people interested in promoting their businesses with AboutUs.
Before that I was a member of the Community Staff, working with other staff and the community at large to help each people here realize their goals.
Motivation: I'm here with AboutUs because it's time for us to emerge from our pre-humanness. One piece of that is self-organization. Humans have been self-organizing for thousands of years, and yet in recent history, we've self-organized into unhealthy hierarchies. Here at AboutUs, we're working together in a do-ocracy. What do you want to DO today? We can help. My personal passion is building the social tools we need to work together, for the benefit of us all.
