Systems are the key to a process-driven business. This is something you must realize. When running a company, you want to get things done, and focus on execution. But have you thought of each task follow-up and how easy things would be if you were documenting your systems ?
There is a mindset shift…a crucial element in creating a successful business and I will provide it to you in the form of a statement.
I am the leader of a process-driven company.
Say this out loud a couple of times, ok?
I hope that you write that down, because it will change everything for you. Why? A ‘person-assembled’ business or a ‘personality-assembled’ business is difficult to scale because it’s difficult to create consistency.
But a process-driven business that operates with systems opens all kinds of possibilities.
When I was first building my company, I flew by the seat of my pants. Everything was “all hands on deck” and I generated everything from scratch. You may be doing the same right now ?
Even when it came time to hire a team, I did what felt right at the time – hiring a certain person because I liked them, rather than strategically thinking about creating a system of delegation that would grow my business.
I created positions around people that I knew. It was, “What are you good at? What can you do? Cool. I like you, you’re hired.”
It was all about people or personalities BEFORE systems or roles. The problem that I encountered (and you may have encountered this too) is that personalities are not always predictable. Systems are. When the business is built on personalities, instead of processes, it is simply not scalable.
Why? People change, people leave (yes, even those you love deeply) and when you’re not strategic about which role you’re trying to fill versus which person you hire, it creates a mess in your business.
Consistency is the key to a self-managing, scalable business. And this kind of business requires a leader with a mindset that embraces process, systems.
We’ll explore more ideas on this going forward, but for now, ask yourself:
=> Am I open to adopting the mindset of becoming the leader of a process-driven company?
=> Or do I believe it will take away my freedom and creativity?
=> If I were to successfully implement systems and processes for all the things that are making me the bottleneck of my business, could it be possible that I would gain my evenings and weekends back? How?
Take some time to write out the answers to these questions.
Remember, systems are scalable, inconsistency isn’t. Yes, you can create systems that will give you the freedom you seek, even if you’re not a “systems person”, don’t know how you’ll find the time or don’t know where to start. That’s what we’re here for, to show you how doing so will actually transform your business beyond recognition AND give you your life back, while increasing how much you pay yourself.
