Growing a business at scale is a real leadership challenge. You need to develop your leadership capability to meet the growing demands of the business. This is particularly challenging for those high tech, high growth businesses that spin out of a university incubator hub who may have very little leadership experience to draw on. I worked with one rapidly scaling business where the amazing leadership team were all 23.
We look at who they are as leaders, and how they might allocate leadership responsibility between them; for example, how do they set strategy, how do they make decisions, who is the public face of the business? Gaining clarity on these issues early on can prevent a lot of aggravation later. We can also look at blind spots in their thinking and who they might need to support them.
I’m happy to talk to businesses on eligible Innovate UK programmes and to scaling business who want to work with me directly.
