Scaling Up Business develops the potential in organizations and people with powerful coaching and training programs based on Scaling Up and the Rockefeller Habits from Verne Harnish and Gazelles International.
Businesses —and the people that make them go— have the power to make an extraordinary impact on the world. When businesses innovate and improve, there’s a positive effect on more than just the bottom line. Everyone benefits from a values-centered business engaged in a powerful vision: the individuals that work for the company, the customers, the local community, and the economy at large. Businesses like that can accomplish great things that make a real difference in the world.
But, not every business is run like that. All too often, greed and the struggle for survival lead to bad practices and huge scandals that destroy lives, alienate shareholders, and devastate economies. Famous examples like Enron come to mind, but it happens all over the world, and in all sorts of industries. People lose faith in business and it damages everyone in the end.
It doesn’t have to be that way. From entrepreneurs running innovative start-ups to large and established corporations, businesses have the potential to create jobs, benefit society, and be an agent of positive change. The potential of business to have an impact on the world exceeds even that of non-profits, religious organizations, and government programs because business shapes our economy and communities more than anything else.
At Scaling Up Business, our mission is to help business leaders and their teams take the reins in unleashing their natural power to find true growth and success—while also benefiting the families, communities, companies, and everyone they touch.
We’re in this for the good of business—in a way that benefits everyone.
Our core values:
Bold and Authentic. We courageously take the initiative and share ourselves fully — our energy and time, our fears, struggles, and our deepest aspirations. We empower ourselves and inspire others in the process.
Never Finished. We believe that learning and growing is a way of life, and we relish the extraordinary opportunity to be forever developing ourselves for the better.
Create and Innovate. We delight in discovery, inspiration, problem-solving, and the productive adventure of trying out new things.
Think and Ask. We believe that actively thinking is more helpful than having thoughts. An inquisitive mind improves communication and understanding.
Laugh. We never take ourselves, or our ideas, too seriously. We’d rather look for reasons to smile and laugh.
