Slowing Down to Scale Up: Tips for Effective Business Growth with Ernesto Mandowsky
As business owners, we often find ourselves caught up in the hustle and bustle of daily operations, rarely taking the time to step back and assess where the biggest challenges and bottlenecks are in our organizations. This can make it difficult to effectively scale our businesses.
Ernesto Mandowsky, CEO of CPD Advisors and expert in designing systems to help leaders scale their organizations, believes that the first obstacle to scaling a business is simply being caught up in the “rat race” of serving clients and meeting the day’s urgent needs. In order to overcome this obstacle, he suggests slowing down to assess the business’s goals and determine if they are achievable with the current manpower and resources.
When designing a system to help a business scale, Mandowsky starts by asking the business owner what their goals are. This allows him to tailor the system to the specific needs of the business and ensure that it will help them reach their goals.
Mandowsky also emphasizes the importance of mindset in scaling a business. He notes that many business owners want to jump ahead to their end goals without taking the necessary steps to get there, leading to feelings of guilt and shame. To avoid this pitfall, he suggests focusing on the present and being confident in where the business is currently at.
In summary, scaling a business effectively requires slowing down to assess goals, designing a tailored system, and maintaining a confident and focused mindset. With these steps in mind, business owners can avoid common pitfalls and achieve success in scaling their organizations.
