5 steps to take before you hire!

 for eaAll businesses need a creative at the helm. As a visionary leader, you’re perfectly placed to blast your business into existence. But as EOS founder Gino Wickman and EOS Certified Implementer Mark C Winters state in their book ‘Rocket Fuel’, a visionary needs an integrator – it’s a two-piece dream team puzzle for business success. 

The dream team visionary

This person is the person who has all the great ideas. They love coming up with plans for business growth, new products and plans. Their passion, drive and creativity are what drive your business forward. If you have the drive and passion to start your own business, there’s a high chance that you’re a visionary yourself.

As a visionary leader, you’re the perfect person to start a business. You can inspire others with your motivation and plans. You love seeing the big picture, and you’re great at solving problems around getting everything up and running.

A visionary leader thinks big – but struggles with small

But it does mean you could hit problems growing a business. There’s too much back-office admin to handle, the day-to-day running of a business does not inspire you – and when you are doing these tasks, you feel your motivation and creativity taking a nosedive. 

You’re great at being the person who thinks big, but you struggle with playing small, and that includes thinking of plans, details and individual steps. Putting it bluntly, you get bored with the mundane, the day-to-day routine, the systems, processes and administration – and your passion isn’t enough to motivate you to do them long term. 

The integrator in your dream team

Complements your talents and strengths. They’re able to free you from the mundane, back-office admin, so you can focus on being the creative visionary that you are. Your time is free to build on your strengths – without worrying about how to implement and plan your business’s strategic plan for growth.

An integrator loves detail! They know how to keep your business running smoothly, by implementing the systems, processes and strategies it needs. An integrator knows how to motivate you and your team, and they’re able to be the middleman between you both – relaying information in a way that all parties can understand and appreciate.

They’re two halves of a perfect business relationship

All businesses need a creative at the helm. As a visionary leader, you’re missing your essential complement – an integrator. You can’t do it all on your own. When you work together with an integrator, you have a formula that will give you the freedom to focus on what you were built to do – without it negatively impacting your business. You can catapult your company forward to its full potential, knowing you’ve got the dream team in place, because you’re partnered with an integrator who can put into detailed action everything you visualise for your business.
