The journey of the CEO is not a step by step process. It is chaotic, to say the least.
Some mornings it feels like you have taken 2 steps back, and you are probably right.
Jacques understands this journey as he has filled these shoes, and has helped many other CEO’s manage their businesses.
The recipe he has found on this journey is not the step-by-step process sold to many. No, the success recipe to take your business to the next level requires 5 key ingredients. The size and quantity of these ingredients depend on you, the size and age of your business and the context your company operates in.
At Centred, we understand this and help CEO’s develop and grow, together with their businesses to take it to the next level.
A strategic plan that is not documented is not a strategy set for success. A plan that is documented, can be tracked and an accountability conversation can take place. It also ensures sustainability, asking what the winning moves are that needs to be made to stay in business.
When team members back each other and display trust, there is an increase in efficiency and a decrease in cost:
If the majority of employees work for more than just a paycheck, and actually care about the company, things start to change. For the good that is.
A company must make money and Profit Before Tax (PBT) as a percentage of revenue generated, is one of our key indicators. We help our clients achieve a PBT% of greater than 10% or help them increase if it is already in the double-digit range.
The hardest part for any leader is the realisation that your company is a reflection of you. If you want things to change in your business, you need to change. We help with that change process, for the CEO and all involved.
