http://chrislocurto.com/5-cant-ignore-keys-to-business-growth/

If you’ve run a business for more than a day, you know growing a company involves more than selling stuff.

Fast forward a year or two later when you’ve added team members, and you definitely know it involves more than that!

As an entrepreneur or leader, you know these issues, and so many more, are part of running a company and leading a team.

That said, I’ve learned how to eliminate or minimize them in my business so they don’t hold my team back or me from crushing it every day.

Here are 5 keys you can’t ignore to grow your business.

165: Leading With Grace

Podcast cover
Read more
Grace. It’s something we all need. Oddly enough, it’s not something that we give very freely. Every single one of us has junk in our lives. Instead of judgement or ridicule, we need to give grace and receive grace.

You’ve had at least one leader who was a jerk, a leader who was rough, a leader who didn’t have grace. The thing is that you have to understand people do what they’re taught.

Leading with grace requires one huge, huge thing. The first thing that leading with grace requires is, a relationship with the almighty God. A relationship with the one who has the most grace.

Your God is somebody who loves you so much, so much that he wants to spend eternity with you, that he did the greatest act of grace ever, and that was on the cross.

That was him saying, “I want everlasting life with you and so I am going to take on the worlds worst beatings, the worlds worst punishment, so that I can have it with you.” All you’ve got to do is choose.

That act is such a massive act of love, and an act of grace.

Now what does that mean for leading? What it means is if I am going to treat people with grace I must first have it. I have been given so much grace that I must give grace.

I have had so much grace in my life because I have screwed so many things up, I have done so many things with stupid, I have done so many things wrong, and I have needed that grace from god even when I didn’t realize I was doing things wrong.

It was there, and it’s been there, and I’ve bee able to receive that. I’m able to look back on my life and see many of the things that God has done to give me grace I must give grace to others.

Leading others has to start with me, I start with the understanding that I have this grace.

Be honest...how many "life hacks" are you trying implement this week? How many lists, habits and resources do you invest in monthly?

Timeout.

There are plenty of tools out there to fix "the problem" or increase your productivity. But before you invest in a solution, ask yourself...

-Do I really know what's holding me back?
-Do I have correct perspective, not just people's advice and opinions?
-Why am I responding the way I am?
-Am I looking at my business and life the right way?
