According to Dr. McCashland, one of the key secrets to building successful businesses is having your talent strategy and goals aligned to mobilize your people to execute on your business vision. Goal alignment requires having a clear understanding of what you want to achieve and why and making sure that everything you do is aligned with your strategic priorities. Aligning a team on reaching goals can be the foundation for building a business that is sustainable and profitable over the long term.
Another important aspect of building successful businesses is positioning and recognizing the importance of each individual team member’s strengths to build a collaborative, high-performing team. Dr. McCashland stresses the importance of having a strong, supportive team and providing them with the resources and support they need to succeed. By creating a culture of trust and collaboration, you can build a team that is connected through a common passion for the work they do and united through their commitment to sharing business goals.
To build billion-dollar companies, it is also essential to have a clear understanding of the trends shaping the future of your market and evolving demands of the customers you serve. This requires you to track key industry influencers and analyze the needs and desires of your target audience, then adapt your business to new realities. Dr. McCashland shares how predictive analytics can be applied to evaluate your market, uncover your business opportunity, and drive business growth and success.
According to Dr. McCashland, most leaders are aware of the importance of these first three secrets, yet they are not aware or effective at executing the last aspect of building a billion-dollar company. The fourth and most frequently missing link to success is a performance-based system that measures the things that matter to operationalize the success of every member of your organization. You need to measure the talents, competencies, and activities proven to drive performance for every role across your workforce. In doing so, you can systematically develop and reward the leading indicators of future success. Without a performance-based system, it’s nearly impossible to scale a quality business.
