Potential is one of the most wonderful words in any language. Think about your potential get excited—what a positive thought.
“You have to know who you are to grow to your potential. But you have to grow in order to know who you are.”
So how does a business, any business, ensure that employees are working to their full potential? How does a business experience growth? The growth has to start from within each person, each leader. That is where a John Maxwell certified coach can help.
With a Mastermind session at your company, a coach will lead your teams through a study, such as the 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth. These sessions, which can be customized to your business. A quote from John’s book states that “You will never change your life until you change something you do daily.” We must be intentional about your own personal growth.
While there are 15 total Invaluable Laws of Growth, we will provide a sampling of the first few in today’s blog.
1. The Law of Awareness – You must know yourself to grow yourself. The first step in change is awareness, then you can change.
2. The Law of the Trade Offs – You have to give up to grow up. Eric Hoffer says: “People will cling to an unsatisfactory way of life rather than change in order to get something better for fear of getting something worse.” The difference between where we are and where we want to be is created by the changes we are willing to make in our lives.
3. The Law of Consistency – Motivation gets you going–Discipline keeps you growing. Develop the good habits that lead to success. Just showing up is 80% of success. Some people just don’t show up. You can beat them pretty easily by just being consistent in showing up.
4. The Law of Expansion – Growth always increases your capacity. Most experts believe we only use 10% of their potential. Wow! Scary and
wonderful at the same time. We all have the capacity to grow ourselves.
These are just a sampling of the 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth. These can be applied to any person and any business pain point; a lawyer’s office struggling with communication between staff, an accounting firm looking to promote from within, a doctor’s practice dealing with change due to a new Electronic Medical Record (EMR). The key to these laws is not in what scenario they are applied to, but to the people learning them.
Growth doesn’t just happen on its own. And once we are done with a formal education, we must take complete ownership of the growth process. Contact us today to set up your Mastermind Session for your organization!
