Scale Your Business Without Compromising Happiness

Updated: Apr 26

Many solo and small firm professional services providers are quite happy with their size, and they don't want to change it in any way. Others, though, decide to scale the business at some point, and that's the focus of the latest episode of 𝘛𝘩𝘦 𝘗𝘳𝘪𝘤𝘦 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘝𝘢𝘭𝘶𝘦 𝘑𝘰𝘶𝘳𝘯𝘦𝘺.

I welcomed one of the nation's top scalability authorities, Terry Dockery, Ph.D., aka "Doc," to address this issue.

The discussion centers on the critical role of happiness and personal fulfillment as you scale your business. Topics addressed include:

  • balancing professional achievements and personal life

  • recruiting and retaining the talent you need to scale

  • the critical role of feedback, which Doc calls "the breakfast of champions"

  • the role of trust in effective leadership

  • synchronizing individual team member advancement with organizational goals

Doc also offered some against-the-grain thoughts on the talent shortage, some of which you can hear in this clip.

You can find the interview on your favorite podcast app or by following this link:

If you want to dig into this issue further, you can obviously reach out to him, and if you're shy, check out Doc's superb book, 𝘓𝘦𝘢𝘥𝘦𝘳𝘴𝘩𝘪𝘱, 𝘏𝘢𝘱𝘱𝘪𝘯𝘦𝘴𝘴, 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘗𝘳𝘰𝘧𝘪𝘵: 12 𝘚𝘵𝘦𝘱𝘴 𝘵𝘰 𝘢 𝘏𝘪𝘨𝘩 𝘗𝘦𝘳𝘧𝘰𝘳𝘮𝘢𝘯𝘤𝘦 𝘉𝘶𝘴𝘪𝘯𝘦𝘴𝘴. It's terrific.
