Fortune / Gazelles International Scaling Up Summit – St. Louis 2017

This was my third Scaling Up Summit and well worth attending – for the great learning, community and inspiration of proven growth tools to share with my clients. It is exciting to be a part of the Gazelles International coaching community and bring additional resources to support high growth companies. Let me share some of the highlights from the Summit that captured my interest. 

There is a new breed of company coming to the forefront. The “Exponential Organization” uses the power of technology to scale up, and has the ability to capture much larger markets with new ways of thinking. Change is constant, but the rate of change is increasing, so how to you keep up? ”The answer is the Exponential Organization.”

Digital transformation has changed how a company evolves. No longer is human power the answer (more people, more productivity), but instead, accelerating technologies are what brings a company to it’s goal at a pace that will outperform others who continue to move on a linear course, rather than a hyper-accelerated course.

The second book that inspired me is titled "Everybody MATTERS - The Extraordinary Power of Caring for Your People Like Family."

Inside these pages, powerful data is provided on the strong financial results that can be had when you invest in your people and community. Bob Chapman sums it up: “Everyone wants to do better. Trust them. Leaders are everywhere. Find them. People achieve good things, big and small, every day. Celebrate them. Some people wish things were different. Listen to them. Everybody matters. Show them."
