Dear Farillio member,
On 15th October 2020, you asked our brilliant experts Gayle Mann and Lucy-Rose Walker on the Go Far Fast Show:
“You’ve seen loads of businesses achieve success. Is there one thing/group of things that they have in common? What’s their secret sauce – I want to make sure my business has it!"
And Lucy-Rose said:
Be mighty always, Farillio
“For me, it's going to come down to the right leader with the right approach. Ultimately we always used to say at Entrepreneurial Spark, in terms of having a very open policy on who we worked with, that the one thing that we wouldn't negotiate on was that you had to be a coachable entrepreneur who was coming in. That was really our only prerequisite, that you had to be somebody who would take feedback, who's listened to challenge and who was prepared to ask for help and not accept that you had all the answers. For me, that's really the kind of leader that you want at the helm of a business. The ones that we've seen that do really well are the ones who are clear about what is their vision, what are the cultures, what is the mission and how are they going to look after the humans in the business. It's got to be the kind of people-first approach because, if you're looking after the humans, then hopefully there are fewer misadventures and you can grow the business successfully."
