"Growing the Entrepreneur"
H. Homero Galicia, the El Paso Business Coach, is a business and executive coach that knows first hand how growing a small business can be a lonely and risky venture full of surprises. The challenges of growing a business are often more difficult than those faced when starting the business.
If the business advances through its growth stage toward maturity and sustainability, the entrepreneur has to grow in both management and leadership skills. The increase in the complexity and intensity of demands on the entrepreneur can be so overwhelming that eventually the joy, and the family and personal time needed for a healthy life have been robbed. The survivability of the business is better assured if the owner makes the necessary adjustments to balance the business and personal life so that the business owner's quality of life and business quality grow hand in hand.
To grow a sustainable business, planning and the implementation of an infrastructure are essential. The Ascend: Entrepreneurial Growth approach to business and executive coaching focuses on the development of essential systems and effective management of those systems to prepare the business for growth. The entrepreneur is well served in growing management and delegation skills while not sacrificing the essential entrepreneurial skills to lead the business.
Systems are essential for a well run business, but growth comes through leadership. At Ascend: Entrepreneurial Growth, our aim in "Growing the Entrepreneur" is to enable the business owner to think and act entrepreneurially. The small business owner is trained in the knowledge and skill development to build infrastructure in the business, to manage it effectively and to provide the leadership to the business that it needs to become sustainable and more profitable economically and emotionally.
A viable infrastructure allows the business to operate more efficiently and to respond to surprises with agility. The center of the business is the Entrepreneur, who provides the vision and the leadership to the employees of the business.
