Allison Interviews Jan Arnold on How to Scale a Business Of Any Size or Model
The Big Shift in Building a Strong Team to Grow your BusinessMake the shift from hiring strategies to aligning yourself with a strong and talented team you love, or what I call Your Alliance. If you do, you will make the big shift from entrepreneur to 7-figure enterprise. And, I guarantee that you will hire right with my S.C.A.L.E Formula. There is a difference between a group of employees and an alliance. If you desire a team you love to be around, then you have to align your goals from a strategic vision to leadership and cash flow with the right talent.
It begins and ends with building an alliance, in order to build a strong and talented team. One of the most difficult (and most critical) parts of being a leader, is finding talent and putting that talent in the right roles. The roadmap is laid out in front of you, but first there are 3 things you need to know about talent alignment.

3 Things You Need to Know About Talent AlignmentThe S.C.A.L.E Formula– Step #3: Build an Alliance. Just like the thousands of entrepreneurs that I have worked with, you need to know about talent alignment. The massive success that I am talking about, scaling your business to make the big shift from entrepreneur to 7-figure enterprise, depends on building a strong and talented team. Here are my 3 things you need to know about talent alignment, so you end up with a team you love to be around.
1. Aligning Talent with a Strategic VisionA Strategic Vision is meant to be implemented, from the bottom to the top, from the foundation to the big picture. An effective leader will align a strong and talented team towards achieving the bottom line – a strategic vision. To make the big shift from entrepreneur to 7-figure enterprise, you have to build an alliance and scale a team that aligns with your goals. That means evaluating the strength and weaknesses of everyone, maximizing engagement and productivity, and aligning human capital to manifest the big picture. All the above will make your strategic vision for your business a reality. That is why the first thing you need to know about talent alignment is how it aligns with that strategic vision. The answer is it should align with every team member and every step forward, with every task from the short-term to the long-term. If you align right, you will be left with a strong and talented team you love to be around!
2. Aligning Talent for the FutureYou have to plan for the future and for success. An effective leader will align a strong and talented team that favors advancement and stability. If you want to make the big shift from entrepreneur to 7-figure enterprise, talent alignment has to go beyond planning for today, even tomorrow. How will you plan appropriately for succession and develop talent from within? Massive success is both long-term and exponential. What that means is that talent alignment has to encompass finding, acknowledging and engaging the right talent. Building Your Alliance requires that you setup pathways for your team to grow with you as you scale your business. If you do, you will develop a strong and talented team you love to be around, and who will want to be around you for years to come.
3. Aligning Talent with PerformanceI call this Your 360-Degree View. The last thing you need to know about talent alignment is how to see the gaps in talent and fill the gaps with the right talent. How else can you assess short and long-term performance? Talent is nothing within performance. Evaluate accordingly. Talent alignment is also about identifying and addressing concrete strengths and weaknesses. In fact, a recent poll of US employees revealed that nearly 65% valued consistent feedback. If you want to be an effective leader, with a strong and talented team you love to be around, then align talent with performance. Real-time feedback is key. Evaluate, Engage, Escalate, Repeat. Make the big shift from entrepreneur to 7-figure enterprise, and build an alliance that shifts with you! With an alliance, I guarantee that you will open up a whole new world that will scale your business to new heights.
