About the ‘Grow Your Perfect Business’ series
Welcome to the the Grow your Perfect Business Series from The Site Shed.
This series has been methodically planned to help you through the various stages of business in an order at which (in my experience) they are likely to be relevant.
The whole idea is to leave you with a solid roadmap that you can customise to your business accordingly.
Why? You may ask…
Well quite frankly, in my years of running businesses and speaking with hundreds of amazing business owners, there is one thing that I’ve picked up on that is consistent across the board.
No matter how big or small the business, no one has all of the answers.
Now don’t for a second think that I do…
What I’m trying to communicate is that there is a lot of moving parts to a successful business and getting clarity around them will 100% serve you at some point.
Albeit, perhaps not all at once.
However at some stage, you’ll likely need to address one of the topics that we cover in this series. So hopefully, when that (inevitably) happens, you’ll have a basic understanding of what’s going on.
We’ll be covering a large number of topics, many of which are well and truly ‘above my pay grade’. So as always, I’ve recruited the expertise of specialised collaborators that can shed some light on their area of expertise.
As mentioned already, I don’t have all the answers and I’ve created this framework off my own experiences.
If you have feedback, suggestions, criticism, or praise, please let us know, so we can take it into consideration.
Part two of ‘The Grow Your Perfect Business Series’.
This is – Discover the ultimate business weapon, ‘Personality Profiling’
**Before we start, if you like to learn more about the personality profiling, here are some resources for you.
- Episode TSS054 of The Site Shed podcast – Ever wondered why you annoy people so much? [LINK]
- Personality quiz (from Personality Plus) – [LINK]
- Discover your appreciation/ love language quiz (what makes people really tick) – [LINK]
Two simple books changed my life forever. And as a result, they are the two books that I’ve gifted the most over the years.
– Personality Plus, by Florence Littauer and,
– The 5 Love Languages, by Gary Chapman
Thankfully, we’re all different.
I couldn’t imagine living in a world that had two of me in it. I’m short tempered, I’m bossy, you can’t tell me anything and if you interrupt me while I’m ‘in the zone’, you’ll know about it.
As a young 20 something year old, living in Manly on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, I can confidently say I was completely arrogant and I didn’t really care that people knew it.
It wasn’t until I started venturing into business that my friend and colleague (Peter) pointed out to me the facts and recommended that I did something about it. Or should I say, he insisted that if I wanted to get anywhere, I needed to do something about it. You see, luckily for me, Peter and I had very similar personalities, however unlike me, Peter (15 years my senior) didn’t have anyone tell him at my age what he told me.
I am by no means the personality profiling guru, so I asked Peter to step in and answer some questions that I had in relation to personality profiling that was far beyond my pay grade.
If you like what Peter had to say, you can check him out further at his Leadership Consulting business, www.LeadershipDynamics.com.au, or his online leadership mentoring program www.Leading4Growth.com.au
