Rockefeller Habits for Passionately Pursuing Business Growth
Recently at the Colorado Capital Conference, award-winning entrepreneur Ryan Martens, co-founder of Rally Software, shared one of his secrets to growth and success, "We use the Rockefeller Habits." From my experience as a business coach, I know these habits are very helpful. That's why we're using them in my new company, Radish Systems, together with the 'Pursuit of Passionate Purpose' success model.
Practical Pointers on 3 of 10 Best Habits of Fast Growing Companies
1. CORE IDEOLOGIES ARE 'ALIVE' IN THE ORGANIZATION.
CASE STUDY. As we formed Radish Systems, we established and documented our core ideologies including our values, core competencies, passion, purpose, vision, and BHAG. These are posted on our 1-page Strategic Plan which we refer to regularly. We have experimented with different meeting rhythms. While this is still a work in progress, we know that more, regular meetings are helpful. During our annual and quarterly planning sessions we established our priorities, critical numbers, and theme. The biggest challenge has been clarifying the critical number that is relevant and easy for all. While implementing the Rockefeller Habits is a journey or process, it is helping us align, learn, and grow. What has been said before is true, that routine sets you free.
Next month I will cover another set of the Habits.
