Meilin was always asking, “How can I help my company grow faster?” She was successful by most measures but had higher growth ambitions.
As her CEO Coach, I helped focus her efforts and energies on an often-overlooked area for many CEOs. This area enables scaling and enables the CEO to manage their team more effectively — values.
Most CEOs have corporate values but don’t use them as the ultimate way to install a belief system – a way for every employee to focus on the most critical issues for the company.
Meilin and I worked on making the values core to the thinking and speaking of the management team. Once the management team adopted these values and started speaking about them in their regular communications, we knew that we were on our way to ensuring that every employee “lived” the values.
While values are not the only thing a company needs to grow fast, they are critical to its success. Meilin’s company is now growing over 100%.
