Ordinary businesses are content to keep the pace.
Visionary ones set the PACE.
Introducing The PACE Principle
A simplified approach to help time-starved business owners maximize their potential – one step at a time.
The PACE Principle is designed to guide business owners on their journey of becoming more proficient leaders for their business. The model’s structure forms a foundation that EVERY business needs: an owner who leads by being Strategic, Analytical, Efficient, and Influential.
It starts with putting the Customer Experience top of mind...
No matter what product or service your customers come to you for, your real product is the EXPERIENCE your customers have while they receive it. Everything you do, then has to be considered from that perspective.
Which requires a high level of Precision…
How well the business consistently and predictably produces its product or service is Precision.
And a strategy that promotes Alignment to your vision…
When strategy and execution are clearly established and communicated, Alignment is created.
When Customer Experience is the product you care most about, your ability to deliver depends on your level of both Precision and Alignment. Fortunately, those are variables that are totally within your control.
The PACE Principle, when applied to your systems, your financials, your employee management, and every other part of your business, creates a plan you can execute to outpace your competition.
The PACE Principle model begins as a 4-circle Venn model. It's a story about an owner [bottom] with a product/service, and a customer [top] with a need. The owner creates a business [left] that soon requires the help of a team [right] to fulfill the need.
Before long the owner realizes they aren't fully equipped to lead and manage the growth they are creating. The result is often the owner becoming frustrated, and the business becoming stuck, not growing.
It's the intersections within the model that hold the key to you building more precision and alignment in your business. When you learn and become more Strategic and Influential you will build Alignment in your business. When you learn and become more Analytical and Efficient you will build Precision in your business.
