You started your company with a vision, passion, and a small budget and now it has grown to the point where you need to expand. The Bounce Forward program was developed to help small business owners and leaders create an environment of shared knowledge, growth, and accountability.
Our goal is to create a partnership between employers and employees where everyone understands the value of each member of the team, how their collective and diverse experiences can benefit the company, and properly compensating the teams as the business grows.
The Bounce Forward program is an eight-week intensive that focuses on three key principles:
Servant Leadership, Self-Discovery, and Purposeful Engagement.
Building relationships not from the perspective of what the company wants and how to get the employees on board with achieving them, but from the perspective of how to build a relationship or culture that takes advantage of the experiences of team members, how that can be leveraged for the growth of the company, and what that means for the team.
As we work together to build the relationships that lead to a thriving business, we will share the mindsets that brought us to each stage of growth. From understanding how our thoughts lead our reactions to the importance of how those thoughts can affect others. This level of self-discovery is essential to the long-term sustainability of the company because it teaches leaders to be curious about outcomes that were outside of the desired and the perceptions that caused them.
There is a distinct difference between telling your team what to do and engaging them with purpose. Purposeful engagement happens when employers understand team members as individuals, their backgrounds and experiences, goals, and aspirations, and how the company can help them achieve those goals, while adding value to the company.
Even prior to the ever-evolving demands introduced by the pandemic, a 2017 survey found 72% of small business owners felt overwhelmed and believed better delegation and communication were key skills they needed to develop. We believe this moment in time provides the perfect inflection point to reimagine the employer/ employee relationship for the benefit of all.
The Bounce Forward program is such a tool. By helping business owners become more effective leaders, we strengthen their ability to coach their employees to the point of greater responsibilities, revenue generation, and quality of work and life.
