07 Jul Are you the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with?
If you’ve been running your business a little while, one of your biggest risks is to be running it inside an Echo Chamber – where you’re surrounded by people whose beliefs and opinions match your own.
Definition of an Echo Chamber: an environment in which a person encounters only beliefs or opinions that coincide with their own, so that their existing views are reinforced and alternative ideas are not considered.
This feels nice and safe and comfortable – but it isn’t going to grow your business and develop you.
You need a different perspective and viewpoint, new ideas to challenge you and move your business forward.
It’s why it’s so important to consider who you surround yourself with and take advice from.
As Jim Rohn once said, “You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.”
Do you know who your 5 people are? Are they challenging you and developing you? Or does it all feel a little too safe and staid?
In my group coaching programme Business Growth Masterplan, one of the key benefits is not only getting my input, as a business coach with 11 years experience, but also the other business owners in the select group.
If you want to avoid the Echo Chamber and maximise your potential then have a look here and see if you want to be a part of the next face-to-face programme in Stone, Staffordshire, starting in October.
If you’re interested to find out more, you can read the invitation letter here, and if what you read resonates with you, you can apply to join the programme by emailing me at alison@alisonbradford to request an application form.
