Startups are akin to IPL Teams at the beginning of a season. The teams should have a balance of good bowlers, batsmen and all-rounders. They should have a good Captain to provide leadership and vision. To bring out the best in each player and the team, you need a good Coach. Just as a good coach can differentiate between a winning and a losing team, the right coach can differentiate between a startup success or a failure.
Startups put their best business ideas and try to scale their business rapidly. They get so wrapped up in their "Playbook", meaning their business plan that they lose sight of a few essential aspects of their business that contribute to its downfall. That is where I can step in and lend objectivity. Start-up founders treat their business like their babies and invest it with a certain degree of baneful emotional attachment.
As a coach, I can lead startups out of such emotional traps, lend objectivity, and enhance their performance. I can facilitate team building and help teams gel well, and have them stay focused on the company's goals and overall objectives.
Team building being my critical core competency, I can critically impact how early-stage companies blend talent and thinking to form effective teams. I can play an essential role in evaluating individual leaders and determining their strengths and weaknesses more readily than anyone inside the leadership team.
I am trained to work with all different leaders to bring out their best qualities to address everything from delegation to conflict management. It is common knowledge that 8 out of 10 startups fail within the first 18 months. Therefore, companies must have a plan to handle and react to inevitable changes. I use objectivity to anticipate change and recommend timely remedial measures to circumvent change.
Like IPL teams, startup companies are trying to win all the time. They carefully design each game, assess their talent pool, and make substitutions. As a coach, I can be at the heart and soul of a strong team, guiding both the individual players and the team on the path to success. Given a chance, I could genuinely prove to be a game-changer.
