AddingZEROS is a global executive development firm helping CEOs and executives bring clarity to how to lead and manage their organizations. The foundation of teachings and work with clients is based on AddingZEROS’ definition of a successful business. A successful business is Sustainable, Predictable, Stable, Consistent, and has an Emotional Connection. Sustainable, meaning the business should outlast everyone that is in it. Predictable, meaning what actions create what results to predict the future. Stable is all about people. Stability is created through high engagement and high retention of team members. Consistency is what is expected from a company or department. Emotional Connection means that people love who we are and why we do what we do. A company can have great revenue and profit but not be considered successful. This definition was created to help organizations of every size succeed in the business world. “Yes, a company must have revenue and profit in a business; but they are only two measurements of success,” says Monte Wyatt, CEO of AddingZEROS.
Over the past few years, the world has and is still dealing with COVID, retention and recruitment challenges, market fluctuations, and market disruptions. AddingZEROS believes that both leadership AND management in every business are needed more than ever right now. Meaning, the team needs to be led and guided appropriately. Leadership and management are used synonymously, which is believed to be incorrect. Leadership is a behavior and management is a role and responsibility. To ensure they are understood, AddingZEROS defines them separately. Leadership is influenced through passion and focus. Management creates competent and productive teams. Influence through passion and focus creates excitement about who they are, where they are going, and why they are different than everyone else. AddingZEROS helps its clients gain leadership and management skills through the process called “Strategic Thinking, Execution Planning.” Thinking strategically is about seeing the big picture, understanding that everything is connected, and every decision impacts everyone else. Critical thinking (for the big picture) is a skill that everyone can learn. When clients experience “Strategic Thinking, Execution Planning,” they are better able to not only lead and manage their organization better but can adapt to their challenges more effectively.
It is very interesting to hear how every business; industry, and the team think they are unique. “We are different” is a common phrase. In reality, the challenges that most executives and organizations are facing are very similar. How do we get our team more engaged and aligned? How can we grow our business more efficiently? How do we serve our customers more consistently? How can we attract great employees? What can we do to get our employees to perform better? To address those concerns, AddingZEROS believes in Organizational and Executive Development and Discipline. There are five organizational disciplines that it helps instill. They are Strategy, Business Development, People, Execution, and Mission. There are many decisions, ways of working, and actions to take to build organizational discipline. Without organizational discipline, everything is based solely on people. The team certainly doesn’t want robots but helps create the context that the organization must follow to truly be successful. AddingZEROS teaches its clients how to be better executives in their communication, relationships, follow-through, their planning, and implementation. When executives grow, the team grows. When the team grows, the business grows.
AddingZEROS believes that strategic planning no longer works. One must think strategically about how to have leverage, how to scale, and how to market, to maximize the opportunity that was chosen to address in the marketplace. In going through this process, one must balance people and productivity. Too many times, strategic planning solely focuses on the results or financials of the business. Team retention, engagement, and recruitment must also be discussed and acted on. AddingZEROS helps its clients see how everything is connected and how management must be fully engaged themselves.
The facilitator team at AddingZEROS is constantly learning, challenging its thinking, and identifying best practices to help its clients succeed. The team gets the results that the clients are after because AddingZEROS is best in three critical areas. 1) Making complex topics simple. It is natural for humans to overcomplicate and overthink. 2) Teach to think like executives. Most people have never been taught to be an executive. Great executives know how to balance the short term with the long term, teach their team to think, and anticipate needs and roadblocks for success. 3) Facilitate “Strategic Thinking, Execution Planning” process that gets results. AddingZEROS role as a facilitator (not a consultant), is to teach people how to think, act, and influence in every interaction.
AddingZEROS lives by a clear purpose statement and by clear core values. The purpose statement is ‘Transform the Business World by Releasing the Potential of Executives & their Organizations.’ Executives are the ceiling of their team, their team’s behaviors, and their business’s results. When executives are growing in their skill sets and thinking strategically, amazing things happen.
The core values of AddingZEROS drive its behaviors and culture.
