Tony Robbins says, ‘changing an organisation, a company, a country – or a world – begins with the simple step of changing yourself’.
The same holds true for growth.
If you’re a Founder or a Business Owner with a goal of growing your business or making more impact, your results depend on one thing: your growth factor.
Your Growth Factor is the level, rate and consistency of your personal growth.
Eunoia Mindset, which is a personal development company that helps purpose-driven Founders create more impact, say that to grow their reach, revenue and impact every Founder needs to grow in 3 core ways.
Increasing their Capacity: Creating physical, mental and emotional space for the growth ahead. Too often Founders try to grow from a space of overload & overwhelm & then feel frustrated when they fail to hit their targets. Before you plant a seed, you must prep the soil!
Unlocking Clarity: Upleveling their vision and utilising strategic frameworks to translate ‘dreams’ into projects that are then chunked into micro-focuses. When you do this consistently you build effortless momentum, which breeds organic motivation & growth.
Up-levelling Character: Shifting habits and behaviours, in order to grow into the person their vision and business need them to become. This last challenge is about utilising the power of the unconscious mind to cement lasting change, using a technique Eunoia call Identity Sculpting.
When these 3 growth journeys align, a Business Owner begins to operate from a space of Flow and taps into their ‘Genius Zone’, where they experience a higher level of focus, freedom and fulfilment.
Founded by Performance & Leadership Coach, Sophia Barros, and RTT Therapist & Clinical Hypnotherapist, Zoi Saad, Eunoia Mindset brings the latest techniques in therapy, neuroscience, positive psychology, and leadership coaching together for a holistic approach to business.
“Our focus is not solely on helping you improve your business in a traditional sense (though we may discuss topics like HR, systems, and business plans). Our mission is to support founders in achieving success and growth – without sacrificing their own well-being, their relationships or their authenticity,” states Zoi.
According to Verne Harnish, author of Scaling Up, up to 72% of business owners will experience mental-health issues like depression, anxiety & burnout. In a recent Fortune Magazine article, 30% of start-ups who failed to make it past year 3, said it was because of the emotional challenges that come with running a business.
“Things like loss of passion, lost focus and burnout are serious hurdles and risks for any business.” states Sophia “but they are potentially deadly in businesses where the Founder is still responsible for revenue, sales and growth!”.
The good news is that the team have helped countless Founders make the transition from Chaotic Start-Ups where they’re wearing all the hats and feeling trapped, to Sustainable Impact-Driven Businesses, where they have support and the space to utilise their strengths & superpowers, to drive growth & bring about positive change.
“At Eunoia, we are committed to the idea that social impact and small businesses have the power to transform the world,” says Zoi. “Every time someone creates a business, that business lights a flame of hope for people, creating opportunities and planting seeds of possibility. That’s why we’re so passionate about supporting Founders.”
Offering a range of services, including their Authentic Impact Mastermind, retreats, and team workshops, everything the Eunoia team do focuses on bringing therapy and coaching together to help business owners manage the emotional and mental challenges that come with being a Founder – without losing drive.
Their goal is to help each Founder elevate their resilience, develop self-leadership and unlock clarity and momentum – even in uncertain times.
When Founders operate from their genius zone, building a life of freedom, focus and fulfilment become so much easier.
“The other benefit”, Sophia adds, “is that when a Founder is operating from a space of leadership, calm and clarity, their team resonates at a similar level. So many businesses spend thousands to work on ‘culture’, not realising that in small-medium sized businesses, the culture is always set by them!”
