As a company grows, sometimes they achieve hypergrowth. Wait...what in the world does that buzzword mean? Don’t worry...I had to Google it too. It’s defined as achieving a compound annual growth rate of >40%. It’s an exciting, chaotic, and hectic time where everything changes very, very quickly.
Especially company culture.
It’s easy to understand the company mission and vision when you’re a 10-person company and can have a conversation about it. But what about when you’re all of a sudden 500 people across multiple offices? It’s pretty easy for your company culture to fall apart during that transition.
I had the opportunity to chat with Brian Manning about what it’s like to go through hypergrowth. He’s seen it first-hand a few times now and shared some great tips on how to keep your people aligned and maintain a strong company culture as you grow.
We also discussed how important it is to focus on four specific intrinsic attributes so that you can hire people who are capable of growing with the company. To find out what those four attributes are you’ll have to listen to the episode…
But there is so, so much more to this episode so go and give it a listen :)
