On this episode of Grow Your Damn Business!, we have special guest Gatik Chaujer, an expert in business transformation and leadership development. Gatik shares his journey of transformation, starting from 11 years ago when he realized the need to focus on specific areas rather than claiming to be good at everything.
He now centers his work around four pillars
- Leadership team alignment
- Leadership development
- Women professional development
Gatik also discusses the next steps for his business, which include further emphasis on top leadership alignment, storytelling, and diversity and inclusion, especially as they venture into new markets. However, Gatik acknowledges the challenges of adapting to a changing market and admits that he doesn’t have a clear plan yet. Throughout the episode, Gatik opens up about the doubts and challenges he faced while scaling his business. One of the biggest challenges was finding the balance between getting things done and scaling, as he had to let go of tasks he was skilled in and start doing things he wasn’t as comfortable with. He also expresses fear and uncertainty about running the business aspect of scaling, as he was more comfortable with the training side.
