Today on ScaleUp Radio, we're diving into the universe of business systems and company culture with Paul Harris, the innovative founder of Coacto. The company specializes in implementing Salesforce systems as a core hub to drive efficiency for various businesses, a game-changing approach that you definitely want to hear more about.
Paul’s journey in the Salesforce space is a masterclass in smart growth and strategic decision-making. Starting Coacto in 2016, now with 15 team members, Paul has successfully worked with a wide range of small-to-medium enterprises. He didn't just help them integrate systems; he revolutionized their entire operations. Paul places a premium on hiring the right talent, an approach that has not only helped him scale but also create a positive company culture that thrives on teamwork and excellence.
If you’ve ever wondered how to create a work culture that reciprocates loyalty, you don't want to miss what Paul has to say. He is a believer in leading by example, praising in public and counselling in private, and most importantly, in active listening. His philosophy is simple: take care of your team, and they'll take care of the customers.
In today's episode, we also touch on Paul’s ambitious plans for the future, strategies for effective hiring, and the books that have influenced his leadership style. So buckle up, as we delve deep into systems, people, and the sheer mechanics of scaling up a business. Paul Harris is here to guide us through it all.
