Sometimes, it takes just one question to cut through and help us realise that change is needed.
This month, we were fortunate to be selected in a business accelerator bootcamp. It was an amazing opportunity, where we were able to sit with experienced mentors and work through our own business strategy. We are extremely grateful to have heard different perspectives on our business and explore different pathways to grow it.
The program helped us to gain some clarity of what we want to achieve, and where we want to focus. As a result, we are going to be making some exciting changes at The H Factor.
The question that cut through for us was, "Where do you intend to direct your focus in order truly scale your business?"
Since starting our business, we have followed our passion for enabling business leaders and their teams to embrace the human factors in their approach to engaging with each other. From when we (Robyn and Andrew) first met, we've held a common desire to transform workplaces to be places where everyone could feel a sense of fulfilment from what they do.
We decided to work together to codify the factors that made productive business cultures. Our collaboration has become an enduring friendship and we love what we have created. We especially love the relationships we have built along the way; with clients and their teams, our supplier partners, our wider business network, and many others who have supported us so far.
Over the years we have created a number of consulting and training products as well as the H-Me online system. Really, the mentor was asking us through which avenue we would choose to achieve our purpose, and at that moment we realised we needed to narrow our focus.
Four years ago we began the journey of creating the H-Me system. We started that journey because we realised that in order to achieve our purpose we needed to give managers a system, to make it easier to manage their people. We launched the system back in March 2017 and since then we have been further developing the system with many improvements and new features.
Now we are ready to put the system front and centre in our business strategy. The system will be rebranded as The H Factor and we will be retiring the H-Me name. From now, The H Factor is a people management system.
Over the coming weeks we will be changing our website to be fully focused on The H Factor system. We will be actively seeking new partners; other consultants who will be licensed to sell and implement the system with their own clients through following our implementation and support model.
We take this opportunity to thank everyone who has provided feedback and suggestions in helping us build The H Factor, and we invite you to continue to do so. This change will enable us to grow our user base and continue to grow the system's capability.
Nothing will change for our users. Please continue to login via our website.
We will continue to send the weekly Change Agent. We will be free to "call it as we see it", and we'll continue to highlight the need for business leaders to embrace the natural human factors to enable their people to create the extraordinary.
H Agents write about the joys and challenges of entrepreneurship and managing people.
