Manage episode 325822300 series 2771508
In this episode we hear about how Alexis started his entrepreneurial journey and how he initially started as a consultant in a large firm, but becoming more aware of the needs of both big and small businesses.
He saw others around him that were considered successful, but weren’t able to spend time with their family and friends.
He created his first company called Spidergap, which creates and runs 360° Feedback assessments that help your employees to take action on personal development. But he found that the products and services weren’t meeting the needs of the market as much as he expected and the company was not able to scale up and grow.
Taking what he learned thus far, he created another company called AirManual which helps companies to document processes and procedures to make management more effective and easier.
He was determined to figure out a way to have more personal time for his family by having a business that runs more effectively.
Alexis then explains how he built a team and the problems he had initially because he didn’t have the onboarding processes and procedures in place to help train new employees and make them feel supported.
After the onboading process was created, he was able to have great retention for the new hires.
Next, we learn about how he was told that he would never be a good manager by someone before he became an entrepreneur, and how he proved them wrong by developing his staff to become great managers themselves.
We end the conversation hearing about how the startup business changed since he launched his first company.
