Occupational Therapist and Founding Director of Optimal Living Therapy, Lauren Hart, tunes into the podcast to share her adventure as a business owner. She delves into what it was like starting out, including her expectations, and the reality, as well as the importance of making errors along the way.
She then shares why “people” have been her steepest learning curve, which involved learning her leadership style. This also relates to her approach to managing her team, which includes recognising different sets of skills and how significant systems come into play to support the team. You’ll then hear how she got comfortable with numbers and finances, before we round out with a chat about the NDIS and its complexities.
Topics covered on being motivated as a business owner, leadership styles, and the NDIS:
- Being challenged and stimulated helps the business to grow
- Understanding how you lead, in order to understand how to manage your team and recognise their skill sets
- Future NDIS projections and what she would do if she were CEO
