CEO-to-CEO: The Math of Recruiting

Hi-5 ABA Franchising ABA therapy

Dear CEO:

Alongside our roles as visionary/architect for our businesses, and the necessity of full-scope oversight, talent acquisition is a primary function for every CEO.

Building an organization is fundamentally about developing an environment conducive to the growth of personnel who provide goods and services to clients and customers.

The better the environment, which includes recruiting, training, and career-nurture, the longer the right people will want to stay with you and help you to build. An ideal, harmonious work culture is one in which employers and employees collaborate to help one another grow.

CEO-to-CEO: EXPANDING QUALITY SERVICES

Quality Services

Providing quality services to a growing number of people requires a dynamic perspective which incorporates ongoing development of systems and personnel.

For perspective, let’s consider a business model with which are all generally familiar—a school. We can make it a private school in a growing small town which has more would-be students than other available schools to accommodate them.

The owner (or principal) of the school is tasked with a two-variable goal—(1) provide quality education to (2) as many students as practicable. Expanding quality services in an ABA practice (or any other service business, for that matter) involves the same two variables—quality services to as many clients as is practicable. Calculating what that equation looks like is part science, and part art.

CEO to CEO – GROWING PAINS

Every entrepreneur wants to grow. Growth is the natural order of things. As the saying goes—“if we aren’t growing, we’re dying.”

But growth involves suffering today for a payoff tomorrow. “Growing pains” aren’t reserved for awkward teenagers who suddenly gain six inches in six months. Every person, project, family and organization suffers discomfort, dislocation, angst, and all the emotional stress which attends growth.

And the pain is NOT evenly distributed. The mouth can enjoy the whole cherry pie, and a half gallon of ice cream on top. The stomach has another experience. The heart, liver, pancreas, and arteries do too. I can bring in $20 million in new business tomorrow—delicious to me, but my team then has to absorb and digest all that fresh catch.

Fauquier Times Features Hi-5 ABA Founders

Hi-5 ABA founders, David and Stephanie Maddox, had the pleasure of meeting with Anita Sherman of the Fauquier Times. Anita wrote an article about Hi-5 ABA/ABC Behavior’s new clinic and sensory gym.  The piece also covers the vision and heart behind the organization.

Anita wrote, “Maddox often gets teary when describing her work, which isn’t without its challenges. But she said she’s found the rewards outweigh the risks.” The Fauquier Times is an easy way to follow events in our rural county, and we appreciate its article about our growing business.

Faith and Vision: The Story of Hi-5 ABA

“What do you have faith and vision for?” is a common question from David and Stephanie Maddox, the founders of Hi-5 ABA.  It is the question that built their success as the Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Franchising company.  Their story is unique and has helped hundreds of special needs children in the US and around the world.

It starts with David, as the eldest of eight children, being told since childhood, “impact the world,” by a mother who was one of the first women to graduate from law school in the US and the first woman on Capitol Hill to run a Senator’s office, and a father who was an Attorney in Virginia.  Changing the world was dinner table conversation.  David went on to build real estate businesses in the US, own investments and plant churches in Africa.  Yet he still wanted more.  The vision to impact the world was growing but the “how?” wasn’t fully revealed until he met Stephanie.
