It discusses the point at which a product takes off, an idea goes global or at which massive change takes place. Amongst other things, it discusses The rule of 150 (148 was the exact number). This rule comes from research done into the size of remote tribes in jungles all over the world. When a tribe gets to an average of 148 people, it's growth stops or the tribe splits into two. The reason is that the number of social interactions that a human being can retain, with any quality, is 150. After that number, quality of interaction cannot be retained.
Now for a martial arts academy, this is where it gets interesting.
I am currently business coaching 8 martial arts academy owners. I am also in constant contact with about 10 others. A common theme is that the one man band approach has its limit at the 150 student mark. After that, the owner must systemise to grow. If they try to single handedly grow beyond that, they end up spending mega hours or just stay at their status quo. Mega hours means the ripple effect in other areas of their life.
Put another way, the things you do as the owner of a school of 100 students is MASSIVELY different to the things you do to manage a school of 300.
As we reach our Tipping Point, we need to reinvent our modus operandi.
