Graham Wong’s journey into entrepreneurship was a dynamic roller coaster, pushing him into various roles. From the hustle and grind to the minutiae of the business, he found himself constantly evolving with the demands of leadership.

Wong discovered the power of “leading from behind,” promoting an open dialogue with his team while setting a clear course for the business. It was a challenging balance to strike — fostering creativity while making tough decisions, but he learned to navigate it with growing confidence.

Wong’s vision for LAUFT was ambitious: a worldwide network of small distributed workspaces offering complete work-life freedom. The immensity of the vision was daunting, but through setting realistic, incremental targets and implementing systems like EOS®, he began to see steady growth.

For Integrator Jesse Sharratt, leadership was a process of learning and adapting. He saw the immense value in coaching and mentoring, focusing on fostering an environment that encouraged creativity and collaboration. Yet he also understood the importance of making difficult decisions.

Sharratt found a balance between collaboration and direction, allowing team members to voice their ideas while guiding the overall trajectory of the business.

To actualize LAUFT’s vision of creating a network of workspaces across the globe that allow for maximum flexibility and freedom, Sharratt began setting realistic targets and measuring progress. His approach fostered a culture of trust and flexibility, empowering the team to balance their personal life and work commitments.
