5 Traits of Successful Entrepreneurs That Make Them Candidates For Delegation

      

Most leaders would agree with this statement: “If I could spend half as much time on half as many things, I would be twice as effective.”

Entrepreneurs and leaders feel an overwhelming need to have a strategic way to delegate that involves more than just a resource to delegate to. They also benefit from guidance and access to systems that help them delegate effectively and consistently.

Finding the Still Water

LEARN | TWELVE, JUNE 2019 

 

I recently listened to a lecture about turmoil in life. We all have it. We all hate it.

The person giving the lecture walked into the room with a glass of water. He proceeded to shake the water in a circular motion within the glass explaining that this is how most of us feel - how most of our brains are functioning right now. Constantly thinking…constantly juggling a million priorities…. constantly adding to our lengthy list of what’s next and all of the things we have to do to get there.

This constant stress can be felt both personally and professionally. “I’m one big sale from stability in my life” OR “I just need help in these areas to achieve my goals” OR “If my children would only listen to THIS, things would be so much easier!”.

Our TOP 3 tips to clear your bottlenecks around delegation!

1 - Start small, build confidence.  Focus on compartmentalizing larger tasks and projects into small parts to build your own confidence around delegation. Do you want to hand off your calendar scheduling?

 

Don’t get overwhelmed by the big picture of doing so; instead segment it out.  Ask yourself which part of my schedule could be most easily delegated or automated? Perhaps a first small step is to deploy a scheduling tool for your internal team meetings only.  Just this shift alone will help you add framework to your day by creating specific blocks of time you are available to meet, and it takes the back and forth out of when to meet.   Grab the small wins! It still equates to time saved, and you’ll build confidence in this phase.

4 Ways To Declare Your Independence

All entrepreneurs can remember back to the days when we had a 9-5 job, a boss, a steady paycheck and lots of PTO.  We left that life behind in search of independence, risk with reward, and a spirit of “why can’t I?” So how is it that now instead we work 7-7, have to manage complicated staff relations ourselves, our paycheck is variable, and PTO is laughable at best?  This “job” that we have created for ourselves is compromising our independence and what we fought so fiercely for.

How to Match the Pitch to the Deliverable.. At Scale

You know the game.  You hire an “expert” external resource to fill a gap, help you accomplish something important by way of their expertise, only to find out that the pitch doesn’t match the deliverable.  So where is the disconnect? I believe it comes down to one thing: Solid Process. Lack of process is chaos.  Lack of process holds us back from differentiating ourselves and most importantly, it keeps us from becoming a scalable company.

Know Yourself, Know Your Worth

LOVE | TWELVE, FEBRUARY 2018

Lots of businesses are born from great ideas, or rather, from a person’s confidence to pursue that idea, and their ability to know themselves and those around them during the process. Some entrepreneurs feel weighted because they try to take on too much and feel guilty when they don’t succeed at everything. 

 

The truth is, you won’t personally be good at everything -- but the good news is that you don’t have to be. The key: your actions should be louder than your words.
