Wow, what a year!

HELLO | TWELVE, DECEMBER 2019

Happy Friday and happy end of 2019!  It has been a blessed year for me personally and professionally and as I reflect back I am always filled with nothing but gratitude! 

As you've seen me share, Delegate had 2 big award wins this fall; we ranked #52 on the list of Fastest Growing Companies here in Philly AND, I personally won the Philly Chamber's Small Business Person of the Year Award!  It was one of the highest honors of my life, and my son Nathan was there to share it with me.  He was the star of the night for sure, and was super proud to be part of it.  Even my team, though distributed was sharing in the love and made the sweetest video congratulating me from their home offices across the country

Keeping Your Eye on the Ball

HELLO | TWELVE, NOVEMBER 2019


Happy Friday!  Wow, it has been such a busy fall, right?!  Like head-spinning busy- for me both personally and professionally.  As we've shared, Delegate has won some pretty great awards this fall- we grabbed the #52 spot on the fastest growing companies in Philly (woot!  The Philly 100!!), and I won Small Business Person of the Year with the Philly Chamber (a high honor! for me personally!). 

 

This combined with the challenges of a growing company along with a whole bunch of big shifts in my personal life equals a lot to manage!   With all of this swirling around me, it's hard to stay focused week over week towards the game-changing work. 

 

Below are a few of the strategies I use to keep my eye on the ball:

Make a Commitment to "Good Enough"

HELLO | TWELVE, AUGUST 2019


TGIF, Happy Friday and hello from the coast of North Carolina, where a group from Team Delegate has assembled for our annual retreat. Given that we are a 100% remote, distributed team, this year's retreat is really exciting for us because we have the opportunity to spend face time with the members of our NC contingent of Delegate.

This month I've been thinking a lot about commitment.  It could be because my fiancee and I just added another dog (third!!) to our family that commitment is heavy on my mind!  Or, perhaps it's my own personal evolution of hanging in there even when things are not "perfect" because I made a commitment to do so.  Either way, honoring our commitments is not always the easy choice, but it is a mindset shift that brings with it personal growth, stability and consistency.

How to Move From Make it Up to Make it Real

HELLO | TWELVE, jULY 2019


TGIF, Happy Friday and happy Independence Day!

As Visionaries, our greatest contribution is our ability to see our companies as globally as possible. We are uniquely able to understand and prioritize the most pressing needs, and then design creative solutions to to move forward.

I don't know how this process typically works for you, but for me it's typically super-organic and instinctual. Once we identify the problem, I give myself the space to creatively think about how we might solve it. Or sometimes, I'm not even thinking about it at all, and the answer suddenly just comes to me. What a feeling, right? :)

The challenge then lies in how to take this idea and model it, build it, test it and roll it out. This is where our team can become a true complement to our abilities. I follow a simple process to make my ideas real:

How to Take a Sabbatical From Your Business

HELLO | TWELVE, jUNE 2019

TGIF, Happy Friday! I am back in the office this week, fresh off a 3 week sabbatical-- my first! It was quite detoxifying and I am happy to report it was also a success. Thanks to a lot of planning, delegation and accountability, I was able to completely step away from running my business for three whole weeks and watch it run without me... and nothing blew up! It was divinely indulgent. Want to do the same?

Below are my tips to make this happen:

Too Busy to Grow?

HELLO | TWELVE, january 2019

 

TGIF, Happy Friday welcome to a shiny new quarter! A client once said to me, "If I could spend half as much time on half as many things, I would be twice as effective." This thought while profound, is a trend we see over and over again in our work. The endless wheel-spinning of urgent but lower-value work distracts us, especially in times of growth it becomes amplified because our time is not just focused on innovating but on delivering.

Too Busy to Grow and Thrive?  How to Move From Reactive Wheel-Spinning to Proactive Growth

Have you ever thought:  If I could spend half as much time on half as many things, I would be twice as effective”?  Like many of the entrepreneurial leaders we work with, the endless wheel-spinning of urgent but lower-value work distracts and disrupts their ability to focus on their single most valuable contribution to the company. The “I’m just too busy to grow” mindset and feeling of being surrounded by business clutter holds us back from making our ultimate contribution to the world . As leaders, we all have great intentions around our impact and time.  There are many adjustments that we can make in our business and our behavior to move out of a reactive space and into proactive growth.

Too Much Buffering? How to Structure Your Time, Systems and Accountability for Better Focus

The definition of a good Buffer Day is a day focused in preparation for upcoming Focus Days.  True “Buffer” Days are meant to be spent on delegations, putting out fires and working on the business so that when Focus Days come, we have the capabilities in place to truly focus.  Without careful planning though, every day can quickly become a Buffer Day, ever creeping into our focus time.

Growth takes a backseat because the majority of time is spent cleaning up urgent messes rather than focusing generating new revenue.  A friend of mine refers to this place in business as “Marshmallowland;” a place where time stands still and we operate in a chronic state of trying to move forward, but stuck in a sticky, grabby mess that keeps us immobilized and bouncing around endlessly in our business.
