Do This Instead of Trying to Control Every Aspect of Your Company
Hi there, Greg here from DYB Coach, and I have a little confession to share with you today, about my personal growth and my business.
One of the things that I had to do in order to achieve the goals I have accomplished and continued to grow with is controlling the chaos –controlling the controllables.
And here is how you can do it too…
Develop Your Trust in Your Staff
So, when I first started out, I felt like I had to have my hands in everything.
I had to help everyone make decisions, and it’s really not the right way of thinking when you own a company.
What you need to do is develop your trust in your staff, and train them, so that you know that they make the decisions that you would, in your absence.
Invest In Personal Development
Another thing that is really important for your business development is your personal development.
This involves learning new strategies, and different tools that you can use to improve your business and working with other people who are smarter than you, learning about the way that they run their businesses successfully and peering in on that.
Join a Mastermind Group
So, one of the opportunities that we provide here at DYB is a Mastermind Group.
In a Mastermind Group, you collectively get together with up to 10 other owners of businesses, normally they are all in kind of a similar size, sale, and revenue amount to you; sometimes there are a few that are higher.
We speak about topics, we learn about employment strategies, hiring employees, about finance strategies, marketing strategies –pretty much anything under the sun that has to do with business, and these are my favorites.
I love being a part of them, I love sitting in on them, I love hearing what other people are doing, and it has really helped me grow tremendously.
Make Time for the Mastermind Group
The biggest thing about a Mastermind Group is that you have to make the time for it, you have to carve it out.
You can’t let your schedule control you, you have to control it!
So, for those of you out there that are kind of stuck in this chaos, just make the plunge, take the time.
Notify your staff that you are going to be unavailable for that time, let them know ahead of time, trust them to make decisions, and give them all the information and the power that they need to do so without you, so you don’t have to worry about it.
Trust me, in the grand scheme of things, working these 60 to 100 hours a week, whatever you are doing out there…you only need 2 hours of time –1 hour or half an hour for prep, an hour for the call and another half hour to digest it.
This strategy is not going to kill your business, it is only going to elevate it.
That’s what it’s done for me, that’s why I am sharing this with you, it’s a confession, I had to learn it the hard way myself, but it has changed my business tremendously and the way that I operate.
I hope this is helpful for you, If you have any questions about the mastermind groups, I am here for you, drop them in the comment section.
