Do Your Crew-Leaders Call You Too Often?

Hi there, Greg here from DYB Coach.

I wanted to share a little story with you, what my mentors have taught me about dealing with an employee that might reach out to you, and kind of push off decision making to you too frequently.

So, there are employees that don’t call you enough, and there are the ones that call you too much, and the ones that are just right.

How do you deal with guys or girls that are calling you too frequently?

Here is how you do it but it takes a little bit of time, so you have to be patient with it;

If someone calls you and asks you a ridiculous question, about something they should know the answer to, respond to them with, “I don’t know, what do you think?” and listen for the answer.

Keep doing that, over and over again.

If you have a suggestion, say “That sounds like a great idea, or you can try this, which one of those things do you think would work better?”

Continue doing this for 30 days and watch how much it would change for you.

It’s one of those things that you just have to give them the confidence to make the decisions and let them know that it is okay if they make a mistake

Try it out, I hope it works for you.
