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.

About the Author

As a newly single father of two from MI, he struggled to start over as a paint contractor in FL, going door to door. His situation was so bad, even the IRS had mercy on him.

 Feeling completely hopeless, he remembered the story of King Solomon praying for wisdom. Could it be so easy? 

He felt he had absolutely nothing to lose. So, as a bankrupt, divorced, high school dropout, single father of 2 young kids, now living 1250 miles away from all friends and family, started to pray for wisdom.
 And while he continues to wait for the wisdom to arrive, what did come was an insatiable desire to learn and read books… 
Thanks to God for giving him the burning passion to read books, and attend seminars, (oh and winning the wife lottery) he not only cracks the success code and overcomes the struggle, but also streamlines his painting business in less than 3 years, published a how to book, then sold the company. Now he leads a business coaching company for painting contractors so he can help other businesses, like yours, to do the same. Hear more... Or
