We hear ALL the time how team members feel under-utilized and over-criticized. We’ve been there ourselves too. It sucks and most develop a tough skin to “put up with it” and keep their mouth shut, or venture out to work on their own.
The majority of entrepreneurs and small business owners got there by accident. This means leaders are vastly unequipped and accidentally don’t set their team up for success.
Even leaders who have great intentions and are doing a lot of personal work and programs to try to improve are not exempt.
Maybe you’ve… done a bunch of personal development work to be a better leader, but feel lost “managing” a team – how are people able to create and deliver the services/products, grow the business, lead the team, AND delegate and manage their team members’ work and performance?! (the secret is they’re not doing it successfully!)
Maybe you’ve… found a great business coach or some biz besties and they’re wonderful to jam on ideas and strategy, but if you’re going to scale you need a partner in growth. Someone who is IN it with you. A second brain who can dig in and be there with you to get you where you want to go.
Maybe you’ve… brought on an OBM or Operations Manager, but they’ve never actually run a business before and their knowledge is just a little behind of what you need. They’re great for keeping the trains running, but overwhelmed when mapping out a new set of tracks. And, what you really need next is to discover some new pathways.
Whatever your specific situation is, when it comes down to it… you have a gap and you don’t know how to fill it.
You want that unicorn partner who has been there, done it, and will be side-by-side with you to get to the next level.
