...quit his job by grabbing two beers, deploying the plane’s evacuation slide and sliding down it?
He had enough. He wasn’t going to take it anymore.
Be honest, did you secretly cheer for him or maybe even envy him a little bit?
Have you ever had a moment where you wish you could grab some beers and slide away?
Especially now that you are leading a team?
I am sure you thought hiring a team was going to make your job easier, but it only made it more challenging.
Here’s the thing, leading a team doesn’t have to be hard.
No, seriously. It doesn’t. Let me explain.
Leadership is a learned skillset. It isn’t something some people are born with, and others aren’t.
When you started your business, it was hard work, but you only had to worry about yourself. You learned what you needed to do to ensure your business would be successful. And it was, but you still wanted to grow. The next obvious step was to start to hire a team…to make things easier. How’d that work out?
Not so much, right?
It’s because you now need to learn how to grow your business through other people. People who have thoughts and opinions. People who may have good habits and not-so-good habits.
I am sure you were excited (maybe a little nervous) when you first started to hire your team. But once they started working for you, you began to question your sanity and didn’t understand why it wasn’t as easy as you thought it would be. Here’s why.
We expect our employees to know what to do.
But they don’t. It is our job as leaders to tell our employees what to do. Setting expectations for your team and holding them accountable to those expectations is the foundation for your team’s success. But there’s more.
You need to learn how to communicate with your team effectively.
If you are freaking out a little bit right now, stay with me. These are skills that you can learn. And when you do, I promise, you will start to enjoy your business and your team again.
How do you learn these skills? You can read 1,000 different books on the subject. They exist, and I am sure you’ve read some of them. Here’s the problem.
A book can’t give you the personalized attention you need. Sure, it can give you tips and tricks, but when there isn’t a chapter on ‘Sherry.’ You know - Sherry - the nightmare employee that you should have let go months ago…but haven’t. So what’s a girl to do?
I can help. When you work with me, we are working directly on your leadership challenges. Yes, I give you practical tools to implement. More importantly, I coach you through the drama. I teach you how to deal with employee issues and how to have those tough conversations.
The skills you learn from me will serve you for the rest of your leadership career. And once you learn and implement them, you will be able to focus on what you do best - growing your business.
Leadership is math. When you set up a solid foundation coupled with a healthy leadership mindset, you lose the drama.
Your leadership challenges aren’t going to disappear magically. The longer you wait, the harder it is going to be. Let me help you make your job easier.
