Day to Day Tasks Must Be Delegated to Your Team

July 31, 20190 Comments

This article brings up a lot of scenarios with my advanced level clients. Yes, advanced level. After a certain number of years as the “do it all” Entrepreneur, you can miss important warning signs that can prevent burn out, overload, and possibly “going out of business.”

Warning signs that it’s time to build a team that can support the growth of the company are the important signs I’m talking about.

They can include a number of things, i.e. you run out of steam by noon, your customers are not getting the service they deserve, you can’t keep up with administrative tasks, or maybe sales are low because you just can’t get to marketing.

There is a great article called, “6 Habits of True Strategic Thinkers,” by Paul Schoemaker. He says…“If you find yourself resisting “being strategic,” because it sounds like a fast track to irrelevance, or vaguely like an excuse to slack off, you’re not alone. Every leader’s temptation is to deal with what’s directly in front because it always seems more urgent and concrete.”

This is on the mark when it comes to CEO’s and Entrepreneurs who think they can continue to go it alone and grow a business.

It’s time to deal with your business head-on, get strategic, and plan the right way. I really like the step called “Think Critically.” This is a missing component in our (entrepreneurs) development. Especially the part about getting to the “root cause” of the problem. This is very important when planning strategically.

Are you stuck in the day-to-day? If so, get the mentoring you need to take action on the right things and delegate the rest!
