Good afternoon  ,

When you hire employees, the whole idea is to get more done with less of your personal effort - right? Whether it's turning wrenches, selling your product/service, or dealing with suppliers, that work should get done with little if any direct effort from you.

You want your time free to do executive work - considering and planning new business directions, new markets, and other strategies to keep your company healthy and growing.

An important principle in leadership is that someone else should be doing  everything  and anything that someone else can do.

Here's David Finkel, CEO of Maui Mastermind, with three good tips on how to help employees manage themselves. Save your time and energy for the important work that only you can do. 

In addition to freeing your time for the things you need to be doing, this helps your people develop into leaders themselves - something every business leader should strive for. When your people develop into leaders, they can lead themselves to handle their business competently. When the time comes for them to hire people to support them, they're ready to lead a department.

When you're directly assigning work to be done, make it clear exactly what you want done, by when, and of course keep notes to remind yourself what you've assigned. Then let the person responsible for the task manage his or her own time, communication, and other resources to get it done. Trust me - they'll get better at it.  A nd trust them - that's how they get better!

That's the general idea - David fleshes it out here.

Where are Your Best  Coaching Prospects?

Is a shortage of prospects who need and can pay for your services holding you back from attaining your business goals?

When you join Smart Money Network's  Business Accelerator Program, here's what we do for you:

We help you make your LinkedIn Profile Page a magnet for the people you need to talk with.

Automatically  and invisibly to you, we send LinkedIn connection invitations , coming from  you  of course, to 100 or so of your best prospects every day. To identify those prospects manually, you'd spend many hours each day. Instead of that, our specially-designed software searches out the  few thousand among  LinkedIn's hundreds of millions of members  who match the profile you tell us to search for. 

Then we send welcome messages  from  you   to the 15-30 percent of them (my own experience is currently 27%) who accept your invitation and connect.

We begin a "drip" campaign, again coming from you. In this campaign we give...give...give...and then ask. No pitches!

About John

Throughout a career spanning over 45 years my management style has been one of building teams to bring several competent people together to focus on a common objective. I noted early in my career that, in most organizations, there is an enormous amount of time, energy, and effort wasted by people working at cross purposes.

As I transition to life in the Argentine outback, my focus shifts from coaching to helping other business coaches and advisers get their message out to their prospective clients. With my first-hand knowledge of the benefits of effective business coaching, I am uniquely qualified to work with business advisers of all stripes convey their message.
