Do people let you down in work and in life? Do you struggle to get things done through others? Are you overwhelmed because if you want things done right you have to do them yourself?
This may be because you’ve been valuing efficiency and productivity more than relationships. A common issue I see with entrepreneurs and CEOs who are overwhelmed is that they focus more on getting things done than developing people. It seems logical to just do things ourselves when the to-do list of our business is filling up. This is encouraged by beliefs like “if you want something done, you have to do it yourself” or “it takes too much time to explain something, rather than just do it myself.” The problem is that we never got off the busyness crazy train and all paths lead to you having to do more. How exhausting!
We see evidence that relationships actually drive more productivity and efficiency. And if we just spent a little more time coaching, encouraging, and training our people our productivity and therefore our results would explode. Watch this video as I explore this topic and give you some evidence and some tips to change your mindset. Leave me a comment below and I’ll respond.
Here’s to you fostering relationships that help you be more effective!
