Show Notes

  • We start off asking “how do I get ahead?” and progress to “how do I help my team get further ahead?”
  • In order for us to accomplish our vision, we need a team.
  • Most entrepreneurs suck at hiring and bringing people on board.
  • Rule #1: Fit, not Skill. We tend to look for people with skill sets but skill is only the beginning of the conversation.
  • Does the person you are considering align to your vision or to the job you are trying to fill?
  • You have to make sure that the people you bring on board share your values, otherwise you are going to butt heads.
  • Does the person you are considering have an attitude of success?
  • Prospective hires have to be able to fit into the environment while having chemistry with the rest of the team. Consider the fit into the team as a whole.
  • Rule #2: Hiring, not Interviewing. Create a hiring process based on practical exercises to determine fit instead of asking just questions.
  • Have your prospective hire do the job and then assess the fit. Before you provide an offer, you should already know they can do the job.
  • Rule #3: Leadership, not Management. Have you ever tried to manage a relationship instead of lead?
  • A low challenge and low support leader will create a culture of apathy and low expectations.
  • A high challenge and low support leader demands a lot from their team but provides little support to get the job done.
  • A low challenge and high support leader is a protector. The tend to do things for their employees instead of letting them learn how to do it on their own.
  • A high challenge and high support leader is a liberator, they bring out the best in the team and enables them to grow.
  • These three rules are an equation that leads to a powerful culture and a powerful business.
  • If we exist as powerful entrepreneurs, our employees can’t help but exist as powerful people.
