MBA1412 Have a Team But Still Overwhelmed? How To Assign Ownership + Free Ride Friday

You’ve made the hires. You’ve got a great team ready to rock.

So why are you still overworked?

One of the trickier aspects of leading a growing business is handing off responsibility to new team members. For some of us, it’s hard because we don’t want to surrender control. But sometimes, we’re so eager to get things off our plate that we hand things off without making sure our new hire can take them on.

And yes, this is one of those “we’ve made this mistake ourselves” episodes.

We manage a remote team of dozens. As the team has grown, Omar has finally gotten used to passing the reins to others — even to feel liberated by it. But every so often, we find that a new hire can’t complete tasks because we haven’t prepared them adequately. 

It can be difficult to see your day-to-day operations from the perspective of a newcomer.

Today, we’ll share the 3 things every new employee needs to truly take ownership of their goals, and be truly autonomous. By empowering your team to fly free, you don’t just relieve yourself of extra work: you make your employees happier, more motivated, and more productive. 

All that, and it’s FREE RIDE FRIDAY!!! Click Play!
