In all my years of coaching small business owners and thought leaders, the phrase I hear most often is “I wish I had a mini-me.” This may come as a shock to you, but another version of you is not the solution to your problems. 

When preparing for your first or next hire, it’s important to know yourself as a leader to know how another team member can complement your leadership style. 

In this episode, you’ll hear:

  • How adding a new team member can springboard your business to the next level.
  • How identifying important business outcomes helps with onboarding and delegation.
  • About hiring “gauntlets” and why hiring for culture always trumps hiring for proficiency.

It’s challenging to build a team you can trust. If you need help learning what you need in a new hire to have a longterm collaborative fit, save your seat for The Momentum Method™, a no-fluff program intensive on how to create teams you can trust to build your business fast while serving as a leader worth trusting.
