Are there days when you think your team is constantly letting you down or that nobody can get things right? 

Then, have you ever thought that the problem could actually be not your team – but you? 

It’s really challenging to look at yourself in the mirror and discover your flaws. But you have to learn to get real and honest with yourself about how you’ve contributed to the problems you’re seeing within your team or in your business.

In today’s episode, I’m going to share with you these 5 burning questions to help you along this journey of transformation.

Change has to happen and it has to start with you. Then you’ll create this beautiful domino effect that will transform your team and your business in the process. 

In this episode, you will hear:

  • The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek (and how nobody can enter this cave on your behalf)
  • How to know if the problem is you or the team and identifying the symptoms
  • Why growing a team is like entering a relationship
  • Why people are resistant to improvement and how personality plays a role
  • Don’t confuse process-problems with people-problems.
