Kris talks with Eleanor Beaton, founder of Fierce Feminine Leadership, an organization that helps ambitious women develop the confidence, presence, political savvy and influence they need to smash the glass ceiling.

What you'll find in this episode:

  1. One of the most important factors for a leader is embarrassability.
  2. What Eleanor thinks makes a great team. “For me, the thing that threads a team together is this sense of trust in one another.” – Eleanor
  3. A great team is a group of men and women who also challenge our sense of who we are and cause that to expand. I have found as I brought people into my team, that they have their own zones of genius and that allows me to continue to withdraw from certain areas and focus on a smaller area that has broader impact. – Eleanor
  4. Eleanor’s vision.
  5. “I love the men! I coach men! I love the men! But women lead differently.” – Kris Plachy
  6. “Delegation does give you time… eventually.” – Kris Plachy
  7. “As soon as you have the right team, everything is exponentially better.” – Kris Plachy
  8. “To do consistent effort over time, we have to be able to rest and catch our breath through the hard things.” – Eleanor
  9. “Don’t worry if your body shakes, it’s just weakness leaving your body.” - Kris’ yoga instructor

We recently looked at when to fire a team member. This episode is about when NOT to fire a team member. It’s a step by step thought process and it’s NEVER easy.

What you'll find in this episode:

  1. First, you have to do the audit
  2. Second – question your reason. Are you in a position of emotional reaction to what someone is doing?
  3. Third – ask your business. Would you apply this decision to fire this person to anyone else on your team or is it just this person? Would you be consistent.

Finish this sentence – “I will finally feel relief when …” What is that “thing” that, when finally achieved, will cause the overwhelm and stress to end for you? Good news! Here’s how to feel the joy sooner rather than later.

What you'll find in this episode:

  1. Relief doesn’t come from the “thing,” it comes from the way that you think.
  2. If you’re telling yourself that there is relief out there “when,” then you’re setting up a tension between where you are today and where you think the relief exists. That just sets you up to be uncomfortable chronically.
  3. Of the five relationships you must develop as an entrepreneur, the relationship with your brain is the most powerful and least utilized performance tool.
  4. Your exercise is to answer the question – what are you telling yourself right now is your relief point?

Here are the basics you have to have in place in order to know when to fire someone and when NOT to fire someone.

What you'll find in this episode:

  1. #1 – Set clear expectations.
  2. #2 – Review their work.
  3. #3 – Give them feedback.
  4. The way you know it’s time to fire is you’ve set the expectations, you’ve reviewed their work and given them the feedback and they’re just not meeting the objectives of the role. 
  5. The way you know it’s not time to fire is when you’re bent out of shape and in total judgement.
