Entrepreneurs are usually full of hustle. They’re scrappy and all about winning. And that works for a while, but it often leads to burn out and overwhelm. Despite all the winning, they may find that they don’t even love what they do anymore. Truth-be-told, scrappy and hustle isn’t a long term business strategy. Today we’re talking about the importance of “the way” - not just “the win.” So what does the way look like for you?

What you'll learn from this episode:

  1. Entrepreneurs are often so focused on winning, winning, winning.
  2. What the scrappy, hustle mentality looks like.
  3. How many entrepreneurs lose the love for what they do.
  4. What winning looks like for Kris and her team.
  5. Determine what it is that you just “have to do” in your business – then find another way. Be a maverick!

If you’re having a hard time finding good talent, and nobody's coming to the interviews, or those who do come aren't the people you'd hire – listen in folks. Don’t come at this from a place of scarcity. Regroup and rethink the way you hire. This is about making your work environment the one that everybody wants to work for, and I can help you do that.

What you'll learn from this episode:

  1. Vital lesson - you can do anything.
  2. 2020 was the “what if” year.
  3. There are really talented, ethical, honest, good people who want to work. You just have to attract them.
  4. How you hired people 16 months ago probably needs to change.
  5. Do you have an appealing, exciting, interesting, worth it place to work for the people you want to hire?
  6. Be careful about slipping into certain belief systems; then you don't invest in opportunity.
  7. How to be more competitive as an employer? Employee niche, vision and values, job description, compensation - this is all work I do in How to CEO with my clients.

So, you’re thinking about promoting someone in your business. How do you know if it’s really time – if they’re really ready? CEOs need some kind of litmus test to use when they're considering promoting someone. Here’s the test!

What you'll learn from this episode:

  1. You should have a clear job description for this person’s current role - clear goals, and some sort of measurement process that you're following to tell you if this person is performing well in their current job.
  2. Define the new role – a clear job description, the key objectives, and day-to-day responsibilities.
  3. Interview that person against the new job description.
  4. Have them do a project as a test.
  5. The final hurdle - they must have a track record of consistent success.
  6. Pay them based on the role they're going into, not based on what they're making now.
  7. Who you promote speaks volumes about who you are and what you value.
