Are You Ready to Hire Your Right Hand?
This blog post is going to be a little bit of a heart to heart. When I say your right hand it screams Game of Thrones, hand of the king! IYKYKI get on a lot of calls with people who say they are ready to hand over some of the main responsibilities within their business. A lot of times business owners/CEOs say that because they are overwhelmed and know they need to hire somebody to help them grow the business. But when I hear that during a discovery call, it prompts me to go a little deeper with them. I ask you now if you are considering bringing on a DOO, are you sure you’re ready to relinquish some of the major/main responsibilities of your company??? Because in order to do that you must be willing to trust in the person that you will be investing in.
Trusting with your business systems
And lastly, you need to know if you are a micromanager or not. Many individuals in the DOO roll are the type of people who know how to take the ball and run with it. They are natural born leaders. They don’t require a lot of day-to-day touching base. Rather, weekly meetings are a great way to stay in touch with the team and delegate new tasks. Who better to facilitate those meetings than your DOO. You need to trust that those objectives are going to be met in a timely manner.
So, my friend, please do a sole check before you consider hiring somebody for a top level position in your company. You will be doing yourself and your new hire a disservice. The old saying is you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make them drink is so true in the situation.
