In my early years as a leader, I was a horrible manager. I look back and cringe at how I pleaded with or threatened people to get their job done. It seemed to be never-ending conversations of me reminding them or continually chasing after them to get the results I wanted.
It was while reading Stephen Covey’s book “7 Habits of Highly Effective People” that I began to understand clearly how the problem was me. As I read his book, and then several others on the topic of leadership and management, I realized I was looking at getting results with my team from the completely wrong perspective.
As I began implementing changes in how I lead, I began sharing with my contracting clients what I was learning. The positive change in the results they produced was and continues to be, dramatic. And the other benefit? They work fewer hours and love what they do again!
In today’s video, you will learn how to stop having to chase after results with your team. This video is an interview I did with Spencer Powell, host of the Builder Funnel Radio podcast.
