Number 1 Rule, Free to Owner

October 31, 2017 // R. Shawn McBride // No Comments »

R. Shawn McBride recently spoke about the principle of freeing up the business owner.

Hi everybody, Shawn here with you again talking more about another principle to embrace in our business, and, it’s freeing up the owner. I recently was at a Strategic Coach Workshop – and for those of you that aren’t familiar with Strategic Coach, I’ve been a client, they help business owners accelerate to the next level. It’s one of the many tools I use. I recommend it. If you’re interested in it, reach out to me I can get you some more information and get you passed over to the right people. It’s a quarterly workshop. You work on your business, not in your business. And it’s great. Dan Sullivan, who is the head of Strategic Coach now has 120 employees and it is a very successful organization. And his number one rule, which is free up Dan Sullivan. Allow Dan Sullivan to be himself. And we all need to think about this as business owners. It’s a wonderful tool for all of us to try to implement.

How do you free yourself up? How do you get your employees to take the things away that aren’t authentically you, that aren’t adding tons of value, and free you up so that you can be creative so that you can find new ways to address the marketplace. So that you can do the things that you’re truly great at. This is a wonderful lesson for all of us.

How do we free ourselves up? And it’s an underlying principle we should have in our business. Not, how do I get more done? How do I free myself up to do the things I’m great at? How does the organization get more done by using people in their correct seats doing their correct things? But how do you get more done by freeing yourself up? Think about it. Embrace it. It will make a huge difference.
