When it comes to employee management, this isn't always something that comes natural to newer business owners.  Particular areas of concern is for business is with hiring talent and delegating responsibilities.

With regards to hiring, the main tip that I can give here it to know what you want and what you value.   Business owners that are clear on what they want can better find and assess candidates.

If you know your values, then you can ask questions that will provide some insight on whether or not the candidate you are looking at shares the same values as your company.

With delegation, it comes down to protecting your Soul Purpose and ensuring that you are working in the areas that create the most value for your business.  When you manage people, it's easy to lose sight of that fact.

As soon as someone makes a mistake or things aren't done the way you like them done, you say things like; “I just need to do it myself.” or “I can't count on anyone.”

One of the best things that you can do to help delegation is to connect with your team on as deep of a level as possible.

What are their goals?

What do they think they are great at?

What's the next step for their career?

Why do they work for you?

When you know the answers to these questions, you can feel better about the person you are delegating to.  You can also use this information to connect the best people with specific objectives that need to be accomplished in your business.

Now you have the best people engaged in the most important work.

Listen below for a call that I recently did for a company, Freedom FastTrack, that I do a lot of work for where I can about hiring and delegation tips.
