One of the biggest reasons small business owners remain a prisoner of their own making is the lack of leadership skill.
If you are convinced that no one is as capable as you, or you’re convinced you can’t find “good” people, I know how you feel. I’ve endured just about every employee nightmare you can imagine. I’ve had employees steal money from me, take my clients and fail to show up for work leaving me to do the work all alone. And I know what it’s like to feel like you can’t find good people…
One sunny afternoon some years ago, my staff and I noticed a low-rider, gangster type of vehicle sitting in our parking lot for quite a while. The two front doors were swung open and pot smoke billowed out of the car. There were two men in the car, and about the time I was going to call the police, one of them got out of the car and began to make his way to our front door.
I was standing next to the phone in case I needed to call 911. Was he going to rob us? What could he possibly want from us? He was wearing flip-flops, cut-off blue jeans, a yellow tank-top, and had a big tattoo on his arm. He didn’t bother to take his sunglasses off as he stepped inside.
“Ya’ll hirin’?” he said.
“You’re KIDDING!” I’ thought to myself.
I replied with something that is not exactly legal but seemed appropriate at the time…
“We do require a drug test, is that going to be a problem?”
“Dat gon’ be today?” he replied. In other words, if you give me 24 hours, maybe I can get clean!
So, I know it can be tough out there. But I learned how to attract the best people, how to lead them and most importantly have created a phenomenal leadership system that helps me attract, acquire and train the very best people. And you can too…
You don’t have to be held hostage by under performing employees…
If you want to lead your employees more effectively, you’ve got to develop your leadership skill. The good news is that anyone can become an effective leader. It’s a skill. And the better news, I mean phenomenal news is that you can develop a phenomenal leadership system. Your employees can be your greatest asset or your biggest nightmare. And that depends completely and solely on your leadership skill.
John Maxwell, the world’s #1 leadership expert says “everything rises and falls on leadership”
Everything? Can that be true?
He goes on to say that “leadership is influence”. Nothing more, nothing less. He also says the toughest person to lead is yourself.
When you begin to understand your strengths and weaknesses, and you begin to understand how to lead others, you can build a phenomenal team. This means that you don’t have to do everything yourself.
It means you can now find those people that can do the things you don’t like to do (and probably aren’t very good at). I have a staff of 40 people that run my companies for me. I can tell you without hesitation, that one of my greatest joys in life is watching my team grow. To watch my managers grow as leaders is thrilling.
No team. No dream. If you don’t build the right team, you won’t reach your dream. It starts with developing yourself as a leader first. One of the value systems I live by is to get around people who are already doing what I want to do.
So, I decided to bring together some of the world’s top leadership experts…
The Ultimate Leadership Mastermind is an up-close, personal, exclusive group of less than 60 people who will be learning from Michael Gerber (who Inc. Magazine called “the world’s #1 small business guru”), John Maxwell (widely held as the world’s #1 leadership expert), and Joseph Michelli, who has been granted unprecedented access behind the scenes of some of the world’s most “experiential” companies such as Starbucks and The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company.
