What You'll Discover In This Episode:
In Jim Collin’s well-known book Good to Great, he says, “Leaders of companies that go from good to great start not with ‘where’ but with ‘who.’ They start by getting the right people on the bus, the wrong people off the bus, and the right people in the right seats.”
It’s a great analogy for building your dream team: hiring the right people, letting go of the people who aren’t working out, and delegating tasks according to strengths, skillsets, and experience. When you do the hard work in the beginning of getting the right people on your bus in the right seats, your bus can go far.
I want to take that analogy one step further and suggest that once you have the right people in the right seats on your bus, you must take action to make them want to stay on your bus for the journey to your destination. You want to build a powerful team who wants to run alongside you toward your goals long-term.
To do that, you must share your vision, delegate empowering work that encourages innovation, create a healthy work-life balance, and build a company culture that people want to be a part of. In other words, make your bus the transportation vehicle of choice for the talented people capable of staying along for the ride and taking your vision from A to Z.In this episode of Productivity Straight Talk, I sit down with the founder and CEO of Healthpreneur®, Yuri Elkaim, to dive into how he built a high-performing team of stars and seeds who support his vision and goals, how he maintains a culture they love to work in, and how you can do the same.
