Podcast highlights:

Be a “Virtuoso Leader”…

  • Leaders often have to be able and ready to play many different roles in their business.
  • A “Virtuoso Leader” has the ability and knowledge to realize what situations call for which roles and to adapt to new situations quickly.
  • Use emotional intelligence: employees need an outlet to express their emotions. Check in with them and allow them to express issues so you can help process them.

Motivate your staff…

  • Be relentless: a leader must project energy to their team and talk to them often in order to keep them focused and on the same page.
  • You’ll have to repeat yourself multiple times – this is a good thing. Employees like consistent messaging; it gives them a sense of purpose and mission.

Create a Company “Time Management Calendar”…

  • By creating a specific weekly schedule, you can keep your team on track.
  • Consider eliminating Monday meetings – use the day instead to “absorb and process.”
  • Then give each other day of the week a theme:  Use Tuesdays to “download and discuss,” Wednesdays to “adapt and decide,” Thursdays to “keep, start, or stop doing,” and Fridays to “prepare and reflect” (and maybe leave early!)

    The best day of the week tip that I received that was helpful was “avoid planning meetings out of town that start at 8 a.m. Monday morning because it requires you to travel Sunday night, taking time away from your family and preventing any rest on Sunday.”
