“We are not a team because we work together. We are a team because we respect, trust, and care for each other.” ~Vala Afshar, Salesforce
Life – and business – are a lot easier if you don’t travel through them alone. Yet so many business owners try to do just that.
We get it. It is really difficult to delegate – especially those tasks that require an in-depth understanding of how you think and your short and long term goals. Are you guilty of this? Stop! It’s not only counter-productive, it’s an almost sure way to fail in business. Why?
You should be focused on growing your business. The only way to accomplish this is to develop long-term and essential relationships – with your in-house team and those you hire to support and promote your business.
How can you learn to delegate better so you can focus on growth? With carefully cultivated relationships. Here are a few examples, along with guidelines to help you nurture those relationships which best work for you and your business.
