To the accusation of premeditated resentments
how do you plea?
Guilty. But don’t feel too bad about it. Lots of other business owners are guilty of premeditated resentments, too. But you don’t have to be a repeat offender. RONDA, your trusty advocate and organized System Savant is here to help you reform.
See if any of these descriptions sound like you…and I hope they don’t:
- You put off hiring because you hate the headaches involved
- When you hire a new employee, you have them “shadow” you
- You don’t have any of your roles and responsibilities written down anywhere
- You don’t have regular review times set up
- There’s no system in place to help you automate and delegate
- Feedback is too often in the form of angry or emotional outbursts
Unfortunately, that’s just the tip of the iceberg of problems that come with unspoken expectations.
And that’s where premeditated resentments come from.
One of my clients told me how he played the “shadow” game with his new employees. And I listened to him explain how he was the only one qualified to show them how things worked. But then he also admitted how he felt like he wasted so much time explaining things to newbies that he couldn’t concentrate on building his business.
So, I told him, “Instead of paying an employee AND still doing that job, why not make short, instructional, training videos?”
“That’s brilliant!” he replied.
And I thought to myself, “Not brilliant. Just efficient.” But I said out loud, “Do it once. And let the system repeat it for you.”
It seems like it should be common sense that systems help business owners become highly organized and successful. But too many of them don’t use that common sense. They fight it. And ultimately their business becomes a mental battlefield. With casualties of hurt feelings, bruised egos, and so much lost time. And guess what?
That’s time you can never get back.
And lost time is potentially lost money. And I’m sure I don’t even have to mention what losing money does to your life. Right? But it’s all so avoidable. All you gotta do is what one of my happy clients said to do, “If you don’t already have a RONDA, get one.” Of course, I can’t personally be there for everyone. No one can. But I have the next best thing. My RondaReady business coach CRM system is there for you 24/7/365 (or 366 this year).
So, when you’re really, really ready to get ready, get RondaReady and…
