If a new hire is the wrong fit, you as a leader spend more time fixing things and solving problems than you do getting things done. You don’t have to spend time solving unnecessary problems.

For today’s Q&A we dive into this question:

“We’re hiring new full-time people, and the skill sets are equal for our applicants, so how they fit into our culture is becoming the tipping point. What should we be looking for in terms of the DISC profile and personality styles? What’s the priority: how they learn, how they communicate? What factors hold the most weight in the hiring process?” 

Here’s what you will discover in this episode:

  • The MOST important qualities to look for in a new hire
  • How to refine your hiring process
  • 6 Steps to ensuring your new hire is a perfect fit for your culture, team
  • How to effectively use Personality Profiles and Strengthsfinder in the hiring process

Encore Episode: What You Have In Common With Wine

October 18, 2016 | By | No Comments">No Comments

Today’s episode is part viticulture and part life lesson. I think you’re going to enjoy it…especially if you like wine!

Hi folks, this week we are bringing you an oldie but a goodie and revisiting one of our top rated podcasts of all time. (This is one of the most important things we talk about, and it’s so powerful…) So this is an encore presentation of us talking about what you have in common with wine!

In this podcast I’ll explain:

  • How wine grapes are grown and how this relates to you and your business
  • Your Root System
  • What makes a great farmer and how that farmer harvests a perfect grape
  • The process of destroying perfect grapes to make great wine
  • How farming and the process of wine making relates to you and your business

Every great business has seasons and there is a cycle or a process to growth. There are times to take advantage of the sun, the shade, creating boundaries and making sure things are set up correctly to grow. My own businesses have had moments of destruction to create something new, next thing you know, we grow. For me, I see that as God preparing us.

Just like the wine, there are seasons of aging in a barrel, mellowing out and giving us extra flavor. We can’t discount the destructive times. In those times, we’re becoming more intense. If we don’t look back with our teams and celebrate what we’ve come through or what we’ve done, we don’t understand that it’s a season we’ve grown out of.

Why Biblical Perspective Grows Your Business, And How to Get It

September 20, 2016 | By | No Comments">No Comments


iTunes Stitcher Radio SoundCloud

Subscribe in iTunes

You don’t need great experience to pull off that business venture or big transition.

The fear of failure, of not being capable, is overcome by understanding. Maybe you’re here: you don’t feel like you know everything about how to get started, what to do, or how to make it work. Here’s my suggestion, fill in the blanks! You must have great perspective to not have fear.

When it comes to fear, what most people are missing is quality perspective. I see this ALL the time. Here’s my rant…

God’s not going to call you to do something, then let you fail.

One of the biggest misconceptions that people have, unfortunately from decades and decades of bad Christian teaching, is the belief they are standing on a rug and God is holding onto the edge to just yank it out. That’s horrible teaching, it’s not true. God has a plan to prosper you.

We don’t believe God has our best interest at heart.

If God is telling you to do something, there is NO reason to not step out there. He’s not confused or changing his mind. Step out and pray for help with unbelief. That’s the faith side of it. The business side of it is a little different. 

Here’s what you’ll discover on the business side this episode:

  • What categories you need to gain perspective on for you business
  • How to define your platform
  • Forming a plan for reaching your audience
  • Differentiating yourself and your offering in the market
  • How to advertise to grow your brand and connect with your ideal customer
  • Determining the demographic that will be receptive to you
  • How to tailor your message to your audience
  • How to get your product or message in front of people

You can’t just sell a product. If you do, people will be bored with you. You must become relevant to your customer’s life. Speak to them in a way that makes them think, “Man, that [fill in your name], I want more from them.”

GAIN PERSPECTIVE.

When you gain this perspective, you actively remove obstacles from the table. What is left over becomes a clear picture of what you go after.

The Three Most Powerful Lessons a Leader Can Learn

August 31, 2016 | By | No Comments">No Comments


iTunes Stitcher Radio SoundCloud

Subscribe in iTunes

“Today we’re talking about transformation, and Joel and I have a HUGE announcement…”

We are launching the Elevate Your Leadership Online Event!! Guys we are so crazy excited about this. This event is centered around solving the very struggles and core issues that impact every single leader and entrepreneur. These are the most powerful lessons for entrepreneurs and leaders, lessons I have been helping people with for a long time.

It’s the content I’m always pushing our leaders and entrepreneurs in our Next-Level Mastermind and coaching program to solve…because these are the three biggest pieces holding you back right now as a leader.

We’re PUMPED. The easiest way to find out more info is to click the banner on our homepage!

In today’s podcast, Joel (our extremely handsome client head coach) and I dive into the DNA of businesses, including ours. Two of our phenomenal Next-Level Mastermind clients join us and we get to the core of solving problems in business, and what the transformation in a business looks like after implementing the three core lessons: Killing the Leadership Crazy Cycle, Tackling Tough Conversations, and Creating a Culture of Champions.

People come into our events thinking…

“I’m the only one going through this, every other leader has it put together…no one else is experiencing what I’m experiencing.”

THEN they step in to a event and realize everyone is struggling to grow and transform their businesses…dealing with the same. exact. things.

Let’s hear from two of our AMAZING clients. Magnus Simonarson and Quinn Denning are incredible leaders and the Presidents of their companies, busting it every day for their businesses and families. Magnus is the President of Consultwebs and a leader that came into his role, asking,

“What do I do? What do I focus on from 8- 5 as a leader?”

We see so many leader struggle because they don’t know what winning looks like in their role. NO, not everything falls to you as a leader in a business. It’s so much more than just deciding your day looks like…

Most leaders are overwhelmed, overloaded and stuck in the Leadership Crazy Cycle. They have endless tasks and problems to solve, they don’t know what’s the smartest thing to do, and they live stuck in this place. Almost EVERY leader in this situation passes everything on to their team leads and pushes the Leadership Crazy Cycle to their employees….are you in this crazy cycle?

If you’re relating to even one of these points, you’re in the Leadership Crazy Cycle:

  • You have so much to do and feel so overwhelmed, you don’t have time to even manage your time…
  • You don’t have time to delegate…
  • You don’t have time to hire anyone to delegate to…
  • You don’t have time to lead…
  • You don’t have time to teach…
  • You don’t have time for hardly anything other than your to-do list and putting out fires…

Here’s a taste of Magnus has to say on what held him back the most in his business, jump to 8:20. To hear more on the Leadership Crazy Cycle jump to 10:50 here on the player:

 

We dive into behind the scenes culture at  22:25, listen here:

Next, we jump into an interview with Quinn Denning, President of Rapidtek.
“If I would have implemented the lessons on Tackling Tough Conversations, I could have cut out this toxicity in my business 6 months earlier…”
This is so important. When you don’t have tough conversations and protect your culture:
  • Toxicity bleeds to the rest of the team and poisons them
  • Productivity tanks
  • Profits start to go down
  • The leader who doesn’t know how to handle this conversation and toxic situation is held back
  • Culture takes 10 steps backward

Killing the Leadership Crazy Cycle, Tackling Tough Conversations, and Creating a Culture of Champions are the lessons at the core of the transformation Magnus and Quinn scraped the surface of…

These three key lessons are pillars in your business and they impact EVERY…SINGLE…LEADER and entrepreneur. For well over a decade I have helped and coached thousands of leaders and entrepreneurs to grow their teams and businesses to success. These three core lessons are centered around solving the very struggles and issues that impact every single leader and entrepreneur. Learn more about these lessons here.

When we ask our clients how long they’ve been implementing something like Tackling Tough Conversations, or Creating a Culture of Champions, and they can’t remember. For some it’s only been a year since they implemented but it’s become second nature, DNA inside of their business.

It’s matter of getting the information, and start practicing and implementing.

Here’s what you need to know about learning these core lessons and improving the DNA of your business and attending Elevate Your Leadership Online Event:

  • These three core lessons are centered around solving the very struggles and issues that impact EVERY… SINGLE…LEADER and entrepreneur
  • If you take the information and run with it, you will transform your team and business
  • The Early bird special price is $297 for three transformative lessons for you, and everyone you can get around your computer
  • Early bird only lasts for a couple weeks
  • This content highlights and gets to the core of the three biggest pieces holding you back right now as a leader
  • Because of these lessons, Chris’ clients have transformed their businesses, become less stressed and more productive, while their TEAMS have become less stressed, more productive, and considerably more profitable
  • This is not a webinar, this is an online event. Chris will be teaching, speaking, and answering questions

“Doing your work as unto the Lord…” how to turn a church buzz word into a successful mindset.

TODAY our conversation is centered around the #1 thing I have done in my life as far as growing a business and work. Our first caller asks, 

“Professionally, how do I get a game plan to go to the next level and become a top performer in my field, and also be able to spot business opportunities.”

Here’s a taste of what we talk about:

  • Doing your work as unto the Lord: how to turn this from a church “buzz word” into a successful mindset
  • The one factor that overrides a growth mindset, financial planning, and diversification
  • The big “difference maker” between career fulfillment and failed events
  • Where society’s concept of “hustle” is greatly lacking

Then we dive into setting culture:

  • How to motivate team members to complete tasks
  • How to successfully bring on new hires (to get work done you need them to get)
  • You have to force the culture that you want, or other people will force it for you.

“You’re going to have to come up with their ideas.”

Ever felt like fixing bad culture in a business is an uphill, almost impossible, battle? It is when there are cynics and naysayers resisting change. I was talking with Jim Collins years ago, and his definition of a cynic is…

A hopeful person who’s tired of being let down.

On today’s podcast we talk about how to deal with cynicism in your culture and turn it around. Listen here:

Here’s what you’ll discover on today’s episode:

  • How to lead in a change-resistant culture
  • How to motivate employees when your supervisor has lost hope
  • The right questions to break your team’s negative mindset
  • How to implement change when the leadership team is stagnant
  • The questions you have to ask to fix a broken culture
  • The best approach to combatting cynicism in a leadership team
  • How to cut through bureaucracy to reach a solution
  • How to unite leadership teams and third parties, get them “on the same page”
  • The process of setting goals with multiple areas in your business

“If people don’t know where they’re going, they only give you half of their productivity. When they don’t know what the business is doing, they come in and do their “j-o-b” with no desire to grow or learn more.”

We have two incredible interviews on the show today!

These leaders have called in with questions every entrepreneur and leader should be asking…

“I think my meetings suck.” We tackle this statement and what to do about it….

Here’s a taste of what we talk about:

  • Where your time must be focused as an entrepreneur
  • How to increase your team’s productivity
  • The 5 steps to becoming a stronger leader
  • What your meetings should look like
  • How to re-energize your business
  • How to increase the loyalty of your team
  • Keeping momentum in your business

Our second guest asks,

“How do I re-invest myself after working for a leader who tarnished my reputation and then was eventually let go?”

We dive into:

  • The best mindset in business
  • What’s holding you back from being a stronger leader
  • Recovering from setting unreasonable goals for the team, micromanaging
  • How to turn a conflict situation into a growth experience
  • How to set expectations for your team

One of THE most important things you can do for your business is to serve the daylights out of your team, and set them up for success.

I want to hear from you on this! Comment below with your questions, challenges, solutions, or stories.

What is Really Holding You Back?

“All I got to do is work hard and then everything’s going to show up, right? Then it doesn’t.”

Be honest…how many “life hacks” are you trying implement this week? How many lists, habits and resources do you invest in monthly?

Timeout. 

There are plenty of tools out there to fix “the problem” or increase your productivity. But before you invest in a solution, ask yourself…

  • Do I really know what’s holding me back?
  • Do I have correct perspective, not just people’s advice and opinions?
  • Why am I responding the way I am?
  • Am I looking at my business and life the right way?
