As a leader, you’ve got to make your team successful. That’s your job, that’s your role, period.

You have to look at every team member and employee as a responsibility to you, and a responsibility you have to God. You have a responsibility to train them, treat them well, and lead them well.

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

“I am a full time band teacher, and have a part time job with 6 staff who don’t get paid enough, how do I not feel guilty about delegating to these people who are almost volunteers when you look at their paychecks? I don’t want them to burn out and leave.”

For those of you listening, this is just as vitally important to those who have well paid staff. 

Here’s what you’ll discover in this episode:

  • How to motivate your team
  • How to properly delegate
  • How to successfully reward employees
  • The process of teaching and training your team members to be leaders

The questions today dealing with listening to God and how to actually take time off from your job.

Taking time to listen to God is tough in our busy world but it’s vital. You have to make time for that. It’s truly the most important part of your day. I answer a great question from Jason about being more open to God and even listening to people, too.

And Barry had an interesting question about taking time off during the week to “relax” or rest from work. Is it possible when you genuinely love your job?
I feel ya Barry!

Here are some of the highlights from this podcast:

  • How to listen to God
  • Being sensitive to God’s voice
  • Why you need to practice listening
  • Building the listening muscles
  • Being fully engaged in conversation
  • Emotional attachment in your work
  • Why the Sabbath is important?

Ask Chris: KRA Questions and Breaking Into Public Speaking

KRA Questions and Public Speaking

Subscribe to the podcast: iTunes Stitcher Radio SoundCloud

Chris is answering your questions today! In this episode, Chris covers personal finance, KRA’s and how to become a public speaker.

The Key Results Area sample pack is one of the most popular downloads on the site. If you haven’t checked it out, it’s a great free resource to help you get started with your KRA. Do you feel like you’re winning in your role? Does leadership think you’re winning in your role?

When it comes to your KRA, here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Your KRA should outline the key areas that will make us, the company, win
  • The details aren’t the key result area and when you’re task saturated, you’re not winning
  • The more you add to your KRA, the less you can win

Chris also covers how to build a platform that enables you to share information and create a demand for public speaking. Bottom line, public speaking and sharing a message can’t be about you. It’s about what you can do or share to help other people.

For more information on public speaking, check out 5 Tips on Speaking Without Fear and his Public Speaking Tips Q&A video:

A KRA is a job descriptions on steroids. They’re created to show the person performing the job what winning looks like. The KRA should outline three to six major areas, with four to five bullets under each area drilling down on specific tasks. To review sample KRA’s, check out this post: How to Create a Key Results Area In this episode I’ll be answering your key results area specific questions, like:

  • How to incorporate company vales into KRAs
  • How to use a KRA during a performance review
  • How to adapt a KRA for coaches and athletes

The major goal of a key results area is to improve communication. When a new hire is made and the job description is under communicated, both the leader and the employee are frustrated. Neither party understand what the other is supposed to be doing. Neither party understand what winning looks like. If you don’t have KRA’s in your business, start today! KRA, Key Results Area, Sample KRA, I’ll also answer your questions on tithing, where to find new hires, and how to find a balance between patience and career growth in the podcast.

How to Create a KRA (Key Results Area)

Key Results Areas are all about increasing productivity on your team because everyone knows what winning looks like in their role.

The major goal of a key results area is to improve communication…

If you’re not using KRAs, you and your team members are flying blind and being reactive instead of proactive.

What’s a Key Results Area:

A KRA is a list of the most important tasks you do every day to win. It’s a job description on steroids.

A good KRA includes the ongoing responsibilities of the position, and the purpose and benefits of performing those responsibilities.

Tasks and activities that focus on one or more specific areas are grouped together.

Whatever is expected must be in writing, reviewed, agreed upon, and signed by both the employee and the leader so there’s no confusion when something isn’t getting done.

Here are several Sample KRAs to help you get started.

How To Develop a KRA:

The KRA should outline three to six major areas, with four to five bullets under each area drilling down on specific tasks.

  • Set aside an hour to the evaluate how you are currently spending your time and write down a list of things you do (or should be doing).
  • Ask yourself, “What makes my position essential to the success of the company?” What are you working on everyday to reach your mission and goals?
  • Make sure each key results area is specific, measurable, actionable, and essential. If you don’t do it, no one else will. If you do it, you’ll win and the company will succeed.
  • Ask yourself, “Are there tasks or areas that can be delegated?” Delegation increases your productivity.
  • Review your key result areas frequently, and make sure your goals align with your daily tasks.
  • If you need help creating your KRAs, inquire about our 1 hour KRA training. We can quickly help you develop KRAs for your entire team.
