Their team members have very clear roles and very clear pathways of their career. So they feel comfortable with being there long term. This is key to retention. One exercise I went through a couple of years ago is actually with a coach.
She had me literally write down 100 things I had to get off my plate in a twelve month period. Called it the 100 things to delegate exercise. And this was one of the most impactful things to do. And some things I thought only I can do that.
And literally, once I delegated them, we found that there were smarter people much more capable of doing the task at hand with higher quality. So elevate and delegate is a key to success. So that your time is really spent as a business owner on high level activities that can’t be replicated, like maintaining key relationships rainmaking on top of the firm rainmaking.
