    The Retention Roadmap: Empower

    The Retention Roadmap: Empower

    How would it feel to never have to make another travel itinerary? Or, to never have to send another invoice? 
    Leaders like you can experience this kind of freedom when you empower your Executive Assistant to own outcomes such as travel management, invoicing and calendar management.
    An empowered EA takes the lead to work on your behalf, so you can spend time doing the work of a visionary. 
    In today’s episode, I want to discuss: 
    - Why you need to outsource outcomes, rather than tasks, for your EA to feel empowered
    - How to detach from the work you delegate to experience real freedom
    - Why you must fight the urge to take back work you already delegated
    - The importance of not confusing empowerment with perfectionism. Mistakes will be made — I’ll teach you how to not freak out!

    Are Annual Reviews Still Relevant?

    Are Annual Reviews Still Relevant?

    Are annual performance evaluations worth your time as a Leader? Do they really inspire better performance with your team? 
    This topic is divisive. Many Leaders are split on the annual review’s effectiveness. I still use them, but not as a standalone system for feedback. Your team deserves more than that. 
    They need empowerment, encouragement and engagement to thrive. They also need to feel safe to tell you how YOU can improve, too.
    In today’s episode you’ll hear:
    How to make the annual review a mutually beneficial meeting  Why you might want to consider adopting quarterly reviews  Why real time feedback is MORE important than annual benchmarks And finally, I’m going to share questions to ask during your meeting to improve your team’s morale and empowerment Subscribe and Review
