    Are You More Comfortable Doing The Implementation Work Versus Being The Ceo?

    When you think about delegating work, do you ever think, “But I like doing this!” It’s very common as you begin making the transition from implementer to CEO to feel uncomfortable. After all, you built your business by doing the work, but it’s not a long term solution.
    In this episode, I’m sharing the mindset shifts you need to make to move from implementer to CEO and how you can begin to think creatively about delegating client work instead of taking the work on yourself.
     
    What’s in this episode:
    Why it’s natural to feel a stretch when moving into the CEO role The mindset shifts you need to make as a CEO How doing the work yourself can actually be detrimental to your team The habits you need to change to be a CEO Why having a delegation strategy is important  The power of pausing before action

    A recap of part one of this series Why you should show up how you want your team to show up The importance of honoring your feelings in the workplace (and allowing others to too) Why you have to let your team lead in their own way The magic that can happen when you lean in How to create a safe space for feedback

Lexinic ,

Straightforward and super valuable advice for stepping into the role of CEO of your business

Through a serendepitious sequence of events, I got (re)connected to Nicole Jackson Miller, and I'm so glad I did - right as she launched her podcast. Scale Your Way is fantastic. Nicole is incredibly generous with the advice she gives, she's a great interviewer, and I especially appreciate the questions she asks that have helped me have some aha moments I wasn't expecting. Whether you have a successful agency, you are contemplating moving from being a solopreneur to leading an agency, or you run a coaching/consulting business with a growing team, you will love this podcast.
