    How to Improve Your Business – Fast! – in Just 7 Minutes with David Deane-spread

    How to Improve Your Business – Fast! – in Just 7 Minutes with David Deane-spread

    What You’ll Learn From This Episode:* 'Deadly Quad' - biggest risk in the business* Applying the 5Cs* Effects of high level of stress in the businessRelated Links and Resources:David is giving a free diagnostic so that you will get that clarity around your business. Go to https://metattude.com/deadly-quad-diagnosticSummary:David Deane-Spread is a 25-year veteran CEO coach and founder of Metattude.  His clients range across federal and state government, public and private companies to small & medium businesses – his favorites, because they have the most skin in the game!David honed his skills in the military, law enforcement and another discreet agency where he specialized in developing and leading covert operators. He later adapted those skills to serve as a CEO and managing director of both private and public companies in Australia and Europe, before realizing his true calling was developing leaders, because they have the biggest impact on the workplace.Here are the highlights of this episode:David informed us that his ideal client would be a business owner who has about 200 staff and want to improve their business.He says that the 'deadly quad' is the biggest risks to the business. First would be the difficult behaviors that block progress, suck energy and cause mistrust. Secondly would be the misalignment and that's wasting time, resources, and causing confusion. Then you've got poor delegation which really impacts performance and productivity. And finally, those badly run meetings that everyone complains. Which actually causes a total waste of time at disengagement.There is a high level of stress when things are not working, and people start to feel frustration and disappointment because of slow or no progress in strategy execution. Then there would be unnecessary conflict. So, the customer satisfaction turns out to be at a lower level because the people aren't behaving the way the boss would really like them to behave.They tolerate unacceptable behavior because they can't afford to lose them. So, they hang in there and deal with all the problems around them. Then they will start to micromanage because of the situation. And once they micromanaged, then they're going to really annoy people. Threats and micromanagement don't work. David’s Valuable Free Action (VFA):Business owners should get absolute clarity about the actual state of their business regarding to that deadly quad, because too many business leaders make assumptions about those areas. Where are the bad behaviors? What's it doing to us? To what extent are we aligned or misaligned? Is our delegation process working and are our meetings effective? And if they don't have clarity around that, then they're going to be bumbling around in the dark.

    How to Create Time, Reduce Errors And Scale Your Profits With Proven Business Systems – in Just 7 Minutes with David Jenyns

    How to Create Time, Reduce Errors And Scale Your Profits With Proven Business Systems – in Just 7 Minutes with David Jenyns

    What You’ll Learn From This Episode:



    * Removing 'key person' dependency

    * Applying 'critical client' flow

    * Systemizing business if you don't like systems







    Related Links and Resources:

    If you go to www.systemology.com/resources, they'll find there a bunch of resources and one of them is the 'client flow template'. It's a PDF with the empty spaces for you to fill in.

    Summary:

    In 2016, David Jenyns successfully systemised himself out of his business, one of Australia’s most trusted digital agencies, Melbourne SEO. Through this process he became a systems devotee – founding systemHUB & SYSTEMology. Today, his mission is to free all business owners worldwide from the daily operations of running their business.

    Here are the highlights of this episode:

    During the interview, David told us that his ideal client would be a business owner who finds themself as the bottleneck in their business. They're starting to scale or wanting to scale, but they're really finding that everything needs to come through them. And that really seems to be the biggest linchpin or the thing that's holding them back from growth.

    The problem that they really help solve centers around the same thing, is helping businesses become more repeatable. He said that businesses and business owners must remove key person dependency, whether it's themselves or any other team member in order to make business a lot stronger and a lot more scalable.

    Oftentimes if the business owner feels like they're running an adult daycare center; constantly having to tend to different team members and clients when they come in. Maybe they've tried to systemize their business and they haven't failed. Business owner just loves to do everything and they think they're the best at everything. Therefore, they need to create the systems, but oftentimes they're not a system person. A lot of business owners tend to overcomplicate things.

    It's quite natural for the business owner to not like documenting systems, but that doesn't mean you can’t run a systems driven business. Every business should be working towards building systems, reducing that key person dependency and making sure that the business can grow without them because that's the real key.

    David's Valuable Free Action (VFA):

    David has an exercise called 'critical client' flow. On a paper,  you map the linear journey of your dream client and selling your primary product or service to that dream client. From start to finish, think about "How do you grab their attention? How do you handle the inquiry when it comes into you? What's your sales process? How do you invoice them or take money? How do you onboard them? How do you deliver your core products or service? And then how do you get them to come back?"

    Literally map that out on a four bit of paper. You don't use more than about two or three words to explain each of the different steps. Exercise alone can be really eye opening for determining where should you start or what systems should you put in place. Just focus on the critical client flow and you'll get a tremendous result.

    Jumpstart Your ‘Someday When’ Project – in Just 7 Minutes with Kristin Swanson

    Jumpstart Your ‘Someday When’ Project – in Just 7 Minutes with Kristin Swanson

    What You’ll Learn From This Episode:



    * Learning to take consistent action

    * Handling productivity shame

    * Taking that messy, small, action!







    Related Links and Resources:

    If you go to www.kristinswansonconsulting.com you can download the free "Make it Happen Planner." Make a plan to start taking action, breaking it down into your quarters and months and make this happen.

    Summary:

    Kristin Swanson helps people execute their “someday when” procrastinated projects with ease.  As a completion expert, coach & cancer survivor, Kristin has learned the importance of getting out of one’s own way and stop waiting until “someday” to make a unique impact. Realizing deeply that “you only live once,” she has gained perspective, tools and strategies to overcome the illusions fear instills in us.

    Here are the highlights of this episode:

    When we asked Kristin who she catered to, she told us that her ideal clients would be entrepreneurs and solopreneurs who have the urgency to turn their 'someday wind projects' into reality. She said it's important to take consistent action. Most of these clients she encountered had this feeling of "productivity shame". A feeling at the end of the day, like you didn't get to the things that you really wanted to get done. There would be feelings of regret and they tell themselves "I'm not spending my time where I really truly want to be spending my time."

    The problem is, they start taking all the courses, reading all the books and not implementing on a day-to-day basis. Not integrating it to your day-to-day life and just the waiting. Waiting until I feel ready, seems to be the biggest mistake. You should take action every day if you can.

    If there is something in the back of your mind that is whispering at you. I believe these are "soul led goals" that comes with no regrets and they're big projects that are not going to happen overnight anyway. Start small and start now. Once you get started, you'll be astounded with the compound effect and really the synchronicities that start to happen when you do that.

    Kristin’s Valuable Free Action (VFA): The action that I would say is to get quiet and visualize your future self in having done the thing. And then asking that future self "What are some possible action steps I could have taken to get to where you are?" and just start taking action every day. Messy, small, action!
