“You don’t have meetings to just have meetings.”
“You have to truly care about them, about your people.”
“It’s incredible to see how the Lord has worked through our leaders and through the employees, and how we’ve been able to step in and help them and say, ‘Hey, we care about you.'”
“I’m okay with them taking time off almost anytime they need to or want to, as long as they’re overachieving along these they’re achieving their goals.”
“I encourage you to encourage them to take time off, right with their spouse, with their children. It’s only going to come back to you many times over by caring about them in that way.”
“If you want to scale if you want to grow, you have to delegate, and you have to empower your people to do things, and trust them.”
“What I want is for them to come up with a decision. And they may have a different decision than you and at that point, you can discuss it.”
“And so hopefully, you’re asking questions, and they’re teaching you things that you didn’t know.”
“I started this voluntary journal meeting. So it’s not anything complicated, but it’s more so who’s motivated, who wants to be held somewhat accountable, right for this thing.”
“And I know that if I don’t harness some of that motivation, and empower them, they’re gonna go do it for somebody else.”
“Remember, they are your most important asset. And, you know, as you grow, they’re your biggest asset.”
