Monday, I spent the day with a select group of top-notch entrepreneurs in Toronto Canada sharpening the saw, refining our purpose and improving our businesses. One of the key concepts we continued to focus on was “Who, not How!”.
When most entrepreneurs (including me) face a challenge, our first reaction is to ask: “How do I solve this problem.”
Start to Ask WHO, not HOW…
The idea that as soon as I come up with an idea, my sole responsibility is to ask, “Who am I going to tag in to implement this project?” It has been an absolute game-changer.
If you want to create massive impact, you need to overcome old habits and begin to view human capital as an abundant resource. From there, curate a strong and passionate team to support you and act as your WHOs.
By delegating the HOW to my WHOs, my productivity and my overall passion go through the roof, because I can remove myself from the mental weight and obligation of unfinished projects, allowing me to focus on what I truly love to do.
No matter how well a performer or athlete prepares or how talented he or she may become, they cannot perform to their highest ability or put on the best show possible without a team to back them up. They have surrounded themselves with the right WHOs.
We would like to introduce you to some of the new members of the team and reintroduce you to some members who have been servicing you for some time.
