Episode 14 – Doug Bacon
In this episode we discuss how to tap into your mid-lower strengths, the scalability of your business when it solely depends on your time, leveraging your strengths with the strengths of your colleagues plus how important it is to hire people with complementary strengths and talents.
In order to tap into those mid-lower talents, Doug developed a system that firstly satisfied his top talents so he could create some space for the lower talents to come forward.
How Doug figured out a way to scale his business so that it didn’t max out at him.
Why it’s not so much about hiring someone to help you do the work you love, but hiring someone who takes away the work you don’t want to spend time doing.
How to hire from a different perspective – look at what traits are needed for that role, and then collect data on candidates as to how aligned they are to these traits needed. Two major traits groups include how we are wired for achievement and how we are wired for relationships.
