Three Things We Learned From This Episode
- Hire for attitude, train for skill
Sometimes the best real estate talent comes from outside our industry. We need to pay attention to people in our sphere who are already good at what they do. They could possibly be good matches for real estate.
- How to avoid overworking yourself
As team leaders, we often have guilt when we spend any time our way from our business, but we can’t have a great family life if we’re answering every question. Our clients will be happy getting help and questions answered by other agents on the team.
- If you want to leverage people you have to trust them
Don’t micromanage people, empower them. Give them the room to learn and to fail in their role.
We won’t allow them to grow, and we’ll never be able to find out their superpower. Trust is important in being able to gain more freedom.
No amount of success at work can make up for failure at home. When we don’t work to have work-life balance, our families and our own health suffer. Leverage is one way we can start getting back our freedom. The benefits of getting a team aren’t just for the team leader, they are for everyone on the team because it means no one will be spread too thin. The more deliberate and structured we are in what we’re doing, the more success you’ll have.
