Show Notes

We have a retention issue. Our good, hardworking people are leaving. The first thought tends to be that we must have a company culture issue, but it actually goes well beyond that. We spend time trying to add things to improve company culture, but it doesn’t create an environment that makes our employees feel appreciated. The truth is this–if you want to keep people, you must stop exhausting them. This week’s episode 95 of Female Founders Breaking Boundaries is about how to boost employee retention and productivity!

Have you ever felt like you were WAY too busy, stressed out, burnt out, and overwhelmed, so you were advised to delegate some tasks to take things off your plate and free up some time? Except, maybe it didn't work. If getting out of the day-to-day in your business was as simple as hiring more people, then why are you still feeling overwhelmed and burned out? You are not alone! Sometimes, simply delegating tasks doesn’t work and instead shifts your workload from “doing” to “managing.”

I invite you to use the exercise that our own C-Suite clients use to take the first step in turning your team into a well-oiled, self-managed machine- and get you out of the delegation catch-22. Download the exercise here to get started!

In this episode of Female Founders Breaking Boundaries, I’m sharing the importance of addressing the real issues behind employee productivity and efficiency struggles. I also share some actionable steps you can take to support your team to be more efficient and productive. 

I’m covering: 

  • Examples of real-time struggles for small businesses.
  • The impact burnout has on our teams and businesses.
  • Understanding the difference between the team’s busy work and intentional work.
  • How to prioritize intentional work.
  • Measuring the capacity of your team to help facilitate all of this.

Thanks for listening! Be sure to tune in to all the episodes to receive tons of tools, advice, resources, support, and encouragement that resonates with the modern businesswoman and to hear even more about the points outlined above.
