Perhaps you’ve done your quarterly planning, your staff understands their accountability, they understand the functions of their role, they have ownership over their responsibilities and yet your inbox is still overflowing with messages and questions from your team. So what gives? Today we’re going to dig into why this might be happening even if you feel like you’re doing everything to empower people to operate and function autonomously in their roles. This week’s episode 97 of Female Founders Breaking Boundaries is about how to keep your staff out of your inbox!

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 holding regular team meetings as well as one on one meetings so that everyone feels supported and a blueprint of what these meetings should look like. Some of the things I cover in this episode are:

  • Celebrating Sarah Evans, founder and CEO of Well Beyond and Well Aware, for being a changemaker in the way water projects are executed and paving the way by implementing sustainable and clean water solutions for impoverished communities around the world. 
  • Why I will always be in favor of and recommend holding regular team meetings. 
  • What your one on ones with team members should look like to ensure they feel supported towards the business goals. 
  • What’s on my mind outside of business: Supporting and highlighting an old classmate of mine who started a movement to raise money for veterans in crisis. 

I'm curious. Are you already holding one on one meetings with your staff and if not- do you think this is something that you are going to be implementing?

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