If you’re the visionary leader of your business but have found yourself bogged down with operational tasks for too long, you might find yourself neglecting your role or even forgetting what your role entails. Reclaiming your focus and transitioning back into being the visionary can feel challenging but is essential for the long-term success of your business. This week’s episode 105 of Female Founders Breaking Boundaries is about essential activities for high-impact visionaries!

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 your job description as the visionary in your business and the tasks you should be doing to drive your business with purpose and direction. Some of the things I cover in this episode are:

  • Celebrating Jennifer Ryan, serial entrepreneur and Co-founder of the app, Croux for creating a tool that works to solve the staffing challenges in the hospitality industry by changing the way people work in shifts. 
  • Visionary leaders are responsible for overseeing the vision, collaborations & partnerships, big-picture problems, and culture of the business. 
  • Daily activities for visionaries should be centered around strategic direction, talent building, and navigating industry change. 
  • Skills and traits that are important for a visionary leader to be successful in their role. 
  • What’s on my mind: I don’t think I am the only one to suffer from productivity guilt and the constant pull to be doing something.
