Embrace Your Leadership Role with Shelli Warren

Female Founders Breaking Boundaries

May 5 2022 • 48 mins

When it comes to scaling a business, there are both mindset and procedural changes that need to be made to take entrepreneurs out of the day-to-day work and into the CEO role overlooking the business as a whole. This week’s episode 54 of Female Founders Breaking Boundaries is about embracing your leadership role!

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, my guest Shellii Warren is sharing the importance of having a solid, foundational strategic plan that outlines the trajectory of the business. Having this plan will allow entrepreneurs to hire proactively, not reactively, and leave the day-to-day operations to their team so that they can better step into their leadership position. Some of the things Shelli and I cover in this episode are:

  • Sherri’s journey retiring from Corporate America and moving into her encore career with BizChix.
  • The 2 types of people you need to hire when you’re ready to scale your business.
  • Practices to maintain a healthy and productive team.
  • Learning to have tough conversations and admit to your mistakes early on for the benefit of both you and your team.
  • The difference between coaching and criticizing.
  • Delegating the day-to-day operations of your business frees up time to focus on the big picture of your business while avoiding burnout.
  • Why we are dropping the terms “boss” and “employee” for words that bring more cohesion to the team environment.

Delegating to your team is a way to create opportunities for others to take ownership of tasks, leave their stamp on the business and spend every day playing to their strengths so that you can play to yours.

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 business woman and to hear even more about the points outlined above.
