Creating a Profitable Team with Ashley Cox

Female Founders Breaking Boundaries

Jun 9 2022 • 55 mins

Onboarding is an overlooked yet vital part of the hiring process and if done wrong, can actually stand in your way from growing your business. This week’s episode 59 of Female Founders Breaking Boundaries is about creating a profitable team!

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 Ashley Cox is sharing the importance of setting your new hire up for success from the very beginning and actionable steps you can take right now to nail down your onboarding process to save time and valuable resources in the long term. Some of the things Ashley Cox and I cover in this episode are:

  • What to consider when bringing in a new team member and the implications of poor onboarding.
  • 4 common mistakes business owners make when it comes to onboarding and how you can avoid them.
  • The number 1 question to ask yourself when working with a new hire.
  • Tips to successfully onboard your new hire
  • How your role and actions as a leader have a direct impact on your team.

Hiring and onboarding is an expensive and time-consuming process so it is important you do the work to get it right.
