How to Manage a Team Without it Monopolizing Your Time

The Growing your Team Podcast: Episode 31


One of the top reasons small businesses hire new team members is because there is a lack of time. More hands are needed in the business because you and the team you might have can no longer do it all.

However, many small business owners don’t gain time when they hire. Why? Because they replace the time they were once taking doing tasks with overseeing their new team member(s).

The question many small business owners are left asking is, “How can I manage a team without it taking up all my time?”

The good news is, it’s possible. In this episode of the Growing Your Team podcast, you’ll hear three steps you can take to make sure you save time with each new team member and don’t feel like you spend all your time managing.
