E is for Expertise

"Surround yourself with the best people you can find, delegate authority, and don't interfere as long as the policy you've decided upon is being carried out." Ronald Reagan

The Wit & Wisdom of Ronald Reagan

As an entrepreneur, you have to get beyond your skills.  You limit your capacity if the business is limited to you and you alone.  That's suicide, not success.
Glengarry Glen Ross

Let me get both raw and real with the person who is a do-it-yourself go-getter full of get-up-and-go from here to eternity.  You'll "b" all that you can be: bummed out,burnt out and blown out.
Teach Your Team to Fish: Using Ancient Wisdom for Inspired Teamwork

You need to develop your team to act like a team. Then, once they are up and running, you can use some of those words that President Reagan threw out there in that quote: delegate, authority, policy and the best people.  You may need to first see the best in people if you are never bringing out their best. 

The Reagan Diaries
  • Collaborate with others... Get together and get it worked out together.  Make things happen.
  • Connect with others... Don't wait for them to approach you.  Get over yourself and make a connection.
  • Co-author with others... Create a "team" blog with another CEO or entrepreneur.  Write a book together.  Start with an op-ed article for the local press.  Conduct a joint training and show others you are working collectively with your resources.
  • Communicate with others... email, newsletter, press releases, etc.  Write up a blurb and blog about it.  Make it something special that people will be captivated by.  Get their attention and keep it.
