Are you the Captain of your ship?

I don’t know what possesses people to sail round the world solo like Dame Ellen MacArthur, but I really admire them.

I saw her on a hot, crowded London commuter train once – probably one of the few times that I began to see the appeal of being alone in the middle of an ocean!

As a business owner you’ve bravely struck out in your boat leaving the relative safety of the shore, perhaps the security of a 9 to 5 job.

You’ve recognised that manning the boat on your own is not feasible as your business grows.

You know that you need crew, but you’re reluctant to take them on…the boat is precious to you, and besides, dealing with a crew will be nothing but hassle. ‘By the time I’ve trained them I could have done it myself!’ Sound familiar?

Employing people doesn’t have to be a hassle though – far from it – it can be one of the most rewarding aspects of business….. if you get it right.

Perhaps you already have a team but don’t feel you’re getting the best out of them, that you don’t trust them to do the job as you want it done…to meet your high standards consistently.

Just imagine what it would be like if you could change that. 

Imagine what a high-performing team would mean to you and your business.

Imagine taking a few days off knowing that your business is in great hands.

Now stop imagining, and start doing something to make that a reality.

Time to be the Captain of your ship, not the chief cook and bottle washer!
