Part of growing a business is hiring people to take over and continue work that is already being done. We are often asked when a founder should train someone else to do work they were previously doing. Our answer is collectively “Trust your people to do the work.” Today we discuss how to trust your staff to do the work and still meet your standards.

The points we talked about today are:

  • How to become “an editor”
  • Seeing the results of the work with the goal in mind
  • Why you should offer “advice” instead of criticism
  • The questions to ask when results don’t meet your standards
  • Delegating and hiring for work based on who “owns” their job

Transitioning out of a job is a hard growing process for any founder, and any company. We hope today’s episode will help with that transition.
