Episode 57: 8 Secrets to Level up as a Leader

Like it or not, when you’re the owner of a Trades Business you are a leader. And leading your team is actually your most important role in the company.

The problem most people find when they get to be in this position is that nobody ever taught them how to be a good leader, let alone a great one.

That means they have to make it up on the job.

Some people manage to do it well. But most do a really bad job of it. And a lot of the time they might not even know it…

The downstream effects of bad leadership can turn a good business into a bad one.

And vice versa with good leadership.

That’s why in today’s podcast Tony and Phil are going to help you take the guesswork out of how to be a good leader.

You’ll be less frustrated with your team because they’ll be performing better and showing the initiative you want them too.

Plus you’ll find hiring and retaining the best employees much easier too. Which is really helpful because you’ll find that with successful leadership your business will be growing smoother and faster than ever…

Let’s get into it…
