The Value of Teamwork

By | Blogpost, excellence, Goals, inspirations, management, opportunities, Success | No Comments

How has your 2018 been? And what has been some of your wins and some of your lessons throughout the first week of the 2019? I’d love to hear from you. What have been some of your wins? What have been some of your lessons?

This is a great opportunity as we welcome another year – having a review of the week, the month, the quarter, the year of what’s been some of your wins and some of your lessons.

I was in the Philippines last December where I spent four, five days with the whole team over there, just to really start to map out the year. It was an honor and a privilege. I also took my daughter and introduced her to the team. And I think, I found my succession plan.

She had the opportunity to present in front of our team and really embracing it. Also, the shopping – she loves the shopping over there. Oh my goodness! Next level.

But it was a good opportunity to spend some quality time with her, just a daddy-daughter time. And really honored – it’s a privileged to have that opportunity.

The Power of Team

One of the things, and biggest lessons that we learned was the power of team – and power of enrolling the team.

We arrived – the team have already started their strategy session on a Saturday, we arrived Saturday night. And we got into the team meeting on a Sunday. And I walked into the room and they said, “Just to let you know, we’ve already mapped out the next six months for you.”

I was like, “Alright!? Cool.” And what the most amazing thing was, when we reviewed what they had gone through the day before – I had done some previous planning up until, for this time together. It was exactly the same as I had mapped out – they didn’t know this that I had mapped out previously on what they had mapped out the day before.

And so, that was the biggest lesson for me is – Wow! We’ve got an amazing team. So aligned and so on the same page where they’ve been working on the sideline and I’ve been, you know, getting some planning down – coming together and we’re all on the same page.

Once again huge win and huge lesson. So, what are some of your wins? What are some of your lessons?

Hopefully you got to take some time out over the holidays and just had fun, spent quality time with love ones, spent some time with friends and family – and reflected on 2018. And now, start thinking about what 2019 looks like.

So, there we go! Let’s all make 2019 bigger, better and brighter.

Lessons for the Year: What’s Worked for 2018

By | Blogpost, Goals, mindset, opportunities, Success | No Comments

It’s another opportunity to review the week, and probably review the whole year.

What has been some of your wins and some of your lessons throughout this week? It’s a good time to just stop and reflect to say, “Hey! You have gone throughout the week.”

What are you most proud of? What have been some of the things that you’ve hanged out high and say, “Wow! That’s been a good week.”

What’s been some of the lessons that you can take away and go, “You know what? This is what I learned. This is an Aha moment.” Or “this is what I need to be doing differently next week.”

So, it’s an opportunity to really – as we come through this next little time, to sprint towards the end. And also to reflect on how the year has gone for you.

What has been some of the wins and the setbacks? Some of the lessons and what do we maybe doing differently for 2019.

I’d love to hear from you. What has been some of your wins? What are you most proud of this week? And what have been some of the lessons?

Wins for 2018

We had a great opportunity this week to present to a lot of different organizations.

We’re at the McGrath St. George during their monthly conference. We talked about their genius and we talked about their superpowers. We also talked about how to tap into their genius and how to really start to map-out 2019.

We were also at Tyler Nicholas where we talked about, obviously, how to build your teams. And also communication, which is a really important factor throughout this market where we are at the business world today.

I also had the opportunity, which is pretty cool, to be at the opening of a new sports store called Decathlon. It is a new huge sports store in Auburn. Being in the trail running ambassador, I was fortunate enough to be there.

What Have We Learned?

When I look back over this week, particularly the two presentations that I delivered with the two companies, is we went through the four review questions.

And those review questions is a great way to just to take stock and do this on a weekly, monthly, quarterly or annually process.

Let’s review the four questions once again:

  1. What’s worked for me this week?
    • What’s been some of the wins?
    • What’s been some of the things that I’m most proud of?
    • What’s really worked?
  2. What didn’t work? What’s been some of the setbacks and some of the challenges?
  3. What are some of my lessons? What are the Aha moments that I learned this week or this month, or whatever time period that you are reviewing?
  4. What do I need to be doing differently?

This is a perfect segway into 2019. When we can take and review your whole year and look at – “Okay, what are some of the things that really worked for me this year?”

What Will Be Different in 2019?

When you look at the different areas of your business, look at the different areas of your life both personally and professionally.

What are the things that didn’t work? What are the setbacks and challenges? What were the key lessons that we took away from work and also on the personal front.

And moving into 2019, how’s it going to be different? What are you going to do different? How’s it going to measure up compared to 2018?

So, it’s a great opportunity to really review. It’s an opportunity to review the year. We deep dive a little bit more in the year and we look at the different quarters. We also need to look at the different areas of your business and personally.

And we start to do the high-level planning for 2019. So you can break and you can free your mind, and really relax and restore, rejuvenate over the Christmas period.

So, there we go – Finish it Fridays, an opportunity to review the week – and the year.

An opportunity to think. What are some of your wins? What are some of your lessons throughout this week?

Looking forward to hearing from you soon. Have a wonderful holiday.

Creating a Genius Method vs. Job Description

By | excellence, Goals, management, mindset | No Comments

I attended the referral marketing course with the legend himself, Michael Griffiths, a few weeks ago and I’d like to share some of the key lessons and learnings that I picked up after the course.

In our businesses, in our organisation, we have created positions, and job description. And while it tells what each of us should be doing, what it does is it boxes and categorizes everyone. It’s called job description.

Job description tells us what we should do, but it does not explain why we should be doing these things. It does not clearly show where and how important our contributions are to the team and to keep the business running.

When we are categorized and boxed in, the job description becomes the goal and the measure of our performance. What happens is –  we fail to spot other opportunities, other avenues where we could contribute to the business.

There are times when our skills and abilities make us capable of handling more than what is on our job description, but because we are placed in a category where the job description becomes our end goal and our unit of measure, we lose the opportunity to contribute more.

We’ve just shot an awesome little video in our group called the Real Estate Tribe, and it’s all about creating your genius within your team. I say, throw away your job descriptions. Throw away those boring job descriptions that you have within your companies. Because, you know what? Really, they don’t work.

It’s about creating the genius method within those roles to ensure that there’s accountability, to ensure that you’ve actually got the right team members onboard first, and ensuring that everyone’s clearly knows what’s happening and why’s it happening – and they’re accountable to what’s happening.

So, I’d love to share that video to you. If you want a copy of the video, just simply type in “TRIBE” below and I’ll send you an invite to the Real Estate Tribe so you can watch the full version of that video.

I’d also like to take this opportunity to hear your thoughts. I’d love to hear what’s been happening. What are your key lessons and what are your key wins that you want to share for this week? Have you had a good week? Or are you still trying to swim through the rest of the week?

So, there we go! Comment below, share your thought and let’s see how we can help each other.
