Creating a Genius Method vs. Job Description

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.
