As the CEO of a business, when you go around your team members, you create fear and uncertainty in your team.

I’ve seen this pattern in hundreds of businesses, and it took me years to create systems to break those patterns myself. What you have to see is that you have no idea of the position and stature you have in the lives of the people who work with you, especially if you are hands-off in operations and tactics. You hold a mythical place in their minds.

When you get involved in things you aren’t usually involved in, from the team member’s perspective, they will find it overwhelming. That type of behavior of going from CEO who is hands off to diving down to someone on a tactical level and correcting them, you are having a massive impact and creating fear in the team member and the entire team.

Creating systems around the people will help protect the people on your team and allow you to communicate with them effectively. Clear communication, clear planning systems, and an easy to use chain of command will help everyone on your team know what is going on and increase everyone’s performance. Respect the structure, and your entire business will shift.

If you are growing a business and want to put the right structure in place, go to billionairecode.com and set up a call with a member of our team to go through a Strategy Session to see where you are and what you need to scale and grow your team.
