Episode 11 with Paul McGillivray from Remote New Media – Adding more meaning to your work

 

Key Takeaways

  • If a job is so simple, logical and repeatable – should we be spending our lives doing tasks like this?!
  • The jobs of the future will focus on the human sides of us, the compassionate and emotional side of us that robots can’t replace.
  • If you’re serious about accelerating your business growth – join a coaching accelerator – Paul recommends the Key Person of Influence KPI Group  
  • Before outsourcing – keep a notebook and write down the jobs that you do and track how much time it takes you and identify the things you spend the most time on and what you want to outsource or continue doing.
  • When building your team look at values-based recruitment – make sure you employ people that are fully aligned with the values of your business – it’s a deeper relationship than just recruiting based on skills.
  • Failure isn’t a thing – it’s a way of learning how to do something better next time
