KEEP WORKING EVEN WHEN YOU HAVE EMPLOYEES


LAW: Excerpt from the book
48 Laws Of Architectural Consulting


KEEP WORKING EVEN WHEN YOU HAVE EMPLOYEES
Don’t hire staff to replace you, hire people to help you keep being great at what YOU do.

As is very common with every business owner or professional practitioner, the moment they find someone who can stand in for them at work, they become lazy and start skipping their own CEO duties. The tendency to become slack with tasks that they ordinarily would have attended to keenly sets in and this is a natural human feeling often fueled by the belief that they (employees) are being paid to do ‘the work’ therefore we don’t have to do anything, any more.
