In every situation, being proactive about tasks and deadlines has helped me to acheive my personal brand. For example, working with clients to determine a digital strategy and then implementing every aspect of it. In general, referrals happen more frequently when we can deliver what is promised early - going above and beyond, anticipating client needs - being proactive.
On a team, being proactive is very hard to delegate - but delegation means growth for your company and being proactive means more referrals.
Here are four tips to encourage others to be more proactive:
- Get to know your employees' skills - then give them the right kind of assignment (and don't nitpick).
- Purchase software, hire an instructor, help others focus on the right tasks to do their job more effectively.
- Be a role model.
- Let go.
Letting go often results in company growth because you know the right people and the right resources are in place.
