When Will You Be Ready to HAND OFF? The NEW 80/20 Rule
When will YOU be ready to Hand OFF and move to your next 'Big Thing'? Use the 80/20 Rule...a new interpretation.
In Leadership Glue: Be the GLUE in Your Business without Getting Stuck in the Daily Grind we address how to go from Hands ON to Hands FREE to Hand OFF so you can grow your business, have financial and time freedom, and get on to the next big thing you are meant to be doing next.
The Hand OFF phase is often challenging for Business Owners because it means they have to have faith in their team to keep the daily operations going. This transition brings up fears of letting go too soon, not trusting the process, and the "monkey mind" spiraling out of control with thoughts of failure and doom.
But, there's a litmus test you can use to gauge when you, and your team, is ready for a Hand OFF.
I just learned about it...it's the NEW interpretation of the 80/20 Rule.
The new interpretation, as it applies to Hand OFF, is that you are ready to Hand OFF when your team can do the task/project/job 80% as well as you can. Then they are ready to step up and you are ready to step away.
It's like a runner handing off the baton in a relay race to an equally competent teammate who can take the baton across the finish line.
80% ability to do the task or project as well as you...that's the way to measure when it's time to Hand OFF. A competent team will pick up the next 20% without too much difficulty.
