Office Hours & Expectations are Essential • When setting office hours, think about team size, location, and your schedule • Communicate to them what to expect • Make sure they have realistic expectations • Stick to them, if you don’t your team won’t • Remember what we allow, we teach • Thirty-One hat comes OFF when office hours are over
“Visualize a wagon wheel as a complete team. A leader might be the hub of the wheel at the center. Now suppose the spokes are the connecting relationships the leader is building with people on the outer rim of the wheel. If the hub is removed, then the entire wheel collapses. In a situation like that, if a team loses the leader, the entire team collapses.” -Coach K
Plan what you will do and do what you plan. Failing to plan is the same as planning to fail!

The key to using the 80/20 rule is to focus on the 20 percent who are presently producing while not forgetting the 80 percent who may produce in the future.
Points to Ponder • When dealing with your team ALWAYS match effort with effort! • Not everyone deserves, wants, or needs equal time from you. • You cannot work her business more than she is willing to work it. You cannot make her want it and you cannot push someone UP a ladder. • Set phone appointments & you call them!!! • Understand that as you grow & promote your priorities will change and eventually you will shift to a heavier team business than personal.

Time Saving Tips • Use an email system and set it to autorespond(Constant Contact or Mail Chimp) • Calendar blocking is key (green shows, red family, etc) • The more you communicate with your team, the less time you spend answering questions • Point them to the answer and teach them to fish (TOT, emails, etc)
Time Saving Tips • Focus on single tasking - you may be doing more than one thing at a time but are you doing them all well? • Be prepared for downtime/plan ahead • Look for holes in your daily/weekly schedule and find ways to fill them (carpool line, dr office, dance class, etc) • Bring the post office home • Eat your frog first each day
