Heather du Plessis-Allan Drive

Christchurch City Council has voted to release a controversial draft transport plan to public view. Councillor Aaron Keown and mayoral hopeful Phil Mauger led the bid for its release. It's against the wishes of staff, who feared public release would see its proposals for congestion charges and road tolls taken out of context. Draft developer, councillor Mike Davidson told Heather du Plessis-Allan he agrees it needed to see daylight. LISTEN ABOVESee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

You don’t always get what you want, but you always get what you choose. Are you choosing to be in the weeds of business every day or do you want your business to run without you? Determine what you value and your culture will follow. Transitions in the business- be an owner, you hired employees to do a job so let them. Train them well so they can leave, but treat them so well that they don’t want to. Don’t micromanage. What I’ve learned- learn from everyone no matter what their status or level is. Everyone learns based on their experience, knowledge, and skill. Allow people to grow, owners are often the biggest obstacle. Think about the vision, cast the vision, and let your employees make the vision. lifted burdens- watch people grow from where they are to where they want to be.  Don’t create more work for you as an owner, grow employees. Employees who lead- should be taught the responsibility they have of leadership no matter their position. They will continue to grow. Your business is only as strong as the weakest employee. They need to reflect your values.  Your responsibility as an owner- coachability, valuing people, mentors, communicating vision Leadershift- based on the 15 laws of growth written by John Maxwell. 15-week course for employees of businesses. Grow employees in their current roles. Owners choose who their leaders will be based on current behavior. Leadership is learned, everyone has the ability.

You can reach Mike at miked@parkwayautomotive.net    Listen to Mike’s other episodes HERE. Key Talking Points Lesson 6 Assigning responsibility- step back and watch. Difference between delegation and developing people. Delegation- giving people things you don’t want to do. Developing - giving people things you do want to do, but allowing someone else to do it. Have policies in an accessible place (digital)- find out answers on their own. Well-written policies bring value to the business for selling in the future. Lesson 7 Identifying the people in your organization that are willing to invest in themselves- giving people opportunity, you can change without growing but you can’t grow without change. Change pertains to the future that will be impacted by what you do today. Renewing the mind of employees’ responsibility to grow as leaders. Doesn’t happen in a day, but it happens daily. Training questions to ask: what did you learn? How did you apply it? Why didn’t you (if the answer is no). Who takes initiative? Lesson 8 Developing meetings without you- separating shop into small teams I.e. 1 service advisor and 2 technicians. Allow them to work to solve their own problems, set up their own meetings monthly with two subjects to go over. What are areas of growth for each?. Gives service advisors responsibilities and authority. The owner meets with service advisors once a quarter Lesson 9 Letting go- the hardest part for an owner, there is an emotional attachment to the business. You can still have ideas, but let your second in command implement them. Self-discipline to let things go. Don’t tell employees what to think, ask questions to help them to think. Lesson 10 What does your day look like now? Develop your life and calendar. Sit at a certain time of the week and plan that calendar. Send a copy to all staff. Interruptions became less and less.
