The business owner who would not hire herself.
Some years ago I asked one of my coaching clients, who has her own business and used to be struggling all the time if she would hire herself to do the job she was doing in her company, based on how she was doing her work. After quite a long pause she said, “No, I probably wouldn´t, I would want more from my employee”.
What about you – would you hire yourself?
Doesn´t matter if you are working for somebody else as an employee or if you are running your own business – would you hire yourself based on the performance you show in your work?
Are you able to live up to the expectations you have of others?
Can you live up to the expectations or meet the demands you make on others?
Do you perform, prioritize, delegate, create opportunities, save cost, make sales – are as you productive, effective and efficient as you want others to be?
If you can honestly say that you would hire yourself for the job you have, based on the performance you are showing, then I think you are doing good.
If not, think about what you need to change – what do you think your boss, your coworkers, your partners, your clients or customers would want you to do differently – what would make you proud?
