On October 3, the trio at VisionSpark, Strategic Coach, and Delegate Solutions came together to continue their discussion about the Who Not How concept and how it can impact a Visionary’s life and business when they have the proper Triple Threat Team in place.
Alec Broadfoot of VisonSpark, Shannon Waller of Strategic Coach, and Emily Coombs of Delegate Solutions were joined by Strategic Coach Chad Johnson. Chad provided an enlightening case study about the difference the Triple Threat Team made in his bottle label manufacturing business.
Shannon Waller – The Teamwork Triad
Shannon kicked things off by explaining how Visionaries can have a bigger, better vision of the future when they have a WHO in place to help achieve that vision. Spending too much time on the details of the business can be exhausting and not within the unique ability of a Visionary.
Delegating can be fun, liberating, and powerful when you find the right WHOs. She explained the Teamwork Triad is composed of three important people:
Chad Johnson – The Live Case Study
Chad shared his entrepreneurial journey and how he brought the Triple Threat team to life in his own business.
When he started his bottle label manufacturing company, he recognized that he was a good leader but not a good manager. His business was not growing at the rate he knew it could. He made a list of 50 things he never wanted to do again and hired a Strategic Assistant who loved to do those tasks.
His next hire was an Integrator to make his vision happen. His Integrator created the systems and processes and put accountability in place. The company achieved compounding gains. Chad was able to “stay in his lane” and do the things he was best at doing. When Chad had an idea for a new company, his Integrator helped him launch it, and together they generated $5 million in revenue the first year, $7.6 million the second year, and over $10.3 million the third year.
Chad achieved what every entrepreneur wants: to grow the business while doing what they are great at, watch those around them feel empowered to do what they love to do, and take time to enjoy the four freedoms: freedom of time, money, relationships, and purpose.
