Enforcing the standards in your company and not being everyone’s buddy doesn’t mean you aren’t likable. It just means that you make the tough decisions when they are needed—that’s what a leader does. Tom’s here to remind you to stop being friends with your employees.

In this episode, we talk about… 

  • The DiSC profile—(D)ominance, (i)nfluence, (S)teadiness, (C)onscientiousness
  • Being clear on the code of conduct of your business
  • Befriending your employees is harmful to your company’s future, employees’ ability to grow, and your capability to lead.
  • Keep yourself from being friends with your employees—as a leader, you need to take responsibility for your team, set a new standard, communicate and enforce it.
  • You can’t be trusted as a leader if you’re not consistently showing up with the communication
  • Leadership is influence—if you really want to have influence over your team, you’ve got to build the habit of getting uncomfortable yourself.
  • Your number one job is to create leverage in your company and lift everybody up with you
