Hard decisions have to be made every single day. Sometimes they have to be made where we remove any personal desires from a specific outcome we want from a situation. We make personal decisions, business decisions, and decisions that ultimately affect decisions of others. The easy way is always a great option, but true leaders do not take the easy way. It’s never an option. Today’s podcast is a true picture of how true leaders make impactful decisions in the real world.
Josh Wilson is Founder and CEO of JW Enterprises, Off-Leash K-9 Training with offices in Virginia, Wisconsin, Michigan, Iowa, and Texas. He’s the founder and host of The Big Dog Podcast talking about life and business with people from all walks of life.
Tom and Josh have been acquainted for the last 2 years in Apex and they jump in like two friends sitting at a bar having a drink as they talk about the importance of making hard decisions, sometimes unpopular ones, and the weight of responsibility that comes with making them. Josh shares a couple of FOMO moments in his life recently, but stuck to his immovable commitment to his clients, his employees, and his executive team by putting them first. Josh and Tom talk about the value of investing in good employees and the disconnect many employers have when they look at the numbers on the P & L. They discuss the hiring process and how they set people up for success inside their organizations by looking closely at their true talents and assigning them to positions accordingly. Tom and Josh talk about the bullshit excuses we all tell ourselves and the importance of mindset and the biggest lie we tell ourselves about having everything we want.
What You’ll Learn:
“That audit of your personal time and more importantly of the staff you do have, their time, is like where can we maximize? We’ve shifted people to so many different roles, hired them for one thing and figured out they would thrive somewhere else and do better. It’s a matter of figuring out the right seat. Just because they’re in the car with you doesn’t mean they’re in the right position.”
