5 steps to take before you hire!

As a business owner, there’s only so much you can do with your available time. Unfortunately, there’s always going to be things you don’t know how to do and don’t have the time to learn. When you’re trying to do everything yourself, you can only grow your business so far, before you’re tired of your business looking a mess and crave a bit more order, automation – and dare I say it – a little extra help. What you need my friend, is a Director of Operations!

What is a Director of Operations?

A Director of Operations (DOO), is a professional who handles your back-end operations for you & is involved in overseeing various aspects of a company’s operations. This frees you up to concentrate on the core activities only you can do – the money-making side of the business, billable hours and generally being seen as the face of your business.

How a Director of Operations can support you

There’s only so much you can do on an average day. But when you have a Director of Operations behind you, you don’t need to stress about your workload. Tasks such as hiring new team members/contractors, finding outsourcers to work with, holding staff meetings, and looking after the general day-to-day business operations can all be handled by your DOO.

The beauty of having a DOO beside you is they become your strategic partner & the middleman between you and your team. They sort out the problems and iron out the wrinkles in your systems and processes. The only time you’re needed ‘back of house’, is if there’s something you really are required to deal with. Basically, your DOO is working behind the scenes to make you and your business look great!

How a Director of Operations can support your business

So apart from looking good, what does having a Director of Operations mean for your business? 

Well, it means you’ll have Standard Operating Procedures to follow, as they’ll all be set up and monitored by your DOO. They’ll also integrate systems, processes, workflows and automations that will help your business run efficiently and effectively. A DOO can manage your projects and teams for you, and help your employees and business as a whole, work towards achieving your business mission and vision.

Your business has room to grow, as there’s someone with the know-how, experience and skills managing the back-end operations. As the business owner, you’re often either too close to things to see what is and isn’t working well and when you do, you don’t always know how to improve it. Your DOO loves this side of business!

But most importantly, having a Director of Operations means you’re free to do what you’re great at. Far too often, business owners get bogged down and confused by back-office operations they either don’t understand or have the time to deal with. When you have a DOO as your partner working behind the scenes, you know your business is set up to run better and grow faster, without extra stress and pressure on you.
