As aspiring leaders in the real estate industry, there are many things we need to think about in terms of ourselves, our team, our business, our consumers and our market. What mindset do we need to have? How can we support our continual growth? How can we develop a good company culture? What systems and strategies can we use to help us grow?
In this episode, Ryan O’Neill talks about his growth and experiences as a team leader, and what we need to do in order to have a team that feels valued and adds value.
Takeaways + Tactics
- One of the first things we have to determine as a team leader is what’s valuable to agents in our market. We need to develop and structure our organization so that we can give support that is legitimate and helpful.
- Building anything meaningful requires a lot of effort. Rather than racing to get to where we want to be, we should be working slowly and steadily.
- Always try to look at value from the consumer’s perspective. What may seem valuable to you is not always valuable to others.
When managing a team and growing a business, we as team leaders need to make sure that our team feels valued and that our business is providing value. By determining what our team needs, prioritizing steady and consistent growth, and really understanding what our agents and consumers find valuable, we can set ourselves up for meaningful growth and success in our business.
