The Race to Contact w/Pat Hiban

May 25, 2017

A lot of leaders don’t want to create leaders because the attention will go away from them to other people. Why is it so necessary to be driven by developing talent, and how can you make sure the information and value you’re giving translates to execution? On this episode, Pat Hiban joins us to discuss upholding culture in virtual teams, how lead generation has changed, and the power of taking your people to the next level.

Great leaders aren’t going to go to work for someone who is a worse leader than they are. - Pat Hiban

Takeaways + Tactics

- Once you win the race to contact, it comes back to skill.

- There’s a huge difference between self-leadership for your passion, and self-leadership on something you’re not passionate about.

- When it comes to responding to leads, the proper response time is real time.

At the start of the show, we shared on developing talent and the importance of getting people to execute on the information available, and why leaders need to determine their true intentions and the essence behind what they do. We also discussed why great leaders will only work for great leaders, how leadership affects retention, and whether proximity is important in companies. Towards the end of the show,

We also spoke about:

  • Why successful expansion boils down to leadership
  • Managing relationships in virtual companies
  • How to teach self-leadership to someone who doesn’t have passion
  • Whether it’s getting harder to build relationships cold

The process of getting a lead is text, email, phone and appointment. Shortchanging this process puts you at risk of losing the relationship altogether. As a leader, it’s your job to hire good people and grow them, and make sure all the information you provide turns into action and results. Expansion only works if the person you hire on the other end is dynamite. The purpose of all the new things that are out there is to improve conversion, but they still need relationships to be effective. You’re still going to need to get more people into your ecosystem by picking up the phone and making the calls. To win, remember the competition is on speed first, then on skill.
