Do you consider yourself a visionary?
I’ve had the pleasure of working with many visionaries over the past several years and I was just speaking to a couple this past week and it got me thinking about the specific challenges that a visionaries face when they want to run a business.
A visionary is somebody who thinks in very big, abstract ideas. They have a wonderful, amazing goal – a big vision of how they want to see their life unfold. And in terms of business, what they want that business to look like.
They are very much an “ideas” person and they usually have a thousand ideas! Ideas for programs and workshops and all kinds of things.
But one of the biggest challenges that a visionary faces is they are not a detailed person. They have a really hard time actually fulfilling their vision.
The reason why I bring this up is because sometimes we are not really aware of what our strengths and weaknesses are. A strength for a visionary person is they are the ones who are coming up with these amazing ideas. They are inventors.
Their weakness is they keep starting something, get bored with it and stop it because that’s not comfortable for them.
They are not in a place of passion and joy when they are needing to fulfill that vision.
This is important because visionaries need to have somebody opposite to them on their team.Visionaries need to have someone on their team who are opposite to them: someone detail-orientedClick To Tweet
I had a conversation with a visionary the other day and this person was expressing concern because this person did have VA on their team but there seemed to be some challenges. We had determined this VA was also somewhat of a visionary who wasn’t able to be the exact opposite to what this person needed.
What the visionary needs is somebody who is very detail oriented. Who will pick up and finish what they started and be able to guide that visionary through all the steps of what is needed. It’s like being a coach in many ways.
As a visionary, it’s important you find the right people on your team. You don’t want other visionaries.
You need people who are going to support you and fulfill your vision so you don’t have to mire yourself in the details.
You need somebody who can pick up those pieces, who are competent enough to know exactly what it is you need and run with it. Instead of you having to be the one to tell them, “this is what I need and this is how I need you to do it.”
I hope this tip helps on hiring somebody for your team whether it’s a VA or somebody who is helping you with other things like your website work, graphic design needs, social media or whatever that is.
Make sure you hire somebody who is very detail oriented who could be the perfect complement to your visionary personality.
