The Power of Leadership & Delegation: Promote Your VA to Achieve Coaching Business Success

Updated: Dec 5, 2023

Are you tired of being trapped in the never-ending cycle of handling business tasks on your own? It's time to level up as a visionary leader and delegate like a boss!

As an online coach or course creator, you're familiar with the overwhelming responsibilities that come with the role. It's quite challenging to juggle everything at once, right? But here's the thing: hiring virtual assistants can be a game-changer if done right. In this blog, we'll guide you on a journey to transform your role from a task administrator to a visionary leader, unleashing your true potential and achieving remarkable success.

Embracing Leadership

Somewhere along the way, do you find yourself caught up in a never-ending cycle of task delegation and supervision? Your days are consumed by checking on progress, managing deadlines, and handling administrative work. Suddenly, you realize your weekends are gone, and you're left wondering how you ended up in this administrative nightmare.

Let's start by understanding the difference between administration and leadership. While administration focuses on delegating tasks and being in charge, leadership is about providing guidance, motivation, and inspiration to your team. It's about inspiring them to achieve the big goals you've set for your business.

In this video, we explored the realm of leadership and how it can transform your collaboration with virtual assistants. We talked about how we can promote our virtual assistants. If you can take a fraction of your time, you can check it here.

This time, we'll take your business to new heights and unleash your true potential as a visionary leader. Are you ready to make the leap? Let's get started!

Become the Visionary-Leader by Scaling Your Business with your Virtual Assistants

Think of this like a philharmonic orchestra. The conductor—that's the administrator. They're "conducting" the musicians in your orchestra. But take a closer look... Who's the real hero here? It's the sheet music! You are the artist, the visionary who founded your business. So, are you going to let yourself get stuck playing every instrument in the orchestra?

Let me stop you right there before you pick up another fiddle. Put that down! Remind yourself that you are the leader, the boss. You provide the vision. Your job is to communicate your vision to your team and build a strong enough team member to rise up and become the conductor. In short, if you really want your business to grow exponentially, you shouldn't be doing the grunt work forever. After starting out and ensuring the system is working, delegate the grunt work to your team.

Top Tip: How to Tell If a Task Should Be Delegated or Outsourced

To grow exponentially, you need to break free from the cycle of grunt work. Delegation is the key to unleashing your true potential. A clear indication that you need to start outsourcing or delegating your tasks is when you feel an ounce of frustration from doing repetitive work. If it's a task or project that repeats itself over a set period of time or when specific circumstances arise, that's the indication that your business is ripe for scaling. Be extra mindful and consciously observe your business activities. If there are tasks like the ones I described, those are tasks you can delegate to your team. Don't keep doing them yourself. Let go!

The 4 Signs Showing that Your Virtual Assistant is Ready for Promotion

Now, let's dive into the signs that show your virtual assistant is ready for promotion. These signs highlight their loyalty, work ethic, organizational skills, and commitment to self-learning.

#1 Your Virtual Assistant has Loyalty.

If your virtual assistant calls you out when you make a mistake, holds you accountable, and genuinely cares about your business's welfare, then your virtual assistant is loyal. They are not just there for the paycheck but actively contribute to the success of your business. They're keeping you in check not just on your business but also your growth as a person. Treat your virtual assistant with respect and value their loyalty.

#2 Your Virtual Assistant has a Work Ethic.

If your virtual assistant with a strong work ethic goes above and beyond their assigned responsibilities, then they have a good work ethic. They meet deadlines, take initiative, pay attention to detail, and show self-motivation. They are like productivity superheroes, anticipating your needs and contributing to the growth of your business.

#3 Your Virtual Assistant is Organized.

Do you find yourself struggling with organization and systematizing tasks? If your virtual assistant that excels in this area can help you, then your virtual assistant is organized. They can help you communicate your projects and plans effectively, creating systems and processes to streamline your business tasks. Trust them to take on this responsibility and free yourself from the burden of managing every detail.

#4 Your Virtual Assistant is committed to Self-Learning.

If your virtual assistant is committed to self-learning and continuously seeks opportunities to improve their skills, then they are all set for promotion. They engage in continuous learning, take the initiative to develop new skills, seek feedback, and stay updated with industry trends. Having a self-learning virtual assistant ensures they can adapt and grow with your business, eventually taking on more significant administrative roles.

Check if your virtual assistant has these 4 signs of readiness for promotion.

How did they help you with your coaching business? If they have the following signs, then you can promote them. Moreover, if you feel that they somewhat lack any of the signs listed above, you can help them improve themselves by providing guidance and unwavering support.

Final Thoughts

With the signs of readiness for promotion, you can identify whether your virtual assistant is the right fit to become a trusted conductor and administrator for your business. Remember, leadership is about delegating and focusing on your vision, while administration is about managing day-to-day operations. Also, hiring a virtual assistant is the easy part; keeping them around and maximizing their potential is the real challenge. So, don't hesitate to assess your virtual assistant's potential and provide them with the guidance and support they need to excel. Let's make your virtual assistant your best business sidekick ever!

So, Coach, do you still feel trapped? Did this blog give you an idea on how to get yourself out of the never-ending cycle of handling business tasks on your own? It's time for you to level up as a visionary leader and delegate like a boss!

Working alone in your business?

The business that you were so passionate about when you first started...but lately, you've been feeling like it's swallowing you whole.

Because, if you didn't turn the wheels in your business, who will?

Your free time must be disappearing as you work on email backlogs, unanswered social media DMs, video/podcast editing, client onboarding, and a BAZILLION other tasks you hardly have time for.😢

This is usually what happens when you have no team to back you up.

You probably had a solo virtual assistant in the past, but it didn't work out because you didn't have a task delegation system yet.

Maybe your virtual assistant needed you to train them, but you just didn't have the time and the mood for hand holding. You need someone who can hit the ground running!

Or, it could be that you did find an amazing virtual assistant, but they couldn't take up the huge load of work. It was too much for one person to handle.

So they quit on you, and now you're back to square one. 😭

It's important for you to know that

this is NOT your fault. 🙅

You are just trying to build your business empire. 💰

Because you've had so much business coming in, your task load is also growing at a rate
that you can't keep up with anymore. 🚀
