Podcast 117 - Are you Proactive or Reactive in Your Management?
So many farming families I meet feel completely REACTIVE in managing their farms. On so many levels, we often are left feeling like the business is running you, not you it. With all that is going on in a typical week, the long list of improvements to make, the complexities of programs and rotations, the changes of the season… for me, it is easy to see why so many arrive here.
One of my favourite quotes is from global personal performance expert Brian Tracy:
“We feel good about ourselves to the exact degree we feel in control of our lives.”
Three questions for you:
Are you feeling reactive or proactive in your leadership?
Out of 10, how much control do you feel you have over the improvement of your plan?
Out of 10, how aligned are your family & team to a common goal and clear plan?
In this episode, I speak with Farm Owners Academy CEO Sam Johnsson. Sam commenced with us two years ago, following a highly successful corporate leadership career in a large design & engineering consultancy.
In this episode, we explore:
why people are feeling so reactive in their farms right now;
where staying this way can take us; and
the exact process we use and recommend to help people shift to proactive and take control.
The power of a concise, agile and actionable STRATEGIC PLAN is key in helping farming families make the shift.
The Farm Owners Academy team recently met in the Barossa Valley for two days to reset our Strategic Plan. During our conversation, we share the process we went through, the same process we coach EVERY farm business that commits to our three-year Platinum Mastermind Program.
