Bestselling author and certified executive coach Hamid Safaei helps business leaders, senior managers, and budding entrepreneurs multiply their results by helping them personally grow to the next level.
Hamid recently had a fantastic interview with Dean Allen of the BookPals Business Sanity Podcast that provides tips to help make business owners’ lives easier. Hamid shared lessons and perspectives on highly effective leadership, much like those that are covered in his thought-provoking book, First Class Leadership: How Highly Effective Teams Can Achieve Breakthrough Results. The interview touched on the business owners’ mindsets, focusing on taking their business to higher levels of success by growing and recruiting more staff. When business growth includes an increase in employees as one of its components, the people side of the business typically becomes more of a focus.
According to Hamid, the only way to grow your business successfully when you bring in more staff is by being a more effective leader. In other words, there is a lot more to business growth than simply making the decision to recruit more staff. As his book outlines wonderfully, there are other things to think about when you make that decision.
Hamid also shared that he started his business journey when he was just 14 years old. He was passionate about leading and about personal development. That forced him to study organizational management. His passion on the subject connected him with first class leaders in politics and business. Hamid revealed that while he learned a lot from them, he also served as their coach. This brought him to where he is currently at with a strong desire to give back to society as an author, a public speaker and a coach.
In the interview, Hamid also touched on the following:
- What first class leadership is and how people can become first class leaders.
- The qualities of first class leaders and what they should develop for first.
- What first class leaders have mastered.
- How to create a fire in the bellies of your followers.
- How to make decisions as a leader.
- The importance of surrounding yourself with smart people.
