I am a strong believer in “hiring the right people “” and then letting them do their job” but different circumstances call for different management styles.
Once in a while a manager may find himself with a team that needs a little h”” and holding, “” and it may be necessary to be completely immersed in what the team is working on, to ensure they underst”” and the vision that the manager wants to translate.

In 2013 “” and having just become parents, my wife, Leah “” and I were having challenges getting a domestic manager (DM). It was frustrating as we kept changing one after the other. We wondered if there was a place that trained them so that we could get a professional one who was ready to work. I started looking at the business model of security guards’ companies “” and got an idea. What if someone could bring the girls together, train them “” and lease them out?’ I imagined a situation where I could provide such a quick solution.

Last week, I had to re-new my insurance premiums “” and the journey begun from a call with the broker who asked that I take the car for valuation, after which he would send me the report. I would then be required to fill in some new forms, send the payment “” and wait another 48 hours to get my new sticker! This got me thinking about how very little has changed about insurance since I bought my first car 22 years ago. Actually, the only difference in the process is that my assistant is now able to pay using mobile money as opposed to queuing at the bank. If anything, the certificate was actually processed on the same day but the paper work seems to be a constant, or even more.
