In this thread I try to explain how I need somebody that can get a lot of work done without a lot of guidance from me.
In this thread I explore the difference between a level 2 person and a level 7 person. Naturally, for this position I would prefer a level 7 person, but would consider a level 2 person with plans on growing into a level 7 person.
After reading through your posts here's what I'm gathering.
You need to delegate. You need to delegate hard.
You need people that can do work for you.
You don't want to pay for that work.
You also don't want to train anyone because you don't have the time.
What you want is experts to come in and work for you for free
...free in the sense that it doesn't cost you anything because they've set up their own business.
What happens when those experts need grunts?
From what I can tell you need a full time HR trainer. Someone that can teach classes on all the simple things.
An on call trainer. Someone with the gift of teaching.
paul: shit i need X by next month. that'll take me 300 units
trainer: hows that work exactly?
paul: spends 10 units educating trainer
train: 20 units training self
trainer: 100 units teaching class of ten
students: give 30 units each
trainer: 30 units supervising
paul: 1 unit overseeing
It's no 1:100. but 1:30 isn't so bad. not to mention there are now 10 more people that can do X and the trainer can teach that without any inputs.
...am I making sense? lol I hope I'm making sense.
