We all know that accountability is important, especially when you have a Virtual Assistant. For your business to run like a well-oiled machine, each member must be fully optimized, each one knowing their role and the responsibilities that come with that role. We also know that to run a successful Real Estate business entails multiple processes, from generating leads to filing paperwork, making calls, etc. Therefore, every person and their corresponding roles count. So how do you ensure that each person in your team, including yourself, is doing their part, and how do you hold everyone accountable, especially if you have a Virtual Assistant who you cannot possibly monitor all day as they work?

In the video below, MyOutdesk Owner Daniel Ramsey has a discussion with the Founder of Pipeline Wizard, Jesse Garcia, about the benefits of using a system like Pipeline Wizard to keep track of each member of your team and of the steps and actions you need to take to achieve optimum results. Not only will you be able to see how each member of your team is performing, but you will also be able to get a clear picture of the potential of each piece of “tangible business” from a “motivational standpoint.”

At MyOutDesk, our Virtual Assistants are coached and trained on the importance of accountability and are made aware of the important role each of them will play as a key member of your team. We also assist in setting up different ways for you to track their progress and their work without having to monitor them closely after you train them and inject them into your business structure.

It does take a little bit of time to train them to get them to optimal performance within your set-up, and it will take consistent audits and check-ins; however, you will find that creating an environment where you hold each person accountable for their work, whether it is for a mistake or for hitting it out of the ballpark, fosters an environment of excellence, loyalty, and dedication.

Whether you use Pipeline Wizard or other systems like it, you will find that you create a stable and fruitful foundation that will help push your yield higher and higher. Whether it is to troubleshoot or examine whether you are ready to take things to the next level, to be able to pull your numbers and examine the next steps for you and your business can be infinitely priceless.
