How to Reproduce Yourself


From Exponential 2010. Orlando, Florida.

As a leader, no matter what you do, you have to reproduce yourself. Call that person an apprentice, a shadow, or whatever you want… you’ve got to have at least one person you are bringing along. Here’s the process from Dave and John Ferguson.

1) I do. You watch. We talk.
2) I do. You help. We talk.
3) You do. I help. We talk.
4) You do. I watch. We talk.
5) You do. Somebody else watches. The process starts over.

Who is your apprentice? What are your thoughts?
