Glad you asked. Let’s look and see how Jaaxy can help you lead.

Let’s look at all the components it provides straight from their website and then answer this question at the end.

Keywords

There are over 500 million BRAND NEW keywords searched every day in Google alone. That is the reality of the keyword market. To truly leverage the billions of keywords in existence, you need a keyword tool like Jaaxy that can “dig” as deep as you want.

Niches

One of the quickest ways to help build influence within an area you like, such as leadership, is to use tools that give you a big voice. There is no other tool that compares with the use of the internet.

There are 100,000’s of evergreen niches out there that are ripe for the picking by using the internet. Being able to discover niches in intelligent new ways is something that Jaaxy prides itself on.

Competition 

Sometimes the best way to WIN at SEO is to understand what your competition is doing. Then determine what “ranking factors” are contributing to their rankings. This can be easily determined through the Search Analysis algorithm in Jaaxy which will take the results from any search and uncover what the top ranked websites are doing in your Niche that is showing them to have such great influence. Jaaxy can help you lead and become one of the great influential places that people will learn from.

Want to enter into a new niche with unbelievable success without spending time doing complex and complicated market and competition research?

This is a reality within Jaaxy as you will be able to reverse engineer any successful website, right down the keyword density, meta tags, Alexa rank, content insights, and backlink insights. Plus no need to truly understand all of these words completely because of Jaaxy handles a lot of the heavy lifting so you really only need to know what ranking you want each word or niche to be ranked within and even Jaaxy tells you that. To be a “success” you have to first understand “success”.

Site Rank

Before SiteRank at Jaaxy, it was very difficult to determine where your website that you built to help you have a big influential voice was ranking in Google, Bing, and Yahoo.

SiteRank truly bridges the gap between your website and your awareness as to where it is ranked under the keywords that you choose to “track”. These insights will allow you to quickly determine what website activities are leading to rankings in search and which ones may not be.

Domains

If you are wanting to build or have built a website for this influential voice you are about to have, every search within Jaaxy will reveal which .com, .org and .net domains are available for the given keyword. An average search will reveal MANY high traffic, high-value domains with an average of 90 domains being checked with every search (3 per search term).

This the quickest and most powerful way to come up with valuable domains.

My method of delegation.

20130917-102416.jpg

The more I talk with people the more I realize delegation is not as understood as I assume. It is with this new understanding that I want to offer up the method of delegation that I have been taught over the years. I am not claiming this is original (hopefully a lot of people use these steps) and it is only one way, but it is mine and it works for me when followed.

Too often delegation is poorly executed, frustrating both the person delegating and the person being delegated to. There should be a benefit for both parties but often one or both parties feel dissatisfied.

Here is one approach to delegation:

1. Define. You need to know exactly what you are going to delegate. Don’t be vague.
2. Plan. Write down how you will present this task. List potential concerns and objections
3. Select. Which of your team has the best skills to deliver the results.
4. Explain. Tell the person why the task is important and why they are right for it.
5. Define success. Be clear about what success looks like, if possible with a measurable target.
6. Set limits. Let them know what they are accountable for and where they can get help. Don’t forget that last part. Oftentimes after delegation has started the person working on it runs into a snag and has no idea where to turn to for some help or guidance. Here is one way you separate delegation from dumping.
7. Invite doubt. Many volunteers start excited when delegated to but then feel that expressing doubt about the project or their ability is a sign of weakness. Encourage them to ask questions and assess the project on their own terms. Also take note of the previous point in number six.
8. Get commitment. Don’t expect immediate agreement. Give them time to think it over. Never rush this stage.
9. Agree. Set milestones and time lines and how you will monitor progress. Get them to suggest as much of this as possible.
10. Recognize and reward. Successful completion of a delegated project or task should mean something. Be clear from the outset how much value you place on it and reflect that in the reward you offer.

There you go, 10 steps I find useful when I want to delegate task and responsibilities

There is a balance in Leadership

gardening

Ever since I have moved to our new house in Kansas City, MO, I have truly been into my yard and gardening. While involved in these two relaxing activities for myself it has given me a lot of time to think and a ton of leadership comparisons to roll around in my brain. Here’s one.

Producing a healthy garden it takes the right amount of water, sunlight, fertilizer, and care. Too much water or too little of any one ingredient could result in damaging your gardening. Just like the best gardeners learn through experience and reflection what their gardens need to grow and develop, seasoned leaders learn what it takes to help people and organizations achieve their potential. I think they learn how much each of the items listed below need to be done.

— Plan and Execute.

Planning is important, but so is execution. Some leaders over plan and under execute. Of course some leaders do just the opposite. They’re busy having meetings, doing key-note presentations but making no improvements in the operation.

— Task and People

Some leaders are too task-focused. It feels everything is all business. People are used for getting a task done. On the other hand some leaders are too focused on pleasing people at the cost of solving problems and getting the work done.

— Results and Process

Some leaders only focus on results. “What’s the bottom line?” Results are important but so is process—how things are done. The how can often times decide how much results you can get at different sizes of growth. The seasoned leader focuses on both what is being accomplished and how it’s being accomplished.

— Coaching and Letting Go

An important part of a leader’s job is to coach people on how to be more effective and efficient. However, there is an important difference between too little and too much coaching. Too much can frustrate initiative. Seasoned leaders know the difference between providing too much (micro-managing) and too little (not developing your team) coaching.

— Work Life and Family Life

Some leaders get totally consumed by their job and neglect their family. To many jobs have been turned into mistresses.

Summary
Seasoned leaders know finding the right balance doesn’t mean moderation in all things. It means using the right mix of various ingredients to help people grow. Great leaders have the wisdom to know what actions are needed to meet success.

Stop giving importance to the unscheduled

appointments

A New Year brings with it to many a new beginning. Often times that new beginning involves new habits. Those new habits often times involve becoming a better task manager and that means scheduling things better.

Why is it that after just a month or so many are back to feeling that their life is on the start again of spinning out of control? Just a few weeks ago they had all their calendars synced, appointments set, reviewed next day agenda the night before, and even bought the latest gadget, app or software to help with scheduling. Now it is all mixed up. Why?

The unscheduled often times trumps the scheduled and planned out. This should not happen and must change!

If you have an important team meeting on Tuesday, how would make sure you get there? You would put it in you calendar, of course. Nothing really magical about that. The fact that an important team meeting is on Tuesday allows the other activities in your day, and even your week, to fit around that appointment.

Unscheduled events will conform to scheduled events. If it was important enough to add to your calendar first stop allowing those unscheduled appointments to take the place of the scheduled. I know for me that if I have added an appointment on my calendar the only items that can challenge the already scheduled would be my family, or my boss. If I keep up enough courage to keep the scheduled appointment those unscheduled appointments really do form around the already scheduled.

Try it, you just may find that it works.
