The Dream Manager: An A-Player’s Story of Aligning Her Vision with the Company’s Vision

Welcome to today’s episode! Last week, we covered how your organization’s future and your team members’ potential are intertwined. You also learned why Tap the Potential’s Dream Manager Program is the solution to the monumental problem of employee disengagement. Today you’ll learn the vital importance of putting your personal strategic plan in place, how identifying your dreams supports your business vision, and how to energize your A-players and keep them engaged. Join us to learn more!

Leading the charge for this topic is Melissa Kay, the Lead Strategist and “Chief Dream Officer” at Tap the Potential. Joining her is Kaitlyn Beaver, Sales and Marketing Team Lead at Tap the Potential. Kaitlyn shares her experience with the Dream Manager Program and how having a personal strategic plan supports her role as an A-player on our amazing team.

Profit by Design is a Tap the Potential Production.

Show Highlights:

  • What life was like for Kaitlyn in the early days of no personal strategic plan or professional vision, living in the survival trap and overwhelmed by burnout
  • How we do things differently at Tap the Potential by focusing on personal and professional visions with each team member
  • How using the Wheel of Life Exercise to break the ice and start talking about dreams has changed everything for Kaitlyn in her career and her life
  • Why people tend to stop dreaming, take a scarcity mindset, and allow limiting beliefs to rule
  • How a dream-storming session in the Dream Manager Program opened the door to limitless opportunities for Kaitlyn
  • Why having a business plan without a personal strategic plan is like “throwing spaghetti at the wall”
  • How the Dream Manager Program set Kaitlyn up to succeed by helping her create her personal and professional vision within the A-Player Development Tracker
  • How your team can benefit, like Kaitlyn, from Tap the Potential’s Dream Manager Program

About The Author

Dr. Sabrina Starling, The Business Psychologist and international best-selling author of the How to Hire the Best series and The 4 Week Vacation™, is the founder of Tap the Potential and host of the Profit by Design podcast. At Tap the Potential, we work to free business owners from the constant demands of a growing business.

We believe work supports life, not the other way around. Clients in our Better Business, Better Life coaching program have more time for what matters most and more money in their bank account than they’ve ever had. Next, we send them off on a 4 Week Vacation™ to celebrate their hard-earned journey to take their life back!

Dr. Sabrina and her team at Tap the Potential are on a mission to change the story of entrepreneurship from one of long hours, grinding it out, to one of sustainably profitable businesses that support and enhance life. The Tap the Potential Solution™ and our Tap the Potential Family of Business Owners are disrupting small business as usual. We are on our way to making the Tap the Potential Solution™ the mainstream model for growing business.

By 2023, 150 Tap the Potential clients will have taken 4 Week Vacations. These are the trailblazers, role modeling what’s possible for entrepreneurs. In many entrepreneurial circles, it is becoming more and more common for one entrepreneur to ask another, “Have you taken a 4 Week Vacation™?” (as opposed to asking “How many employees do you have?” or “What is your annual revenue?”). Taking a fully unplugged 4 Week Vacation is rapidly becoming the recognized symbol of entrepreneurial success.

Never one to accept the status quo or back down from a challenge, Dr. Sabrina’s How to Hire the Best series grew from her desire to solve the toughest hiring challenges interfering with her clients’ growth and profitability. What sprang from her experience working with entrepreneurs in rural areas catapulted her into becoming the world’s leading expert in attracting top talent in small businesses—no matter what hiring challenges those businesses are facing—and earned Tap the Potential’s reputation as the go-to resource for entrepreneurs committed to creating Great Places to Work with thriving coaching cultures and highly engaged team members working from strengths.

As The Business Psychologist, and with her years of driving profit in small businesses, Dr. Sabrina knows what it takes to find, keep, and motivate exceptional performance out of your biggest investment—team members.
