How a Virtual COO Manages Your Team

Watch today's video, "How a Virtual COO manages your team. " 

In this video, you'll discover how you can efficiently and confidently DELEGATE the role of managing your team to your Virtual COO.

What is a Virtual COO?

A Virtual COO is a seasoned business and operations professional who specializes in helping business owners grow and scale their online companies.

For the Virtual COO, executing the founder and CEO's business plan is the primary focus.

In a nutshell, the COO supports the CEO's role of focusing on growth by taking over the nuts and bolts of running the company. As a result, the CEO is effectively released from her daily responsibilities to this second-in-command role.

What Does a Virtual COO Do?

If you do a Google search, you may find a variety of duties for a Virtual COO. The primary responsibilities of this second-in-command role liberate the CEO by taking daily management off her plate.  

As the second-in-command, the Virtual COO takes on key management tasks and areas of the business. As a result, the CEO will have the time to focus on growth that will propel the company forward.  

Here at Violette Business Services, we work with women business owners who are typically Coaches, Consultants, Trainers, Educators, and Purpose-driven Service Providers.

A Virtual COO is commonly known as s Fractional COO, Online COO, and of course Chief Operations Officers in an online company.  

A primary focus of the Virtual COO is to liberate the founder from managing operations, projects, marketing, and the team.

Once the CEO partners with a second-in-command, she is ready to begin growing. By handling daily management, the COO frees the CEO to scale to higher levels of profit, reach, and impact. 

It's time for a Virtual COO when carrying all the responsibilities of a growing business becomes too much.

While the company operates in the online space and is not large enough yet to hire full time employees, the Virtual COO is a welcome addition to the business owner's growing company.

How Does a Virtual COO Manage My Team?

As you know, the company's team resources are a key area of growing and scaling your company.

Without others to execute the never-ending tasks and projects that need to be worked every day to accomplish company goals, you'll quickly burn out trying to do everything yourself.

To grow and thrive, every company needs people (team) who have the time and skills the business owner doesn't have to support the growth of the company.

Here's the thing...

The people aspect of running a business is time-consuming. Most business owners find the charge of finding, hiring, training and daily oversight and management of their team members challenging and overwhelming to say the least.

So, does this sound like you?

Your team members are good people. As a matter of fact, they want to help you.

But, they don't know EXACTLY what to do without your input and direction.

So they wait around for you to tell them what to do.

 If you're like most business owners, no doubt you've said. "It's faster to do it myself."

So now you're spending time on tasks...

  • that are not getting you closer to your growth goals
  • and you're a bottleneck for stuff getting done
  • and you're spending money for team members to wait on you (that is if they're still available when you come up for air).

Finally, when the business has grown to where your time is shrinking and business growth is stuck...

It's time to hire so you as the CEO can step out of the day-to-day to focus on big picture growth and moving the company into the future.  

When you're positioned in your company as the CEO and are emancipated from the role of managing your team - you'll begin to see profit flowing back into the business.
