Guess what? We’re back with another episode on “Operation Agency Freedom,” and in today’s episode of I go into detail about a powerful strategy of decision-making that you should be implementing within your agency. The focus is clear: making decisions based on identifying the team member with the highest probability of holding the key to the right answer. Let me tell you how Ray Dalio’s book, “Principles,” has inspired me and the transformative impact this approach can have on your agency’s success.

This episode is a bit of a deep dive into a topic that’s been taking up a lot of space in my mind lately: decision-making in an agency is all about making decisions based on figuring out who on the team is most likely to have the right answers.
