You are not alone
Being a leader is tough. And isolating. It is easy to feel like you are a failure when things aren’t going the way you want. But that is leadership. As the saying goes “It is lonely at the top”. You are a business owner. Stop and give yourself a big pat on the back JUST for taking that leap. As your business grows, your needs change and you need better tools to move everyone forward on the same page.
Your business culture is the keystone of a successful enterprise. There are different challenges with tiny teams then there are with big businesses. How can you create a culture that supports engagement, innovation and motivation?
Who do you turn to when it feels like things are going sideways? How do you come up with a fast, effective plan for fixing problems before they get bigger? And what systems can be put in place to prevent similar future problems? Nothing makes a business owner feel more alone than problems in the business- let’s talk about it.
There is a big difference between being a business owner and being a manager. The saying “Business would be great if it weren’t for all the clients and employees!” The fact is, we need to learn to manage effectively. It is a skill set that most entrepreneurs haven’t mastered. We can work on it!
