Business Growth Forces Owners to Grow
One of the major hurdles every successful business must overcome — if it intends to grow — is foradership to be able to adapt to that growth. A business that has a handful of people has to be run differently than a business of 30 people, or 50 people. If it’s not, growth will be stymied and, potentially, could cause the business to implode.
A small business needs a leader that is directly involved in management. The leaders knows exactly what everyone is doing to move the enterprise forward. But, with more employees, that becomes impossible. A successful leader adapts to an indirect management style, moving from being in the weeds to above the weeds. But that’s not an easy process.
Harvard Business Review recently published a great article that analyzes how that shift needs to be made. To read it (and you should!), click here.
