Episode 3: Are you the right person to lead your organisation?
When we start our business, we’re everything. We’re the CEO, the Director, the CFO, the accountant, the admin, the HR, the despatch, you name it. As our businesses grow and evolve, we gradually begin to offload those tasks to others so that we can focus more on doing what we’re good at less of what we’re not. Leadership, like most things is a skill that can be developed, however there are very often individuals that are stronger than others. This might be because of experience, this might be because of natural ability, however regardless of who they are, the reality of the situation is…IT MIGHT NOT BE YOU! It’s nothing to take offence at, it’s more of a paradigm that you need to come to grips with. Have a look at some of the most successful companies on the planet and you’ll see that the Director/Founder has employed a CEO to lead the organisation, so that he, or she can focus on doing what they’re better at. In this episode, Peter and I dive further into that reality. ____________________
