Hope you are kicking butt this week so far in your business. I wanted to share a little insight on something that comes up around the office here quite often. That is the concept of being a leader. If you are self-employed and want to have any chance of thriving, then you have to be a leader. That being said, you really need to hire and work with leaders as well.
You shouldn’t be a boss. You shouldn’t have “workers”. You need leaders.
Drive employees, inspire fear, blame, takes credit, commands, etc…
Coach, use goodwill, fixes breakdowns, gives credit, etc…
I am always looking to hire leaders. They don’t blame. When there are problems, they fix them without whining and without waiting for a pat on the back. The inspire others to not only follow but become leaders themselves.
I can tell you from personal experience that if you lack these leaders in your business, you will feel alone. You will feel like everyone else is stupid. You will want to give up. You will become more and more frustrated by the day.
You need leaders to surround yourself with and be among. You need support and team players. I am not sure if a leader can be created or must be hired, but you need to be working to find or create them. IT is vital to your success.
Best wishes for a great work week!
