Many business owners often ask me “What does it take to create an amazing business full of raving fans?”. The answer is simple, Leadership. Businesses that thrive all have great leaders at the top of their companies. These leaders have others following them because of 3 things- the vision that they have for the company, the ability to inspire others to lead in the company, and the impact that they make on those around them.
Anyone can start a business, but a great leader understands that they must surround themselves with others who bring their strengths to support the business owner's weaknesses. They insure that those who work for them are superior at what they do, and that systems are in place to hold them accountable for their performance and deliverables.
Great leaders inspire and grow other leaders in the organization. They encourage creativity and embrace their team to take action to develop strategies to grow the business.
Great leaders are innovators. They care about others, and the growth of others. Their focus is not on competition, but on always making a difference.
