Entrepreneurs often get caught up in the day to day leadership of developing their businesses. This is admirable in the creation stage of a new business, however at some point doing all aspects of the business solely by the entrepreneur takes its toll.
When they do hire managers and employees, their first need is to simply get stuff done. It's more like putting out fires for a while until systems are put into place to get things running smoothly and to allow the business to progress toward profitability.
5 Tips on hiring (or outsourcing) your team:
Most importantly, the higher you go the more you must serve.
In order to grow your organization, you must first be a servant to those you lead. The concept is called servant leadership. This doesn't mean you cannot direct your employees, it simply means that to support their work, and thereby move your business forward, you develop an attitude of serving. The outdated hierarchical method of leadership leads to uninspired workers, high turnover and no real loyalty to their jobs or to you.
What is the 1 question to ask if you want to be an exceptional leader? It is: What gift am I giving each and every day to those I lead?
Today's thought can be summed up in this quote:
"The measure of a leader is not the number of people who serve him but the number of people he serves."John C. Maxwell
