Be a Leader, Not a Hero - by Ravi Patel

                             

Entrepreneurs sometimes think of themselves as heroes trying to hit a home run or create miracles.

 

Heroes are created infrequently and for a short time. While you might feel that you have to rescue your company from all situations, it is not always possible and more importantly not the right thing to do.

 

Successful companies need long-term leadership that builds the organization and the employee team to solve problems and exploit opportunities in the absence of the leader. Dependence on a hero can only work in the short term or in a few instances.

 

While Entrepreneurs might think of themselves as super-heroes for starting the company and making it grow though its infancy, strong business leadership is necessary to nurture it for long-term growth and success.

 

Be a Leader NOT a Hero!
