As a new owner, you get to develop strategies, make decisions, and lead the company onward to achieve great things.
But after a short time, one thing becomes all too apparent.
It’s lonely at the top.
There’s no one to strategize with, decisions are tough, often needing to be made with insufficient information, and execution is a challenge, compounded by resistance to change and varying degrees of engagement.
If you aren’t effective as a leader, profitability will suffer, cash flow will suffer, and buyout payments will be missed. And if that weren’t enough, we all have blind spots. These blind spots can cause us to misdiagnose problems, overlook solutions, and miss opportunities.
