Not Being a Hero

Entrepreneurs might think of themselves as heroes trying to hit a home run or create miracles. Is this helpful?

Heroes are generally created infrequently and for a very 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. A crisis manager in one situation is not always a great leader.

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 rather than a hero!
