Listen to the Episode Below:
If you’ve ever seen a Star Wars film (pick one, any one), you can’t miss the theme. The same skills and talents can be used for good or for evil. The light side has a dark side. You choose.
Same thing applies to business owners. The “mad skills” that brought you to your current levels of success can stall your business when the balance tips. So a rebel—who challenged barriers—becomes an saboteur, who plays small. Or a hero—who fixed a broken sales pipeline—becomes a bystander, when leading a team.
In this episode, Inc. Magazine award-winning executive coach Lolly Daskal, shows business owners how to recognize the leadership gaps in who you are so you stop hiding—and let your business grow, too.
