With my Dad's permission I have shared this story in many Leadership Development Classes over the years.
Organizations tend to promote people to supervisor, management and/or leadership roles because of their success as an indiviual contributor. The transition to supervising, managing or leading people is difficult.
When a small business reaches a certain size the owner or operator often needs to bring in help to continue to deliver their product or service to the growing customer base. Many small businesses lose a momentum during this shift.
Performance as an individual contributor and building a new business require VERY different skills than bringing out the best in a team, department or staff. Through the Kickass Koach Podcast, I will share stories related to this transition. I offer coaching and programs specifically related to succession planning and leadership development. Feel free to contact me to discuss further if you are interested.
You can find the blog post related to this episode at ImpactBank. While you're there join my mailing list. I will be publishing a monthly newsletter for those on my mailing list starting in August.
Thank you to Augusta LaPaix who continues to kick-my-ass as I develop my podcast skill and voice.
