Scale Your Business with the Power of "Let Go"
Ask yourself this question; Does everything that I do in my business truly add value? Do I critically change the outcome of the things that I do day-to-day? For many leaders, entrepreneurs and CEO’s, the answer to these questions is more often than not a resounding YES…only to discover that it's NO. The "I'm the only one who can do it" mentality often has the side effects of 80 hour work weeks, stunted growth, micromanaging, high turnover and an overall paralyzing culture. Convincing leaders to learn the essential process of "letting go," to empower and delegate those who work with you to truly be able to scale their business and focus on rapid, sustained growth has become a passion of mine. During this session, you’ll find out if you’re the bottleneck in the growth of your business and your people. You’ll then walk away with eight ways to begin letting go and watching your company and your people grow to levels you never imagined.
