The Bottleneck Is at the Top of the Bottle

The qualities that you have as an entrepreneurial leader that helped to grow the business are the same ones that keep you from going to the next level.

The typical qualities used in growing a business are:

  • Work your hardest
  • Do it yourself (you’re the best at everything)
  • Keep your finger on all levers that control the business

The qualities needed to get to the next level are:

  • Inspire others so that they get results by giving it their all
  • Coach, plan and cast vision
  • Embody, live out and trumpet the core values of your organization

The reason you don’t grow is because of you – the bottle neck is always at the top of the bottle.
