The qualities of leadership in entrepreneurship don’t come automatically. If you want to become a successful entrepreneur and a great leader, you must understand the principles that will help you in leading your team to victory.
Use strategic delegation
Delegation is a powerful tool to have in your arsenal. If you know how to delegate well, you increase the odds of your team succeeding. However, you must remember that delegation is not micromanaging. You should leave the managing to the managers, your time is too valuable to do that.
Your goal as a leader is to build an empire, so use delegation to free up your time and you can focus on the big picture. It’s important to remind yourself that while you delegate, you shouldn’t be absent and completely out of the picture. Keep a close eye on the operations of your team while you work on the high-level strategies.
Delegate earnestly but never be absent
Perseverance isn’t enough in your quest to become a successful entrepreneur, you need tenacity. The former requires you to keep standing up after each defeat, the latter enables you to think of creative solutions to achieve the results that you desire, no matter the struggles.
When you’re planning your strategies, you must consider every variable and be obsessed over the details that determine your success or failure. Once you’ve decided on your game plan, you must have absolute self-belief in your execution.
There will be naysayers that doubt your plan, but you must be tenacious in the face of all those who are “concerned” about you. Most of the time, these people secretly pray for your defeat. They’re in a comfort zone and they’re envious of risk takers, because they never had the guts to leave their golden handcuffs.
Your self-belief must be so strong that you can turn the impossible into the possible. Steve Jobs and Alexander the Great never stopped just because someone told them that their plans might not work.
“Like Odysseus, you will stop your ears with wax or bind yourself to the mast.”
