Many in business start out thinking that success in business is all about taking the reins, plowing through, and making things happen. And this is true to a point, and that point comes very quickly.
It is then that a business owner learns that there is what John Maxwell calls “The Law of the Lid.” There is only so much time, energy, and skill available to one person. And so, to raise the lid, the business owner must grow beyond their comfort zone and into a new role – that of a manager.
As the organization grows, the business owner will need to make another shift, and that is to the role of leader. While accustomed to being the hands-on doer in the business, this new role as leader often comes with a bit of a learning curve. In this role, it is no longer about doing but about equipping and leading a team of people who will carry out the mission.
And that is a whole different ball game.
In this podcast, John Maxwell talks about “The Maxwell Strategy for Equipping People.” Take some time to listen and learn the 5 Ms for equipping people. It is profound guidance wrapped in an easy-to-remember package.
