    This Simple Word Could Be a Game-Changer for Your Business

  • By Don Magruder

    As a business owner, chairman of the board, CEO, district vice president, or store manager, can an employee tell you "no" without getting fired? Does anyone have the courage to tell you that two-letter word?

    The inability of a boss to allow free speech is one of the principal reasons why he or she fails. No one is right all the time, and having a muse that can tell you "no" will improve your effectiveness as a leader. Although this is a business culture issue, it really reflects the DNA of a leader. The thin-skinned, arrogant tone of many corporate leaders demonstrates a lack of humility. That is the chief reason why I bet there are more company "yes people" now than at any other time in history.

    Do What You Do Best and Delegate the Rest

  • Business owners and managers alike are busier than ever these days. As their businesses grow and become more complex, they find that they don’t have the time to be all things to all people, as much as they would like to. In the early stages of a business, the owner or manager might service the customers, do the buying, collect on past due accounts and supervise just about everyone on staff. That model of management and operations is just not sustainable, even for the most talented of businesspeople.

    At each stage of business growth, managers must learn to discipline themselves to delegate more and more activities, and personally perform fewer and fewer job functions to give them time to think and plan. This is not easy. After all, the business is their baby.
