8:00 am – 9:30 am
Join us for our monthly networking event, Business @ Breakfast. Offered once a month, it’s a great way to connect with other community leaders and learn about issues that matter to business.
In March, Colin Harding, President, and Chief Consultant at Jaeger Consulting Group, will be joining us to discuss Decentralized Leadership.
“One of the earliest and most powerful traps that small businesses, and small business owners in particular, find themselves stuck in is a Leadership Bottleneck. A situation in which all roads, all channels, all communication and most significantly all decision-making point back to one person, or a few key people. In the early days of a business, this can seem like a strength. After all, it creates a singular vision which is consistently and quickly actioned, daily. In fact, in the early days of a business, it often is a strength.
But most of us start a business because we have a vision that is bigger than us. And a business that operates solely on the tactical direction of one person is also limited by the capacity of that one person.
Decentralized Leadership is the remedy to the Leadership Bottleneck – a systematic approach to raising the capacity of a small business so that it can grow without losing it’s focused vison.”
