I want to give you 1, very simple way to make your business more valuable:
Every business is more valuable to the degree that it does not depend on its top leader. -Verne Harnish, Scaling Up
I don't think I would have believed this quote 5 years ago. I behaved the opposite. I had to have all the answers. I had to solve all the problems. I had to make all the decisions.
But all that does is hold the people back limit the company value.
Instead, I should have worked really really hard to enable others do the work.
Don't be like me 5 years ago. Instead, focus on these 3 "stops" and 3 "let others":
3 things to stop doing, 3 things to let other do:
Stop knowing everything, let other be the experts
Stop fixing everything, let others solve problems themselves
Stop making all the decisions, lets others make decisions and mistakes
Remember, I said simple... not easy.
