A few words of wisdom from someone successful…

Here are some words of wisdom from Gordon Segal, founder of Crate & Barrel.

He points out one of the most difficult aspects of growing a business: That hiring that first employee will completely change the scope of what you do.  In order to cope with that, you need to set the foundation and go into business for the right reasons, have a vision of what you want the business to become, be flexible and adaptable, and lastly give up control of the small details that seem very important for the sake of success with your long-term plan.

Keep your eyes on www.DistinctiveCoaching.com/events.html for our upcoming Leadership Workshop that will delve into this and other related topics.
