GOOD BUSINESS LEADERS ARE MADE, NOT BORN
I am reminded of a story I heard many years ago about how good small business leaders are born that way. “Walk into the new baby nursery of any hospital and look for signs on the baby cribs which may identify any of the new babies as being proficient in any specific type of work”. The moral of this story is that a good business leader is made not born that way.
I have seen many small business owners achieve the label of “great business leaders” as their companies grew and achieved unrivaled success.
The single biggest characteristic that I found each of these business leaders had in common was the fact that “they knew what they didn’t know”, and they were willing to search for advice and help from others.
It’s not that babies have much more room in their uncluttered heads and, thus, can learn more at a faster pace. The secret is their desire to learn and that desire can be found in any age adult provided that the desire to learn exists.
Several factors can be obstacles to the adult learning process:
Pride: thinking that it is a sign of weakness to show a lack a knowledge or to seek help for your business.
Fear: being afraid that you will make the wrong decision in the person you want to help you.
Trust: not trusting anyone, thinking that everyone is out to take advantage of you.
Following the herd: a seminar that lasts a weekend,costs several thousand dollars, and is attended by thousands of people will most likely result in a loss of several thousand dollars and very little substance.
