For anyone who is a regular reader, you will know that I see my job as RedBalloon CEO as delivering on our vision and values whilst keeping everyone aligned to the plan.
My buddy David Cunningham shared this gem with me this morning – and given that I have just written a few posts on the fact that I am currently working on the painted picture document it is really quite fitting.
“As a leader, our role is to be democratic in the planning stage but once it is time to implement our role changes to being autocratic“.
I’ve heard many leaders reiterate this…. all they want from their people is to deliver on the plan. The planning is the time to for people to contribute their ideas. And if people contributed to the plan, designed it, and signed off on it…. then it is our job as a leader to hold them to it.

Answering your #1 Biggest Business Challenge question tip: 

Go beyond just saying "Poor Cashflow" or "Unreliable Team". 

Instead, give Naomi details & specifics on how this is currently your #1 Biggest Business Challenge. 

I.e. "Every month I'm struggling to pay my bills on time because there just isn't consistent cash flow coming into the business. I've tried sticking to budgets in the past & pay myself less to keep some extra funds aside for emergencies, but still every month there seems to be another financial fire to be put out. I don't know what to do about it, so I'm just grinding it out."
