Growth Think Tank

Every CEO or leader has spent some time in what I call firefighter mode. It is that type of leadership where you are the one that has to make decisions and put out fires. You want to be a servant to your people and remove challenges. You think it is the best use of your time. Well, that is until you stop and think about it. For me, it took hiring a leadership coach as I was running a $1m company and all I had before the coach was fires to put out. Becoming a leader that is effective and respected means you have to stop being a firefighter. Becoming a leader is intentional. In this short video, I share my story of being a firefighter and how I broke the pattern to become a leader.
