Leading others, not doing it all yourself!

Being a leader means leading others in a shared vision. It does not mean that you have to be an expert at everything.  Over the course of my career, I teased with employees when I didn’t know the answer right off the top that I knew how to do things they didn’t!  All kidding aside, it was true.

Launching a small business has more moving parts than I contemplated because I had always worked for someone.  One challenge, hurdle, obstacle, whatever you would like to call it, was deciding how to take money.  If I hold a workshop for the public around the DISC Behavioral Profile or the Change Style Indicator Assessment, both dive into personal behaviors and how to understand yourself and others,  people need to sign up and pay in advance so that I can provide the assessments in advance.

I know that I get caught up in the research when I don’t know about the topic.  If I know about it, I make quick decisions and move on.  I labored over which printer to purchase because I didn’t know about printers!  Finally, I bought one because a trusted friend praised that brand.  As I struggled on which company to use to take on line payments, a monthly fee or a higher percentage, but no monthly fee, I finally decided to see what another trainer used and followed them.  Boom, decision made.

If you are struggling with a decision, find someone you trust and go with what they are doing!

The DISC Behavioral Assessment and Workshop can help you and your organization work together more effectively.  You will recognize the person to leverage to help you make the best decision.  Look for an upcoming invitation to my DISC Workshop!

  1. That is really so true, Jennifer. Sometimes it’s best to follow the clear trail others have blazed. As a new SB owner you get to choose which way to go, and still lead. I trust your abilities to find sound, collaborative solutions. Thanks!
