The Secret of Entrepreneurial Leadership

controlEntrepreneurs like to be in control. Unfortunately, as we all learn one way or another, you can’t control everything.

One thing you can’t control is your people. The more you try to control them, the more they resist. The more they resist, the more they resent you. So stop trying to control them.

Another thing you can’t do is motivate your people. People do things for their own reasons, not yours.

So the secret of entrepreneurial leadership isn’t in motivating them. It’s in discovering what motivates each of them individually and then helping them see how it fits with your vision for your business.

Once they see that, you’ll have a motivated employee that you don’t need to control!
