Thinking Fast as an Entrepreneur Entrepreneurial leaders are open-minded, energetic, and always questioning. They ask: How can we do it better? Where should we go from here?

The Single Wringable Neck

Chances are you won’t have to wring that neck either, since that person will know it is his responsibility to ensure the action is completed on time and well.

When its their neck on the line, people tend to take the right and necessary actions.

Over functioning and Under functioning

Over-Functioning and Under-Functioning

A business partnership is a system. Sometimes that system resembles a couple or family system. And like any couple or family, there may be one over-functioning and one under-functioning person in the partnership.

Flatten a hierarchy

How to Flatten a Hierarchy

You need a hierarchy to get things done efficiently. But hierarchies don’t always produce optimal solutions to complex and challenging problems.
