Leadership is arguably one of the most evergreen, vital skills that we can possess. Particularly when it comes to running a business; you can have all the capital in the world, a plethora of hardworking partners, and the perfect location for your store.
But without the right mentality and skillset to steer the ship, even seasoned entrepreneurs can run afoul of unforeseen challenges and roadblocks. Sometimes, being a great leader means understanding the wants and needs of your network, and being able to deliver on those when required.
Other times, it can mean training those within your team to become leaders themselves; empowering individuals to eventually take over the legacy that you’ve built with a brand.
