Business Leader

karen-greatsimple-01

Very often, I run into leaders and aspiring entrepreneurs that make the mistake of going to great lengths to cover up their weaknesses instead of addressing them openly so an effective solution can be found. Or worse, they aren’t aware of what their weaknesses are at all, and instead play entirely to their strengths.

Every effective leader has to learn how to make sound decisions, quickly. Out of fear of making the wrong decision, they end up postponing taking action–which almost always causes a larger problem. Rest assured; I’m not one of those.

What people are saying

“There is a difference between being a leader and being a boss. Both are based on authority. A boss demands blind obedience; a leader earns his authority through understanding and trust. Karen has that trust.”

Say hello. Let’s work together.

You’re always welcome to give me a buzz regarding a co-op, a meeting or if you need my help. I act as an interim for several companies, so do get in touch.
