If you own your company or have become a leader in your company, there will come a point where you will need grow and you will need to hire a manager/leader or you will need to train your replacement manager/leader so you can advance in your position. Many times you are tasked with training your new leader just after you have grown your business or have just become a leader yourself. At this point, many times, small business’s bring family in, or friends. The large business’s hire the up and coming business graduate. One of the biggest mistakes in starting to train your leader is to avoid asking yourself if you are a leader. Look in the mirror and really try and nail down if you are a leader or are a keen business negotiator or perhaps an expert in your field or even just a great salesperson. The issue lies in that none of these traits make you a good leader.
