Business Resource: 10 Big Mistakes Successful Leaders Make Article

YOUR Business Rescue Coach asks:
Curious why great leaders implode?

Did you ever wonder what really happens to all those successful leaders we hear about… and then, don’t? Well, this isn’t a definitive list, but it sure does help us gain some insight as to 10 things that commonly happen.

More importantly this should be a “Don’t let this happen to you when you make it big!” article.  The point titled “Surrounded…” is the one that seems the most absurd to me, but the one failure that I hear of happening alot to “the little guy” is the  “If you…”

  1. I love this paragraph the best: “If you know a little about human psychology, that shouldn’t surprise you. You’ve got to really know yourself, possess unusual self-confidence, and be pretty well grounded in reality to withstand the ego-inflating onslaught of winning big in business.” Winning big in business — I really don’t think of ‘winning big’ because I don’t see business as that type of game; I see it more a method to serve others, not win big–like business is a lottery or gamble. I think this is old school thinking that is slowly (think glacier here) changing. Interesting bullet points though and lots to think about.

    1. I completely agree with you Blake about business should be more focused on Serving Others. I guess, I could add: and when you do, you win big 🙂 Ha-ha-ha, how do you like that for melding the old and new paradigm of doing business? Am I a clever little bugger or what? Actually, I know it is a big win because you, as a service provider, are serving and some one, as a customer, is receiving the care/service they are seeking. Imagine, if you could for a moment, what the business sector would look like if everyone understood this! Thanks for your consistent interaction 🙂

  2. Hi,
    Thank you for a relevant article. But I would like to object to your position regarding the fear. I don’t think that a real leader has a need in fear. Fear spoils it all, fear makes you weak and stops you from making right decisions. A leader should keep prudence, but not the fear, those are different things, how do you think?

    Richard Simms,

    1. Richard, thanks for weighing in on the article. I completely agree with you that fear impedes a leaders performance and if it continues it renders them ineffective. Indeed prudence and fear are quite different. Unfortunately discernment and common sense aren’t so common these days. All people, especially leaders, need to learn how to leave their personal agendas behind and focus on what is best for the organization. And yes, that includes the people associated with the organization.
