Important Skill For a Founder & Leader – Ability To Hold Yourself Back

Important skill for a founder & leader

Very important skill for a founder & leader is – the ability to hold yourself back!

Which business leader doesn’t admire Elon Musk?

He’s a highly accomplished individual, business leader, and innovator, who pushes the boundaries of human achievement through SpaceX & Tesla.

Now think of what will you advise him to change?

To hold himself back – a wee bit – on his public pronouncements.

Every leader/founder is a creature of passion – chasing their dreams, their ikigai. However, if they can pull themselves back, not too much, just a wee bit, they can be more effective and achieve much more!

Here is how:

– When a subordinate is not meeting the standards you want them to have, bite your tongue

– When a colleague is not able to solve a problem, resist the urge to jump in

– When you feel that your customer is asking for too much & you want to walk-off

– When you want to announce to the world that your business is the greatest thing since sliced bread & your valuation is leaving a lot of money on the table for them
