Consider, that leading a business is like playing a game. You might lead a family business, you might lead a sales team, you might be the owner/operator, key principal or the good old company man that is the bedrock of the business supporting the owner for the last 20 years, but you're actually a player in the complex game of business.
It is a complicated game with a gameboard you cannot see. You were never formally trained on how to play. We teach our children trigonometry in school instead of negotiation, contract fulfillment and financial forecasting. The stakes are high and it is really really hard. There are space invaders looking to sink your battleship. 90% of game players run out of lives without reaching the end. Most of you play it alone, even if you have a business partner and supportive friends and family.
But the game is also designed to be rewarding. We find Easter Eggs and extra lives along the way. We are dealt trump cards that help us become very successful. We travel the gameboard path with “friendlies” who share game secrets and help us unlock secret paths.
