Entrepreneurial Leadership: Self-Growth, Professional Growth and Corporate Growth | BUSINESS CAPITAL TRENDS

You ask me why I chose to become the Chairman and CEO of an entrepreneurial enterprise -- specifically The National Networker Companies/ TNNWC Group, LLC. It might not be what you were thinking.

Entrepreneurial Leadership: Self-Growth, Professional Growth and Corporate Growth.

Being an effective and successful entrepreneurial leader is one of the most difficult challenges any individual can confront.

It involves self-growth (painful introspection, being aware of your own gifts and shortcomings, re-programming yourself with a future vision of your "best self" firmly set in your every thought, changing habits, learning to focus, learning to listen, exercising your memory and cognitive facilities and exercising constant self-assessment and self-control); professional growth ( learning how to 'read others,' learning how to communicate to different types of individuals in different sets of circumstances, developing mastery in several fields, learning how to lead as a moderator and a commander, but without being a dictator and alienating all of those whose cooperation you will ultimately need); and company growth -- using all of the skills developed in your self-growth and professional growth to become an organizational engineer, and to assess each Human Asset on your team in terms of his or her greatest strengths, highest and best application within the organization, and to attend to the optimal positioning of all of these individuals like the players in an orchestra.

Every day is opening night for you.

And there you stand, with your baton raised as soon as the curtains have gone up. It will be a live performance - and no matter what surprises lay in store each night of your "command in concert" series, you must somehow create beautiful harmony. You must keep the objective in sight, advance in meaningful, measurable increments, and must somehow maintain adaptive skills and flexibility in case any of the roads along the clearest path to your organizational vision are washed out or closed off. The challenge of entrepreneurial leadership will either make you into a success, or exhaust you and leave you deflated. It is all dependent upon your attitude, your sheer tenacity (the game's never over until you decide that it is) and your belief in yourself and your mission.

I joined TNNWC Group because I believed in the mission, and in my ability to carry it forward. What I never realized was just how difficult it would be to get from idea to actualization of objective.

Within these past three years, I have experienced more personal growth, professional growth and organizational growth than ever in my earlier careers as a director, officer or advisor to companies.

The ultimate challenge is to be able to clone improved versions of yourself by training those who follow you to become leaders themselves. Your level of success in that will determine the longevity of your enterprise and legacy to all of those whom you've mentored, instructed, trained and cared for.

While I feel the crush of the responsibilities today (allocations of limited resources, coordinating conflicting agendas, teaching and inspiring people, keeping enthusiasm high even through discipline born of necessity), I live with hopes of feeling the exhilaration of magnificent accomplishment when my team has ascended past the timber line in a group victory. And victory, I have learned, is the greatest gift to share.

To your success,

Douglas Castle
