“Even if I could work every day, 24 hours a day for months and I’d never catch up”
“If I could only clone myself – it would be so much better.”
“No one else can do what I do.”
You find yourself missing deadlines, or worse, unable to respond to new customers and opportunities are slipping through your fingers. If only sleep were optional! From the outside, everything seems to be going well, but you feel like you’re struggling as a leader and need more help. But sleep is NOT optional and just working more hours won’t move your company to the next level.
Tandem Leadership illustrates these problems and how to solve them through the fictional character of Marcus Kinsey, a newly minted entrepreneur of a fast growing company. Like many entrepreneurs, Marcus sees an opportunity and creates his own company to seize upon that opportunity. But not too far into his journey he realizes his vision and hard work alone will not make his company a success nor give him the life he sought as an owner. Marcus learns about the Tandem Leadership process and begins to carefully craft the business and personal life he had always hoped to achieve.
