I’m published by Harvard Business! “Are you the bottleneck in your organization?”

Hi all!  It took a while but (a small sliver) of my Fulbright research on entrepreneurial decision will see the light of day courtesy of Harvard Business Online.  Here’s a snipCelebration baby!pet:

“You may be the reason your company isn’t growing. You are micromanaging — and it’s stifling the organization you are trying to build.  Our research tells us that the very management style that enables a founder to get a company off the ground — a zealous focus on tactical execution — often derails growth down the line. Lost in the heat of battle, many entrepreneurs fail to adapt their management style to the evolving needs of their growing organizations…”

Check out the article over at HBR to see what the 100+ seasoned venture capitalists and serial entrepreneurs we interviewed said about how to balance growth and control.  Or check it out because you want to know what the heck I was doing in Italy for nearly a year!  Either way, let me know what you think and thanks for clicking!

Be well!

PS.  If anyone is interested in seeing the rest of my research, I would be happy to send it to them!

  1. I would venture to say that this analysis is true not only of entrepreneurs, but even those that have risen the corporate ladder at the helm of various sub-businesses within a company. I often felt that management training would be really beneficial at the middle level, vs. just the top, and mostly in lessons on how to let go of your baby. Congratulations on the publication!

  2. Currently doing research on Servant Leadership, the tenets ring true to what you are saying here!
