We all have days when we feel this way, but are you finding this to be a constant struggle? Overcome the leadership crisis.Let us help you!
We all have days when we feel this way, but are you finding this to be a constant struggle? As the founder and CEO, are you working two shifts? During the day you are managing the people, motivating the team, and keeping the operation running. At night, you are writing new marketing material, trying to close deals, and organizing your business. If so, then of course it feels out of control.The ifridge way: We call this the leadership crisis, and we know how to solve it. This is when you need to take a step back to take control of your business. First you need to tell your story, make sure that your entire team understands it, and then get feedback on what they think about it. Secondly, be sure to trust your people. You have to be confident that the people you hire are competent enough to do their job, so give them a chance to do things their way and don’t be hard on them when they make mistakes. As a leader you need to find the balance between being supportive and stepping back.When we meet with entrepreneurs, there is often something preventing them from taking the next step in expanding their business. During our talks, we hear these themes most often, and we wanted to give you some early tips to get started overcoming those obstacles.Want to learn more? Drop us a line, we’d love to help you build a great company.
For us, it's all about building great companies. We are motivated by groundbreaking ideas and passionate people who have the courage to turn their vision into reality.
As a global team of entrepreneurs, we draw from our extensive experience in turning brilliant ideas into revenue in a wide range of disciplines. We have been in your position of building or running a business many times, which has led to a deep rooted passion for blending the strategic and operational aspects of building a company. We view ourselves as team members to the entrepreneurs we serve.
Your courage to start a company earns our respect, and we enjoy getting to know you. We always work directly with you, and to us, the structure of your business is less important than your vision and the people on your team. Ideally, you have had some initial success and want your organization to take the next step. We typically work with companies smaller than 100 people and where the founder is still involved.
Building and growing a business is one of the most exciting times in your life. We have done it, and we know that each step in the growth process comes with great new opportunities as well as a few challenges. Our engagement with you could range from being your mentor all the way to serving as your right hand person covering a full set of services from go-to-market, to innovation, to operations, all with strategy at the core.
We believe great ideas should be supported. If your vision is strong but the time isn’t right, we’ll buy you coffee and discuss your dream. Once the time is right, we’re sure you’ll remember that coffee. Depending on the relationship, we can be flexible on compensation, which can range from all cash to all equity, or somewhere in between. In the end, we’re entrepreneurs too, and want to see you succeed.
