The biggest struggle I had as an entrepreneur was to find the balance between being a leader and being a follower. As a leader, you have to be able to make decisions based on what's best for your company, even if those decisions go against what other people want.
That can be difficult when you have a team of people who are looking up to you—it can feel like they're judging your every decision, and that can be stressful. But it's important to remember that in order for your company to succeed, those people need to trust in your judgment. For me, the best way of achieving this is by listening carefully and asking questions instead of making assumptions.
I've found that when I ask questions like: "What do you think?" or "What would happen if we tried this?"—instead of saying something like: "You're supposed to do X," or "I want Y"—it makes it easier for my team members to understand why something needs to be done. This also helps them see how much thought has gone into their work so far, which makes them feel more invested in the outcome.
