Beyond the Pitch
Growing Pains: How To Effectively Grow As a Leader Along With Your Growing Company (Innovate New Albany’s TIGER Talk series)
Part of our TIGER Talks series:
The best thing that can happen to your company is for it to become successful; ironically success can also be a giant factor in what brings it down. When starting your company, it might just be yourself, a partner, and a few choice employees. As the company grows, you add more employees and what worked when you were 3 employees does not work with 30 or 300. This talk will focus on helping leaders of small businesses understand the challenges of being a leader of a company in transition and providing coaching and advice on how to meet those challenges.
