Be Ready For The Shift In Power Dynamics
Watch out! The power dynamics will completely shift. When you’re a leader in an organization, you are given respect because of your title. People listen to you. You hold the power. When you run your own business, nobody will give you the time of day unless you work hard to earn their attention. You need to sell. The customer holds the power. Be patient and humble and then enjoy the success!Lisa Christen, CEO, Christen Coaching & Consulting
