What limits us from awakening to our inner zentrepreneur? And how do we go about unleashing this extraordinary power and grace? In this article I will answer these questions.

In my work, I frequently engage in a broad-based leadership development program to prepare top talent for advancement. That was the case when I recently worked with a large construction company to groom Mike, one of the presidents, and Joe, the lead risk officer, for advancement.

During the 360 peer interviews I asked Mike how Joe could improve in general and how he could specifically help Mike with his growth objectives. Without hesitation, Mike answered, “I need for Joe to take me right to the edge of the cliff without letting me fall over. Right now he’s serving as the business-prevention arm of the business.”

For most small and medium-sized business owners and chief executives, the international question looms large, in business plans, strategy sessions, and in late-night calls with anxious investors.  For some, the decision has already been made: products are now shipping overseas, and services have taken flight. New sales figures and lead volume data have either validated the decision to go global, or illustrated the need to work harder.  In some cases, the metrics may simply have confirmed fears that the time for new frontiers was not yet ripe.

No matter what the size of the business, employees are critical to an organization’s success.  This is especially true when a business wants to grow or expand. Employees help develop new products and services. Employees manufacture the goods. They provide the service. Employees can help delight a customer or destroy a relationship. So when it is time to hire, a business owner needs to be thoughtful about the right person for their organization.

Ten years ago, I took two big risks: I founded my first digital media startup company and became a volunteer firefighter. It was a difficult decision at the time. At the same time I was launching my first company, I was making a commitment to one of the most highly regarded volunteer firefighting organizations in the country. I found that becoming a firefighter helped me become a more effective CEO and disruptive entrepreneur.
