This week the main problem that me and my team faced was our direction and my own direction. for the last 3 weeks we had held the same SHV, which was disappointing and disheartening, as we felt we were doing the best we could. The week prior our direction and goal was to help the team that we had purchased, but unfortunately through no fault of their own they did not achieve what we thought they might, which left us as a group confused and slightly more lost, as we had almost focused more on our subsidiary team than ourselves
The articulation of this problem is that we had no forward momentum, and as a CEO it made me feel lost, and lacking the confidence that I had had in the earlier stages. After a meeting with peter I realised that it was not solely on me to make the larger decisions. I knew this already, but whether it was my own ego or a sense of responsibility i still tried to be the main decision maker. this week has once again made me realise how grateful I should be at the team that I have, who are confident and effective in their decisions.
The action that i took this week and try to take each week is stepping back, and taking a wider look at the game. Each person works their roles well and I no longer feel like questioning their decisions, even if marketing may be a big spender. This action is quite difficult to me, as I always like to be more hands on in the work and like to trust my own work, however my tam has given me the confidence i need to be able to have in them.
