Yes, you can manage yourself while managing your business. According to the Professional Dairy Producers of Wisconsin Managers Memo, these five tips can help you do just that:

  • Recognize when you have exceeded your abilities and time. Hire individuals who can help you handle the overflow. 
  • Identify and seek out a mentor who can help you move your business to the next level.
  • Transform yourself as a leader. For instance, don’t rule by dictate. Listen to your employees and implement some of their ideas. 
  • Be self-aware. Identify the leadership style that works for you.
  • Be a “servant leader.” Identify people in your organization with high growth potential and then provide them with the resources they need to grow even further.
