Entrepreneurship is not an exact science. It probably is the furthest thing from it. However most people mistake Entrepreneurship with the famed legend of the “One Man Army”, but in life as in the picture above if you tilt your head or your screen a tab bit you will see the supporting troops in the background.
Though fabled and celebrated the “One Man Army” approach is completely wide of the mark. According to this approach the Entrepreneur controls everything and gives limited responsibility to others. I think if Entrepreneurs are to run successful businesses then they must learn to trust others and share responsibility with them. Team effort plays a major role in the development and growth of a business. So by delegating out tasks to others Entrepreneurs not only reduce their workload, but also give opportunities to others to show their talents.
By encouraging teamwork and cooperation the Entrepreneur transforms from a “One Man Army to a 5-Star-General and this is usually accompanied by better service delivery, increased customer satisfaction and higher staff morale. Most importantly it allows the Entrepreneur to do his/her job of creating much better.
