EntreLeadership: 20 Years of Practical Business Wisdom from the Trenches Summary

The SQUEEZE: Succession planning is not easy to do when you have to add more layers of leadership. A small business owner is comfortable in a space of controlling every aspect of the business. But what happens when the growth of the business becomes bigger than the individual owner? Dave Ramsey answers this question in EntreLeadership: 20 Years of Practical Business Wisdom from the Trenches. In the book, Ramsey outlines the problem he has growing leaders using a one-dimensional, hand-to-hand method which initially involved growing and mentoring key leaders through one-on-one instruction. However, because the previous method was too time-consuming, Ramsey set out to create a more efficient method, using the classroom as a method for building, developing, and teaching leaders. Ramsey’s EntreLeadership is a must-read for business professionals.
