Understand how your actions impact others and ultimately your business.

Sean speaks of guidelines for MBA programs, however these "needs" easily apply to any entrepreneur.

  1. Greater self-awareness. Executives want managers who understand the impact they have on the performance of others.
  2. Development of more practical skills. Today’s managers should come equipped to lead teams, run meetings, deliver effective presentaions and give performance feedback.
  3. Understanding the big picture. Modern organizations are complex organisms, and leaders, to be effective, must understand the context of how decisions are made. It’s often better to find a good solution that can be executed easily rather than the ‘right’ solution that would be disruptive to implement.
