Like it or not, you're a leader. Not because you are "The boss", but, more importantly, because you have committed yourself to creating a company and realizing your vision. Leadership means more than managing; it means communicating, inspiring, empowering, and nurturing those who are in fact delivering your mission. For your leadership to have a positive impact, you must embrace your role and work to become the leader your business deserves. But, this may create a bit of a conundrum. Being the leader makes you not only a vital asset but also a liability if the company cannot operate without you.
