Hero leaders are the kinds of leaders that build businesses that become headless chickens if the boss decides to take a vacation. The book From Good to Great by Jim Collins perfectly describes this kind of hero as a Level 4 Inspirational Leader.
They build the kind of business where systems are not put in place and most problems or challenges that arise are often treated as an opportunity for the leader to prove his “Best-Ness” one more time.
If you aim to build a service business or really any business with employees and don’t fix your possible “Hero Leader” tendencies, you will never fully flourish in happiness and will find it difficult to achieve freedom of time without sacrificing business success which is one of the key components of becoming a truly successful entrepreneur.
