The Team Leader
This philosophy and dynamic, especially in a family business, should be transferred to the office and the conference room table. Instead of the leader being a parent, the leader is the owner of the business and/or the manager of a department. The key to being a successful leader who creates successful employees that may, one day, take over the family business or the role of leader for a department is to allow your subordinates to learn, make mistakes, get up, and brush the dirt off to start again, in a new direction. This will allow the employee to build confidence and build trust between all parties. This is not just your role as the team leader, this is your responsibility.
