Maybe you've thought, "Even if I could work 24 hours a day every day for months, I'd never catch up," or "If I could only clone myself--it would be so much better. No one else can do what I do." You find yourself missing deadlines, or worse, unable to respond to new customers, and opportunities are slipping through your fingers. If only sleep were optional! From the outside, everything seems to be going well, but you feel like you're struggling as a leader and need more help. Sleep is NOT optional and just working more hours won't take your company to the next level.
Tandem Leadership illustrates these problems and how to solve them through the fictional character of Marcus Kinsey, a newly minted entrepreneur of a fast-growing company. Like many entrepreneurs, Marcus sees an opportunity and creates his own company to seize upon that opportunity. But he doesn't get far before he realizes that his vision and hard work alone won't make his company a success nor give him the life he wants as an owner. Marcus learns about the Tandem Leadership pro-cess and begins to carefully craft the business and personal life he had always hoped to achieve.
The "second-in-command" or #2 position, often underrated, is a cornerstone of a company's growth and success. Understanding how to add this key element to your company successfully increases the odds of making the transition from a solopreneur to a true CEO.
