In a world where complexity frequently creates more work for us, learning how to do less seems almost impossible. In fact, doing less may seem counterintuitive when we're caught up in the complexities of business.

But it's learning to do less better than your competition that can give you an advantage.

In this episode I interview retired CEO and author John Bell. He's written a new book Do Less Better: The Power of Strategic Sacrifice in a Complex World. We're going to explore the nuances and needed leadership when doing less is best.

It's no secret that growth is the key to longevity of a business. Yet business owners and its leaders can fall prey to growth killers, limiting and in some cases eliminating the business.

Today we're going to zero in on one of the growth killers—tolerating dysfunctional leaders.

My guest is Robert Sher. He is published by outlets like Forbes.com and HBR online. He was the founder and CEO of Bentley Publishing Group. He now leads CEO to CEO, a consulting firm focused on coaching midsize company CEOs and their management teams.

Robert is also the author of a new book, Mighty Midsize Companies: How Leaders Overcome 7 Silent Growth Killers.

In this episode we discuss warning signs of dysfunction, high maintenance leaders, the myths of loyalty, and even the importance of earned trust.

Get ready to take notes. More great wisdom coming your way.
