Founder’s Syndrome occurs when founders, longtime leaders, or even board members become resistant to change in their organization. As a result, the organization becomes stagnant and ineffective, support dwindles, and quality employees become frustrated and leave. As organizations grow, the leadership qualities they once needed no longer work. Maturity requires different, visionary approaches. This informative webinar will highlight real-life examples of this syndrome, how it adversely impacts organizations, and steps they can take to deal with this important issue.
