Memo to CEO: Build a Team You Don’t Have to Manage; a Team of Trust

Businesses are built on a team you nurture and trust when you are away

The best team is the team you don’t have to manage.

MEMORANDUM

TO:  CEO

FROM:  R.G. RILES

SUBJECT:  A TEAM YOU TRUST

If you don’t build and nurture a team of people you trust so much that they can make decisions and run the company while you are away, then you haven’t built a team at all.  What you have is a job; not a business.

While team-building is tricky, building a self-managing team of immediate reports is vital to building a real business.

-R.G. Riles
