There are a few reasons why an entrepreneur might not succeed: a bad business idea, failure to implement your concept well, or the wrong team. To get things right and run a successful business, these are all critical components that you’re going to have to hit right on the head.

The main reason most entrepreneurs fail at delegating is their ego, because they believe that no one else can do it better. However, according to Howard M. Shore, humility is an important asset that entrepreneurs should embrace in order to build strong teams and thriving businesses. He also believes in having clear visions and clear priorities, and ensuring every team member is on the same page.

Howard M. Shore, Founder of Activate Group, joins Rich Goldstein in this episode of the Innovations and Breakthroughs Podcast to discuss employee management and building a company culture. He also talks about writing his two books, what he learned from working with large organizations, and his thoughts on validating and implementing business ideas.
