“Let Go To Grow” shows that the difference between a stagnant business and one that is successful often lies in how well the principal (i.e., the leader, the owner, the entrepreneur) is able to let go of daily responsibilities and delegate tasks to trusted employees and managers. Using real life examples, “Let Go to Grow” illustrates how the principal’s skill-set must change to allow the business to prosper.
