Entrepreneurs worldwide know that business is as much about growth and strategy as it is about understanding human dynamics. My recent interaction with George Morris, an esteemed entrepreneur and a certified Scaling Up coach with a wealth of experience in EOS Traction, only cemented this belief.

The Undying Relevance of Fundamentals

In an age of tech disruptions and rapidly evolving business models, it's easy to get swept away by the latest trend. However, George emphasized time and again the importance of sticking to the fundamentals. Business basics, he asserts, are the bedrock on which lasting empires are built. They offer clarity in chaos and direction during distractions.


The Mind of an Entrepreneur

The entrepreneur's journey, while rewarding, is laden with immense pressures. We delved deep into the often-underdiscussed topic of entrepreneurial mental health. George believes that self-awareness, vulnerability, and nurturing an environment of empathy are crucial for mental well-being. A healthy entrepreneur invariably leads to a healthier business.


Decoding Leadership and Team Synergies

Drawing from his vast experience in coaching and his own entrepreneurial journey, George shared his insights on leadership. The true essence of leadership, according to him, lies in inspiring alignment towards a shared vision. Recognizing and nurturing 'A-players' in a team, he feels, can be the difference between a good company and a great one.
