In This Episode:

Do you ever feel like YOU are the bottleneck preventing growth within your organization? Unfortunately, it’s a common mistake business owners make every day: getting stuck in the weeds, becoming the “linchpin,” and slowing down growth.

But there is a better way — one that gets you back into the strategic leadership seat, and that gets your organization back on track. Our guest this week is an expert in helping business owners make that shift (and she’s had to do it herself, too). Isabelle Mercier-Turcotte is a “no-nonsense” dynamo, born to catapult heart-centered entrepreneurs and business leaders to build impactful brands, business and lives. She’s also one of the few repeat guests on the Measure Success Podcast.

Listen to the full episode for more on how to build a strategy that will get you from where you are now to where you want to go, how to establish a deeper “why” for your goals, the art and science of delegation, and why Isabelle swears by a “gambling fund” at her organization (it’s not what you think).
