  • Growth is optional
    As a leader, your responsibilities will be different depending on the size of your small business, Josh Patrick of Stage 2 Planning Partners writes. "[T]he point is that a business owner has a choice: You don't have to get swept up in growth," he writes.

"Employee engagement, motivation, and results are less about introducing new leadership behaviors and more about just stopping the stuff that makes employees crazy," Giulioni writes.
