A woman asked “faster alone, farther together?” I answered it takes both, at the right time. Working alone in the beginning helps to gain clarity and focus on your goals, but knowing when to shift gears to build your team will take you farther. A leader knows when it’s time to build. When driving a car with manual transmission, we have to pay attention to when the engine seems to be overworking, that’s when it’s time to shift. Accelerating always requires shifting into higher gears. Failing to shift at the right time may leave you revved up going no where.
