Hey, go-getter. Yes, you could do it all, but there are times it's best to step back and stop hurting your team's productivity and creativity. By their very nature, entrepreneurs are doers. While other people may scheme or dream up ideas, Entrepreneurs prefer to take action. That's how companies are born. The rub, however, is that the drive to do things can often become a hindrance for an entrepreneur over time. "As companies grow, many entrepreneurs have trouble moving from the doing phase to the leading phase," says Stephen Harvill, founder of Creative Ventures, a consulting company in Dallas, Texas.
