A founder’s job is to eliminate bottlenecks on all fronts. The organization works on its own. Many founders take things too personally and get into I will do it all myself. They end up being power centers or control freaks. When in real they should be a leader watching things from afar.

A successful organization requires freedom for its team. A team differentiates a successful organization. A leader has to hold them on all fronts, empower them, and see them progressing.

In short, a founder should be the chief bottleneck officer.
