Divine Wisdom: Challenges for Faith-Driven Founders as Teams Grow

As your company grows from 6 or 7 employees to 15 or 40, a remarkable transformation unfolds. In the early days, everyone embraces many roles, becoming jacks-of-all-trades.

Yet, as your workforce expands, managers must shift from jacks-of-all-trades to masters of one, becoming experts in their specialized domains and leading focused teams.

Consider this: In the early stages, everyone contributes to acquiring new customers. The standout in sales often becomes the sales team leader when you expand, but this can be a mistake.


Because sales experts may struggle to lead effectively as you hire experienced reps. Before promoting, set clear expectations for growth.

Selecting your first team of managers is exciting, but it's where CEOs often make mistakes due to limited options.

If you promote, be honest with new managers about the challenges they'll face.

As revenue grows, hire top-level managers later to prevent team turbulence caused by inept leaders.

Ensure your initial choices are your best choices.

If you're a faith-driven founder, seek the Holy Spirit's guidance. He imparts wisdom in both spiritual and entrepreneurial matters.
