As a partner, Tish Squillaro faces every challenge as an opportunity for a solution.

The belief that keeping a tight rein on every aspect of the business will ensure its long-term success. This belief is a fallacy because as the business grows, it is impossible for one leader to do it all- it’s impractical, it’s unsustainable, and it’s certainly no way to scale your business for growth.
Control triggers other types of Headtrash (insecurity, paranoia, fear) in a leader’s colleagues. With limited opportunity to express their talents, employees may start to doubt themselves. “Why doesn’t my boss think I can handle this? There must be something I’m not doing right.”
Passive aggressiveness and micro-management are two of the very common forms of the HeadTrash of Control.
