Predictive Leadership: Avoiding the 12 Critical Mistakes That Derail Growth-Hungry Companies
by Dando, Kirk

Surprisingly, most companies fail not because demand is low or conditions are difficult, but simply because they don't know how to manage, nurture, or even maintain their own growth and success. At each developmental stage, they become vulnerable to chaos, no matter how strong or expert their leaders. Most leaders feel a sense of isolation, assuming they have to "know it all" and end up making critical mistakes. Dando calls these critical mistakes the "12 Warning Signs of Success," and he helps leaders across industries identify, anticipate, and avoid them on the way from startup to Fortune 500. Maybe you've hired the wrong person, have too many direct reports, or say yes to everything; you might believe your own hype, incentivize failure, or lose track of your core values. Dando, known in leadership circles as the Company Whisperer"," encountered all the same challenges as a C-level executive in a high-growth billion-dollar business, and he knows that these moments of truth determine whether the leader and the company become a strong, mature, and sustainable organization, or drift toward an uncertain future.
