If you�ve been running your business 10 years or more, it�s probably time for fresh leadership. Consider bumping yourself up to chairman and getting a new CEO.
Recognize that fatigue and boredom are signs you�ve been at the helm too long.
Answer honestly: Are you resistant to new ideas and risks? It so, you may be impeding your company�s progress.
Ask yourself if you are still growing and learning. If not, that�s another sign of personal stagnation as a leader.
If you think you�re becoming too set in your views, surround yourself with people who challenge your thinking.
