Publisher's Summary

Award-winning CEO Jacky Fischer presents her signature management method to help small businesses scale by avoiding the most common and destructive pitfalls.

Letting go to help your business grow is the apparent contradiction central to The Growth Paradox—and embracing it will lead to more profits, less stress, and happier employees.

If you as a leader hold on too tightly—to your people, to everyday decision-making, to the past, and more—you will cut off vital oxygen necessary for growth. The solution: stop being a control freak and instead empower your employees, get out of your own way, and establish a clear vision for the future.

Embrace the growth paradox to get unstuck and grow your company to the next level. By leaning into some key, counterintuitive business ideas, you’ll make space for changes that will lead to nonlinear growth.

These paradoxical ideas include:

  • Holding people accountable doesn’t work.
  • The company’s vision is the focus, not you.
  • Helping often hurts employees.
  • Give up power and control to increase growth.
  • Focusing on money can reduce profits.
  • Introducing big ideas can derail your progress.

Combined with lessons she learned from growing a small family business into an organization with annual revenue topping $40 million, Fischer offers practical tools for taking stock of where you are and charting an actionable plan for getting where you want to go so that you too can create hypergrowth in your business.
