Whether you manage a corner store, an international corporation, or a fishing trawler, you lead a business. As lord and master of your enterprise, you are the lighting rod for its every success and failure. You’re the person in whom your backers, suppliers, employees, and shareholders place their faith, and the onw with the lump in the throat when payroll is in doubt. In other words, yolu attract the heat. Sound familiar ? Then you’re among those who have chosen the challenge of leadership and all it stands for  — the quest for independence, financial security, and personal achievement. Whether you face the leadership challenge alone or flanked by advisors, its reward is always excitement, its penalty anxiety.
