On Becoming A Business Leader

Whether or not you’re a franchisor working in a skyscraper in Manhattan or a Subway franchisee managing a small team in Tacoma, Washington, you will need to be a leader in order for your business to succeed. But where does that capacity for leadership come from? We have some free insight.

Ugo Ginatta, CEO of Paciugo Franchising, has made his niche franchising coffee and gelato, two specifically Italian delicacies. With many years of business under his belt, Ugo has a pretty spot-on idea of how business leaders are made and he shared them with Small Business magazine recently.

Ugo offered the following 3 tips to wannabe business leaders:

  • Involve people for the start
  • Build a wide-angle view
  • Know when to take a back-seat

Also, Ugo offers this specific advice: “I like to be informal as a leader and like to be peer to peer when possible. I have a completely open door because I am here for long hours. I’m normally the first one in the door and almost the last to leave in the evening.”

He’s always accessible, but he’s also an example to those around him. Perhaps it’s true that business leaders are born and not made, but you can learn a lot from Ugo’s career trajectory and the success he has enjoyed.
