DILEMMA: Two of us founded our business 10 years ago and it has been a tremendous success. Well, until recently. We just don't get on any more.
The simplest of decisions takes for ever to agree, and it's pulling the company in different directions. I'm worried that my partner might damage the business unless we do something soon.
ISSUES: What's really the problem? Should we take what has been said at face value? I wouldn't. Most high-growth businesses outgrow at least one of their founders. Many outgrow them all. It could be you that's the problem. But what if the capabilities of the founders isn't the issue?
