Chuck Blakeman is a successful entrepreneur, and Founder and Chief Transformation Officer of Crankset Group. Crankset Group is committed to helping business executives re-humanize the workforce and, in Chuck's words, "Giving people their brains back.", referring to turning managers into leaders, and employees into stakeholders - rather than subscribing to top-down structures that stifle one's ability to act on decisions.
Chuck makes the distinction that managers have authority by title, but leaders have authority by merit. He tells us how your business can grow, with less effort, if you can turn responsibility over to leaders in your company. "The art of leadership is how few decisions a leader has to make."
Chuck is also an author, his first book, Making Money is Killing Your Business was rated “#1 Business Book of the Year” by NFIB, the largest business owner association in America. That book was followed by, Why Employees are ALWAYS a Bad Idea and his new book, "Bad Plans Carried Out Violently" comes out next year..
