The best leaders are those who have a complete and intimate understanding of every facet of their business and industry. Leaders know everything about their own companies (its strengths and weaknesses, for example), their customers, their competition, and the business environment in which they operate.

And only the leader who’s intimately engaged in the business can know enough to have the comprehensive view and ask the tough, incisive questions.”
Without the answers to these questions, or with the wrong answers, you will make mistakes in marketing, sales,and business strategy that can be fatal to your business.
