Great leadership boils down to managing one key startup asset: your people.
You can’t expect to hire engaged startup employees off the bat -- your job is to manage them so they’re inspired to work harder, stay loyal and meet company goals.

Are you up to the task?
“Be transparent from the beginning, even if that means losing potential business.”
Before you start making changes, conduct research to find out what your employees like and dislike about the current space.
If you don’t believe in your mission 100 percent, your customers certainly won’t either.
