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. But hiring, firing and managing take practice; few of us are born managers. Plus, every decision you make (good or bad) helps set the tone for your company culture. That's a lot of responsibility. Are you up to the task?
Your personal brand is essential to lifelong success because if you don’t understand it, your core values and day-to-day actions will be misaligned.
You have a team and network of people for good reason — to provide support when necessary.
Companies should embrace the “death of distance.”
