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?
Transparency and empathy go a long way, especially in inter-departmental communication.
Employees should be allowed – and even encouraged – to let their bosses know when they disagree with an opinion.
Create guidelines and a vision that employees want to embody.
