Business leaders need to build a foundation to prepare their company for weathering surprises. When that foundation is solidly built, it enables leaders to make better decisions. For start-up founders who have never run a business before, there are simple guardrails that can make a key difference.
Growing a start-up is an exhilarating ride. But too often, leaders are unprepared for the unexpected — and suddenly all that early momentum stalls out. Leaders need solid ground for making the right decisions.
Leaders need to carefully consider their brand, their messaging, their values and their product — and understand how it enhances people’s lives. Knowing that is just the start to maintaining firm footing, so even surprise challenges can be overcome.
