Tim O’Reilly How I Failed

A company needs business discipline, identifying #strategicgoals, then investing and hiring to achieve those goals, just as much as it needs product, #marketing, sales, financial, and employee cultivation discipline. While our ideals are what define us, combining those ideals with a results-oriented business culture is how we have continued to thrive.

When you start out as an entrepreneur, it’s just you and your idea, or you and your co-founder’s and your idea. Then you add customers, and they shape and mold you and that idea until you achieve the fabled “product-market fit.” If you are lucky and diligent, you achieve that fit more than once, reinventing yourself with multiple products and multiple customer segments.

Leadership is about sharing, giving – making those around you better.   Leadership is about uniting and inspiring teams to optimally perform.   Leadership is caring about a societal cause that the business can influence.  This is what most businesses refer to as corporate social responsibility.    Leadership is indeed a social responsibility, yet many people are out of touch with how to be an effective leader.   Many people believe that because they carry an important title or have tenure within the organization, others will automatically follow them.   Today, leadership is much more than just authority – it’s about being ethical and staying true to your beliefs and values.
