Understanding your clients, the market, your investors, your
board, your team, etc., is more than half the battle when it comes
to being a successful startup. This kind of insight into human
beings and human communities will require you to continually
investigate motivations, fears, and ambitions - beginning with
your own. Help your team find ways to know more about
themselves and each other. Strengthen the listening muscle.
The details of a work day are rarely what drive or hinder people.
There are bigger, deeper dynamics at play, and if we cultivate
our understanding of them, we’ll get much further in whatever
we are trying to do.
Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens. - Jimi Hendrix
