People, people, people. They can make or break your business.

Statistics show that even in an upward economy, startups fail 80% of the time. That means 9 out of 10 startups with a great idea never make it past 5 years.

Many factors contribute to this; however, we have found that the circumstance that adds to the highest complexity is people. As soon as you add your first employee or team member the complexity of the organization increases.

As you move from a single founder and start to add team members the tendency is to hire the skills you need when in reality it is more important to hire for fit. Yes, skills are essential, however, we can always find the right skills, but we may not be able to work with the wrong attitude and behavior.

You will walk away from this session understanding the three keys to success: people, process and profit.

You will also learn the faces of leadership and the non-negotiables that will enable your startup to move forward with predictability.

In the end, this will allow you as a founder to:
1. Predict how growth will impact you.
2. Focus on the right things at the right time.
3. Adapt leadership styles to the changes necessitated by growth.

Who is it for? Early-stage businesses.
