How do you build startup culture?

How do you grow your startup team?

How do you make your team into a team of leaders?

Well How?

Create a win:win startup culture

Yeah OK but How exactly?

  • Grow each individual team member
  • Reduce the effort for people to learn
  • Create a knowledge sharing culture
  • Lead teams to create their own identities
  • Enable team members to create their own brand identities
  • Make sure everyone wins
  • Encourage team member side projects
  • Create an iterative teaching culture
  • Everyone's first and foremost job responsibility is to teach

What's the one thing I can do to help my team right NOW??

Create a knowledge sharing culture -- make it clear to everyone that their first responsibility is to teach others on the team.
