Leadership Qualities Needed For Start Ups

Leadership in a well-established company as compared to a start up is very different. While the former gives a comfortable environment to work in, the latter comes with a set of challenges that can be handled with a sense of freedom. Although much vagueness and indecision prevail, the satisfaction of working from scratch towards successfully driving an enterprise, gives an experience unlike any other. But there are some essential qualities that a leader handling a start-up must have, in order to manage as well as lead with the minimum resources available at disposal. In this write up, we will discuss these qualities and the significant impact that the right leadership will have on the success of an enterprise.

  1. Ability to foster an environment with mutual trust and respect between team members
  2. Ability To Take Initiatives And Multi-Task: During the establishment of a new company when everything is new and the resources are limited, the leader should be able to Multi-task in the face of lesser manpower and the existing pressure to meet targets.
  3. Ability To Lead People: Operations in a start-up have a limited number of people, but the key is to have them working in close synchronization. Individual views always differ, but may escalate into problems in case of a hectic work environment.
  4. Excel At Guidance And Communication: At such a critical stage, the employees need guidance at every step while having complete information about the effect of their efforts and other information that must be properly conveyed to them. Uncertainty should be avoided at all costs.

A leader is seen as a person who leads a group without prejudice and directs it in order to increase productivity.

Tips For Becoming A Leader At Work

A leader makes the employees feel good about themselves and their work. So, to become an effective leader, it is very important to possess the following qualities:

  • Be Human
    Just because you are a leader, you cannot insult any of the employees purposely or without any purpose. You should be un-biased and must confer respect to employees.
