Maybe not right away. It is highly likely that your initial investment will not be on building an HR team. However, if you are looking for success, there are some things you must pay attention to in the early days. Success for a startup can range from wanting to be acquired by a larger organization, wanting to turn profitable in ‘x’ years or grow in size or offerings.

In today’s world, it is emerging tech that enables companies to cut operating costs, boost productivity and deliver the ultimate customer experience.

“Creating your own barometer for change”
Delegation is a core leadership skill.
If you can’t effectively delegate, you will hit a point where you become totally overloaded and you’ll become ineffective.
But few companies teach people how to effectively delegate. It’s one of those things that everyone assumes you pick up as you gather experience. The problem with this approach is that you’re basically using trial and error until you get it right – if you get it right.

It’s a well-worn phrase from Heraclitus:
“Everything changes and nothing stands still”
or otherwise translated: the only constant is change.
