Soft skills: Smart skills for Organizations
Teamwork is the key
It is okay not to have the answers to everything. Being an expert in one thing at one time does not mean that you are an expert in everything or all of the time. Find other experts to complement you and expect to take on a narrower role as the organization evolves.
Once you bring them on, it is about sharing the wealth, sharing the authority and sharing the vision: these are what make the organization move at an accelerated pace to success.
Believing that you and your organization are invincible can have dire consequences. Expect the best from people and many times you will get it from them, invest in good people!
Team does not begin and end at work, as you started out, your family, friends and relatives supported you with money, time, advice, encouragement and referrals. As you grow the organization, you have to figure out a way to make those people part of the extended team. Your empathy, appreciation and acknowledgments should extend to your family members and other supporters if you want their continued support.
