  1. Accept that a great company starts with you. If the company’s top management isn’t excited about going to work every day, don’t expect anyone else to be.
  2. Establish a solid foundation. Strong companies have core purpose and core values, along with Strong Haired Goals (BHAG). This is an aspiration that everyone can work towards, meaningful, ambitious and stimulating for everyone. You won’t get people excited if the company’s goal is simply to make the boss rich.
  3. Have a plan – and make sure everyone knows it. Figure out how your company will achieve the BHAG and communicate this to your entire team. When everyone on your team knows what the plan is, they’ll work harder to help you achieve it.
  4. Recruit and retain the best people. The biggest mistake most business owners make is hiring fast and firing slowly. It must be another path.
