On Entrepreneurs

“Lead entrepreneurs and team members who understand team building and teamwork have a secret weapon.  Many with outstanding technical or other relevant skills, educational credentials, and so on, will be at once prisoners and victims of the highly individualistic competitiveness that got them where they are.  They may be fantastic lone achievers, and some may even “talk a good team game.”  But when it comes to how they behave and perform, their egos can rarely fit inside an airplane hangar.  They simply do not have the team mentality.

“While there are innumerable blends and variations, most likely the teams fo those firms that succeed in growing up big will share many of the following:

  • Cohesion
  • Teamwork
  • Integrity
  • Commitment to the long haul
  • Harvest mind-set
  • Commitment to value creation
  • Equal inequality
  • Fairness
  • Sharing of the harvest
