1. Be Honest With Your Team Members

One of the things that you should do as a great leader is being honest with your team members. The more people around you know what’s going on, the better it is for them to make decisions and feel comfortable with their roles in the company.

2. Communicate With Your Team Members As Much As Possible

As mentioned above, communication is one of the most important things for great leaders.

3. Lead By Example

One of the best ways to be a great leader at work is leading by example. As a startup founder, the rest of the team will follow what you do.

4. Hire The Right People For Your Team And Delegate Responsibilities

The most important thing for any startup founder is hiring talented people for your team. If there aren’t any talented people around you, you can’t achieve anything meaningful.

5. Let Your Team Members Do What They Are Good At

This is a very important thing for any startup founder to do! As a startup founder, you can’t do everything by yourself! So let your team members do what they are good at.

6. Let Your Team Members Take Responsibility For Their Decisions And Actions

If your team members can take responsibility for their decisions and actions, then they will perform better because of the freedom that comes with taking responsibility for their decisions and actions.
