Since the beginning of the “great recession,” employment statistics continue to remain at dismal levels. While our nation produces more GDP today than in 2007, the jobs market has shed four million workers, with 12 million people on the sidelines actively seeking employment. Although employment levels have shown some signs of base-lining and even increasing, 60 percent of those new jobs are coming in positions that pay less than $13.83 an hour, according to the National Employment Law Project.

Welcome to Startupville, where the most important element of a company is an unstoppable, cohesive team. Having a lineup of driven go-getters that works hard, but can play just as hard, is the primary requirement a startup needs to succeed. There are a lot of misconceptions about leadership lurking throughout society today. For example, leaders must be intimidating and authoritarian; leaders must tell people what to do, but don’t ever do anything; and leaders are brainwashers. But at the end of the day, technology and business are merging, and coinciding with this change, the role of the leader has evolved. In this economy, strong leaders are able to influence their peers and their team’s needs without intimidation tactics. Instead, they fully understand the value of bringing together team members with unique perspectives, knowledge, and capabilities who can influence themselves to do what is best for the company.
In Startupville, especially with the young and lean “fledglings” flocking to Silicon Valley, the entire team is responsible for seeking out entrepreneurial-minded talent because they understand the integral role each potential team member plays. In startups, the smaller the team, the bigger the role each individual possesses. Each team member is essentially their own department, and they must treat their positions as such. The original team at a startup will eventually evolve into the C-Suite once the company takes off only if the core team members truly understand their roles, and this is integral to the team’s leadership strategy.
When you work for a startup, individual behavior must be discretionary and flexible—maybe not gymnast-flexible, but adaptable. No one can afford the time or energy to do your job for you—everyone has to assume his or her own role with very little guidance from the top. That being said, if a startup doesn’t have a cohesive team, they might as well say sayonara to any chance of success. Bottom line, if you plan to grow a corporation from scratch, the core team better be unified. This is Startupville.
