TIP OF THE DAY: Your Fear Can Kill Your Whole Company

fred wilson tip of the day

Today’s tip of the day comes from Fred Wilson, a VC and principal of Union Square Ventures:

If the leader of the organisation is anxious, his or her fear pervades the organisation.
Everything comes from the top in a company. So it is best to have to have a leader who exudes confidence. You can certainly have too much confidence.
Arrogance and cockiness can be as harmful to a startup as anxiety and fear. A person who is quietly confident makes the best leader.
So if you are starting a company or building one, face your fears and move past them. It’s critically important to your company.
