1. Invest In Your Team
“Hire the best for your team,” said Steve Jobs, Founder of Apple. Being a CEO, he said, is not about mastering the ability to wear many hats or try to excel at everything. The secret to success is to surround yourself with talented people and delegate work effectively.
2) Obsess about customers/clients
“Focusing on the customer makes a company more resilient, ” says Jeff Bezos, the founder and executive chairman of Amazon. “We’re not competitor obsessed, we’re customer-obsessed. We start with the customer and we work backwards.” And there is no doubt that it has worked wonderfully for Amazon!
3) Optimism is key
