  • Thanks for this, at least now I know that allowing my designer delegate tasks to me with the intention of training his management skills isn't that bad of an idea..,. I did a short reflection on how it was like to be working in a company that has awesome culture: http://bit.ly/1XxdFPe and honestly, there seems to be a couple of similar points we can all learn from.

  2. Starting a new company is a daunting prospect. On top of worrying about if you’ll run out of money, or even find people who support your business, many new founders are now wondering: How can I cultivate a great company culture so that people will actually want to work with me? So we asked successful entrepreneurs to share their thoughts on the topic. Read on for 8 tips on establishing, maintaining, and hiring for a great company culture. >> Brought  to  you  by  Wrike.com      Where  work  gets  done
  3. Brought  to  you  by  Wrike.com      Where  work  gets  done ADVICE ON MOLDING COMPANY CULTURE
  4. “Far too often, companies create core values and then never revisit them — this is a mistake. Your employees need to live and breathe your core values. They need to not only know what these values are, but understand the reasons behind why you place such a strong emphasis on them.” ~ Michael Krasman Co-founder/CEO UrbanBound Brought  to  you  by  Wrike.com      Where  work  gets  done ESTABLISH COMPANY VALUES AND REVISIT THEM FREQUENTLY
  5. “My philosophy on startup culture can be summed up in one sentence: 'business for good is simply good for business.' I'm a big proponent of incorporating a spirit of giving into a business.” ~ Blair Nastasi Founder/CEO Media Moguls PR Brought  to  you  by  Wrike.com      Where  work  gets  done FOCUS ON VALUES THAT MATTER TO YOU
  6. “What we look for are people that have similar temperaments. Temperament is different than personality. We have several differing personalities, but the temperaments are similar. That means we can all agree to disagree on many issues, yet still walk away without a lot of emotion and negativity. Everyone is still cohesive and rowing in the same direction, which I believe is critical for any size company.” ~ Jonathan Tang Founder/CEO Vastrm Brought  to  you  by  Wrike.com      Where  work  gets  done COLLECT A TEAM OF PERSONALITIES THAT GET ALONG (NOT MATCH)
  7. “You need adaptive, flexible people. You need curious people. People often forget culture starts with one person taking one step and others following. You need people who will take those first steps and others who rally behind first movers. Ideally everyone needs to do both: lead & follow. Every great startup needs an army of fans and fanatics.” ~ Nick Kellet Co-founder Listly Brought  to  you  by  Wrike.com      Where  work  gets  done ALLOW YOUR TEAM MEMBERS TO BE LEADERS AND FOLLOWERS
  8. Brought  to  you  by  Wrike.com      Where  work  gets  done ADVICE ON HIRING FOR CULTURE FIT
  9. “Our culture is very open. Everyone knows what our vision is for the quarter and year. For hiring people in an open culture, we want people that are trustworthy and able to come up with great ideas. We often use the airport test during interviews: Is this person someone you would want to be stuck with on a two hour layover at the airport?” ~ Sean Higgins Co-founder ilos Videos Brought  to  you  by  Wrike.com      Where  work  gets  done SEEK PEOPLE THAT ALREADY MATCH YOUR EXISTING CULTURE & VALUES
  10. “I like to see candidates who are highly curious with a "get it done" attitude and a commitment to continuously building and improving on their core skill set. I like to see a passion for the cause, people who care about what your company and product do, and the problems you solve.” ~ Andrew Filev Founder/CEO Wrike Brought  to  you  by  Wrike.com      Where  work  gets  done FIND PEOPLE GENUINELY INTERESTED IN YOUR INDUSTRY
  11. “Relationships skills, great attitude, no egos, and a willingness to learn and be anything is way more important than hiring a person with the 'perfect' skills for a position. Most skills can be trained. The ability to work in a team, check your ego at the door, constantly learn new things, and be flexible in a very dynamic work environment are more important and much harder to teach people or make up for if they are lacking.” ~ Elizabeth Frisch Founder/CXO The Thrival Company Brought  to  you  by  Wrike.com      Where  work  gets  done PLACE EMPHASIS ON PERSONALITY, NOT JUST EXPERIENCE
  12. “When it comes to screening candidates for various positions there are few questions that I like to ask that are sort of unorthodox. One of my favorites to see if there is a culture fit is: “If you have to make a decision in which one decision will benefit the customer and the other will benefit the company, which one would you pick?” It is a great question since both answers can be right based on the company they are applying for.” ~ Mack Dudayev Co-founder/CEO InsureChance Inc. Brought  to  you  by  Wrike.com      Where  work  gets  done ASK INTERVIEW QUESTIONS THAT MAKE PEOPLE PAUSE
