Introduction

Scaling your organization

Hiring talented people is the foundation for any startup, but convincing a high-quality candidate to leave their job and join your early-stage team is no small task. It might not be easy, but with careful attention, you can make sure your first hires help you find PMF (product-market fit) and shape a positive culture at your company for years to come.

As  a Founder or CEO, you’ll need to thoughtfully align your team and get things done. To be a strong leader at this stage, you’ll need to have clear priorities, and successfully manage your team.

This chapter discusses what it takes to scale your company, lead a high-performing team, and build a positive company culture.
