You may be the mastermind behind the business idea that has led to establishing your company, but your employees are the backbone of its success. No brand, no matter how necessary it may be, is immune to failure caused by poor internal structure and leadership.
Senior Advisor for Innovation in the Office of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton Alec Ross offers advice to established entrepreneurs who already have some success behind them: Keep an open line of communication going with those up and coming in your field. While many successful people feel they have a lot to offer their juniors, few take advantage of the relationship working as a learning experience both ways. Don’t allow your success to become isolating. Remaining au courant is a great indicator of recurring prosperity.
