How to develop a startup mindset

We live in the "startup era". Every day projects grow in the world like mushrooms after rain — there are thousands of success stories and failures. Being a startuper is almost a trend.
What does it take for a startup to skyrocket? Great idea, money, and connections. Undoubtedly. But the framework of everything is mindset that does not limit us and, conversely, provides unlimited resources for creativity.
What do you need to do to develop this mindset in yourself?

Master self-management.

No matter how trite it may sound. Being a good performer is the first step to becoming a leader. If a person copes well with their duties, with the task assigned to them, it means that they have already learned how to interact with the team, solve current tasks, and take responsibility for their part of the work.

Try to have an open, free, and honest conversation with other people.

It seems to be simple, but many people are learning it all their lives. Part of the secret of a leader's charisma lies in their freedom to communicate with others. People feel you trying to sell them... your self. It also works the other way around, when you sincerely try to give something to others and develop the team. A successful manager is a person who is able to organize the work of other people in such a way where the team achieves high results through joint efforts.

Develop the power of persuasion.

Engagement is contagious and ... extremely compelling. A true leader is a person who, without exaggeration, lives the life of the company and its interests. And this is their main secret. They do not just serve; they do not wait for the end of the working day. For them, the success of the company is their personal success. The achievements of the company's employees are a source of pride. It is this confidence in yourself and in the success of the company that captivates others and turns a person from a manager, who is making people follow, into a leader, who is followed.
