Q: Have you raised the capital needed to fund a committed, engaged team?
One of the requirements of leadership is having others be willing to follow you. To get them to do so you must pay them what they're worth.
No, I'm not talking about money or salary here. I'm talking about the true currency of a leader: Direction and Possibility. These two sides of the same coin make up essential capital for a leader.
Direction: You've got to know where you're going. Even if it is just "East!" If you don't know where you're headed, then you're not really leading. It's just wandering with you in front.
Possibility: What will you find along the way? A new land? Treasure? Peace of mind? Goals may even change over time, but if you don't have one to begin with they can't evolve.
