Self-awareness is a cornerstone of authentic leadership, if not also a prerequisite.

      Think Laterally to Help Your Startup Survive and Thrive

      A good business--so they say--should be like a tree. First, it builds an extensive system of roots. A sturdy trunk follows, and finally, the tree diversifies with branches. The trouble is that when you cut down the tree, it can't grow. And in a world where nine out of 10 startups fail, even if you make it through those first few years and become a household name, you're still not safe from the formidable ax. Still, let's say your original idea takes off.
