Start-ups aren’t role based habitat; they are more like DIY (Do It Yourself) systems. The people involved must know the in and out of the work they are supposed to do. The more they know about how the output is required, the more they will strive to reach that level. Now, every system requires a leader. A leader in start-ups is the crux of how the system will be instituted for the coming years. One can define a leader to be the one that shows a path, walks on that path and makes a combined effort with the team to reach a goal. Several examples can be seen in our day to day life that proves why leaders are required.
A Leader Knows When And How To Generate A Resource:
The traditional method of managing resources may come handy when you are dealing with a predefined problem; but what about a new problem? Or a new challenge? When the leader knows that the system that he is establishing is DIY, he makes sure that every challenge is faced with a blueprint of the problem. He knows when to use what and how. Such a leader will guide his colleagues onto a successful path. A leader knows when an opportunity knocks on the door and how they as a team can gain maximum benefit from it.
A Leader Knows What To Prioritise:
Imagine a situation where one can no longer able to decide what to do first. Prioritising certain aspects of business will help yield maximum potential that is anticipated from a company. A leader knows this that which colleagues have what ability to deal with circumstances and he allocates the work accordingly. This makes it easy to deal the situation.
A Leader Doesn’t Know When To Quit:
Entrepreneurs face failures more recurrently than success. The time and effort that is out into developing a solution are precious. The people will give up if there is no appreciation or motivation left in a team. A leader knows that it is important to accept failures and try harder with new techniques to get improvised solutions. Any start-up will need someone to tell them not to quit till no stone is left unturned.
Therefore, a leader plays a huge role in prioritising work aspects, generating resources and helps to maintain the workflow.
