Useful Founder Traits
Self-knowledge: Understanding the self is the highest form of education. Founders should understand themselves well. The importance of self-knowledge is immense when it comes to building a company. The journey not only involves a lot of interpersonal dealings, but it also involves facing endless streams of difficulties and challenges. Without a proper understanding of the self, first of all, we will not be able to deal with ourselves – our emotional ups and downs and deal effectively with others either. The first skill founders should try to develop is a thorough understanding of the self – what makes you tick, what excites you, what depresses you, when you operate better, and so on.
