On September 17, 2019 in New York, Glynn Capital hosted an executive thought leadership dinner with CEOs, CFOs, and Head of People leaders to discuss how to build culture and best practices when scaling a business. A few insights for company builders to consider:
1/Think about talent as culture adds vs. culture fits. You don’t want to keep hiring people that sound and look like you.
2/Have patience when you’re building something new that’s disrupting an industry.
3/Different talent needs and values for the business evolve over time. The one consistent must have is alignment of ambition. Is everyone constantly dreaming big?
4/Everyone is on the same team. Work with “we” vs. “me” mentality.
Thank you to our portfolio and network leaders for their valuable contributions to this discussion.
