UMKC Startups Leadership Traits Essay
For the next couple of weeks we are going to dig in more to the startup-side of management. I hope that if you really stick with these next two assignments you will understand how deeply personal the management side of a startup is. And, how without values-based leadership, a startup will be much harder than it already is!
Stick with me, this week we will listen to 4, 20-30 minute podcasts. Next week, 4 more (8 total), all from the same show. I’m being a little experiment-y in that I’m having you listen to 8 episodes that are not consecutive, so there will be some holes in the plot line, but I think you’ll be fine without every piece of information (I hope!). The podcast is called Startup. If you’re into startups, or love a vulnerable, intimate story about humans being human, binge the whole dang thing because it’s so good!
The first episode is just to help you get a taste of what the show is about, the following 7 will touch on many themes from hiring diverse teams, to understanding the personal baggage we bring into a company. The episodes get progressively better and more interesting with each one.
