Governments around the world have understood the importance of angel investment for boosting their economies, with many, particularly in Europe, offering generous tax incentives for angel investors.  Last summer, G20 leaders publicly acknowledged that angel investment would prove to be a crucial element in boosting and stabilising the economy, emphasising a current lack of angel investors and need for more of them.

Will your business still be in business five years from now? That depends on whether it’s still relevant to your customers - whether what it does still matters to them. To stay relevant, businesses must indisputably know why they matter to their customers. That said, maintaining relevance in a world that’s changing so very fast is very challenging.

Mostafa Sayyadi, Author, Transformational Leadership: How To Prosper as a Leader In Today's Hypercompetitive Environment

The world is constantly changing as professionals and consultants are increasingly participating in world-class settings. Hypercompetition has become the norm. Change is also a crucial part of hypercompetitive environments. Organizations can design, copy, or update products and services easier with more adaptability then ever today. CEOs should, therefore, compete globally but must think locally if they expect to exceed.

If you want to have a great culture from top to bottom, you must eliminate any semblance of an “us and them” mentality.

Every company I’ve studied that has a great culture also has a leader living out that culture that is fully committed to it. These leaders pose questions to themselves regularly about what they are doing to maintain a healthy culture. They also tend to formalize their culture to ensure it is sustainable.

I definitely made my share of bad hires in the early days as a business owner: The salesperson who never made a sale. The admin who stole our software for her sideline business. The marketing rep who continually fell asleep at her desk and did her personal errands while out of the office on “company business.”
