Before the Slovenian public holiday, LSBC team met to learn about distributed and connected leadership. We took the opportunity to get the knowledge from Grace Rachmany, who together with Marco Houwen wrote a book SO, YOU’VE GOT A DAO…: MANAGEMENT FOR THE 21ST CENTURY. The book gives, among others, the answer how to manage efficiently in the age of remote work. Workshop with Grace gives even better opportunity to find out about weakness of your business, possible solutions for them, but also how to improve your business potential. With this help you will define your mission, core values and leave the workshop inspired, just like we did. The meeting took place in Poligon – the best possible spot in Ljubljana for remote working.

Many people dream of their business. At the same time, the reasons why people decide to open their own business are different for everyone. For some, this is an opportunity to realize oneself, for others it is a way to earn money and be independent, for the third – this is the withdrawal from unemployment. Desire, this is just the beginning. And what to do next? With what to begin, to whom to go? LSBC prepared for you 10 steps of a beginner businessman.

Hidden champions are relatively small (often S&MEs), but worldwide successful market-leading companies, which are not widely known to the public. Their prosperity is explained by niche and often technological orientation, innovative culture, customer-centered philosophy, commitment to excellence in their area of operations. In addition, the know-how and expertise of such companies are implicit. This provides for their unique nature of success and, respectively, name.
A key element in the success of your business is the team. Each member of the team must be carefully approved, especially if you are just starting your business. LSBC has formulated its 7 rules on how to build a team in a beginner startup.
1. If you are just starting a business, do not look for the “first circle” of people on recruiting resources.
People should come to you, whose motivation now is NOT to find a new job, but to work for you, believing in your product and making it a billion-dollar business.
2. The core of the project (key people making key strategic decisions) should be no more than 5 people.
Remember, the more key people, the longer any decisions are made, because you need to listen to everyone and, as a result, agree on a common vision.
