自信的创业者绝不会做的7件事

Sujan Patel 2014年11月18日

如果你想做一名成功的创业者,你必须培养自信。唯有具备韧性、信念与决心,创业才能成功。而要做到这一点,你就必须避免糟糕的领导者经常犯的7个错误倾向。

    若想做一名成功的创业者,你必须培养自信。唯有具备韧性、信念与决心,创业才能成功。要创建一家公司并使其安然度过前18个月,创业者必须避免一些糟糕的领导者经常犯的错误:

    1. 猜疑自己和员工

    真正的自信源自对团队和自己的信任。创业者应该保证足够长的招聘过程,以找到并留住合适的人才,因为人才关乎公司成败。许多雇主现在提供入职前假期,或根据第一个项目来聘用员工,在确定员工真正适合公司之后再提供全职岗位。

    提供有趣、有保障的工作环境,以及丰厚的福利、利润分享和新技术,让员工知道你欣赏他们,同时也可以帮助员工以更饱满的情绪创造公司的未来。

    如果你发现你开始对自己或员工产生猜疑,立即纠正这种错误的态度,以免动摇自己的信心。

    2. 妥协于所谓的优先事项

    在创业过程中,优秀的员工是关键,但许多创业者太过于忙碌公司的运营,从而忽视了生活中对他们非常重要的其他事情。创建公司是他们最关心的事情,但是,如果不采取重视的态度,并安排出专门的时间,他们与朋友和家人的关系会在不知不觉中变淡。

    这同样适用于爱好与“自我关怀”时间:创业者不仅要计划工作项目或会议,也要安排冥想、锻炼身体、阅读和其他享乐时间(即便只是花几个小时浏览ESPN或其他新闻网站)。波特兰心理治疗诊所(Portland Psychotherapy Clinic)发现,个人爱好比金钱更能让一个人幸福。从事这些爱好,并抽出时间陪伴至爱亲朋,可以减轻压力,提高自信。

    3. 拒绝学习新技能

    成功自信的创业者必须适应公司当前的需求。虽然你可能需要一位程序员或设计师来修改网站,但这有可能超出预算,或者他们正在从事其他项目,脱不开身。这种情况需要自信的创业者不惧怕学习新事物,例如编程或图形设计。Skillshare、Lynda、CodeAcademy、UniversalClass和Treehouse等网站(或当地社区学院)可以帮助创业者不用花大价钱便可学到新的技能。

    4. 过于关注外部评价

    听到媒体或其他人对你公司或产品的正面反馈,确实能带来持续的满足感,但自信的创业者和公司没必要沾沾自喜,听到负面反馈时也不应该妄自菲薄。

    专注于内部目标和理念,才是创建公司的关键,所以,外部反馈确实是完善产品的有效途径,但它不应该左右你的工作或毁掉你的生活。许多公司老板只关心别人的看法,结果妨碍了公司的创意过程,反过来导致他们的产品出现问题。

    If you want to be a successful entrepreneur, you have to bleed confidence. Starting something on your own takes tenacity, faith and determination to make it work. To have a business that makes it past the first 18 months, these qualities of poor leaders are certainly going to be on your list of things to avoid:

    1. Second guess themselves and their employees

    True confidence comes from being able to trust your team and yourself. Make sure your hiring process is long enough to find and keep the right people, as this can make or break your company. Many employers are now offering pre-cations or hiring employees for an initial first project to make sure they are a good fit before hiring them full time.

    Offering a fun and secure work environment with great benefits, profit sharing and new technology can let employees know you appreciate them while also helping them become more emotionally invested in the future of the company.

    If you find yourself second guessing yourself or your employees, take the time to fix it before your confidence becomes too shaken.

    2. Compromise their priorities

    When you are building a business, great employees are key, but many entrepreneurs get so tied up in making their business work that they forget about what else in their lives are important to them. Building a business is their main concern, but relationships with friends and family can slip through the cracks if they don’t make it a priority to schedule time for them.

    This also goes for hobbies and “self-care” time: meditation, exercise, reading and other things done for enjoyment (even if it’s just browsing on ESPN or some other news site for a few hours) deserve to be scheduled just as much as work projects or meetings. It has been shown that hobbies make people more happy than money, according to the Portland Psychotherapy Clinic. Confidence is boosted when stress is reduced through hobbies and time with loved ones.

    3. Refuse to learn new skills

    The confident and successful entrepreneur has to adapt to their business’s current needs. While you may need a programmer or designer to make website changes, it may not be in the budget, or they might stuck working on a different project. Instances like this require the confident entrepreneur to put aside any trepidation at learning something new, such as coding or graphic design. Websites such as Skillshare, Lynda, CodeAcademy, UniversalClass and Treehouse (or local community colleges) can help entrepreneurs learn new skills without a high monetary cost.

    4. Focus on external validation

    It can be endlessly satisfying to hear positive feedback from the media or others about your company or products, but confident entrepreneurs and companies shouldn’t take it less (or more) seriously than negative feedback.

    Focusing on internal goals and ideas is what built the company in the first place, so while external feedback is a great way to improve a product, it shouldn’t have the power to completely overhaul how you work or ruin your day. Too many business owners focus on what others are thinking and it ends up impeding their creative process, which in turn causes their products to suffer.
