Don’t play politics. Don’t have secret agendas. Don’t try trick people. Don’t be sneaky.
People are watching.
If your team sees you secretly manipulating others, they’ll think you do the same with them.
No one wants to be manipulated.
People want honesty. They want the truth, straight up.
If you are sneaky, your team will lose trust.
If your startup loses trust, it will slow down.
If your startup slows down, you’ll fail.
Don’t manipulate your staff.
