From Start-Up to Grown-Up
From Start-Up to Grown-Up gives you, the founder and CEO of a great start-up, the knowledge and experience that executive coach Alisa Cohn has gained from her 2 decades coaching startups, including companies such as Etsy, Venmo, DraftKings, Foursquare and The Wirecutter.
The book is a guidebook for anyone who wants to grow as a leader. The first person you lead every day is yourself, so that’s where we start – providing you with effective and practical ways of maximizing your strengths, defusing your triggers, controlling your self-doubt and building on your motivators. With these self-management tools, you can then turn your attention to managing your team by learning how to communicate, how to diagnose and build culture, and how to find the soul in meetings. You’ll also discover the tools of management: how to delegate, give feedback, and create the environment for people to do their best work. In the last section, you’ll gain practical tools for managing the company as well as build the right relationship with your cofounder and your board. Finally, the appendix contains 14 scripts for you to use in holding your delicate or difficult conversations – never easy but essential to the success of your company.
Filled with stories drawn from Alisa’s experience, entertaining and practical, From Start-Up to Grown-Up is the critical handbook to gain the tools to build the company of your dreams.
