My latest read, The Founder’s Mentality: How to Overcome the Predictable Crisis of Growth, offers an amazing insight into the defining traits of the “founder’s mentality”, behaviors typically embodied by a fearless and determined founder or leader, and why it is such a forceful recipe for success.

Breaking Down the Founder’s Mentality Key Traits: Setting the Stage for Successful Custom Corporate Gifting

The authors, Chris Zook and James Allen break down the traits into three areas.

  1. Front line obsession for relentless experimentation, frontline empowerment, and customer advocacy
  2. Insurgency for the bold mission, spikiness, and limitless horizons.
  3. The owner’s mindset with a strong focus on cash, a bias for action, and an aversion to bureaucracy.

The book goes on to provide a roadmap for unleashing these attributes and ideas.

At Keith Lipert Coporate Gifting, we have long believed that gifts that celebrate these founders can provide leadership with inspirational stories to share with stakeholders.
