If you're an entrepreneur like me, then you want a business that performs. You want a business that does well. You want a business that does better than the businesses around you. And the fastest way to be able to do that. Once you start hiring a team, it is to create a performance culture. A culture. A performance culture is a culture that revolves around achievement. It revolves around getting things done. It revolves around finishing projects and making things happen. And you may be surprised that in order to create a performance culture, there are only three things that you, as the CEO, the visionary of your company, need to focus on and make sure that are present in order for everyone on your team to perform.
