    I can ask someone to fix something 50 times. If they think they can do it, they’ll bop their heads against a wall and not do it 50 times in a row. That’s why a lot of startups fail. People think they can do the job, run into walls, follow up by running into them again.

    It takes more… you have to have the insight to run a tight ship and demand excellence. You have to know your team better than they know themselves sometimes.

    I have a counter point but I work for a Fortune 500 company…the leadership and operational aspect is 360 degrees different BUT the root cause of this issue is hiring the right people and not so much delegation. Delegation is ment to remove work from you to free you up to do other things and

    If you have to follow up 50 times (in reality its 3 times) you need to make a staffing change. A start up needs talented folks that are fully cross trained in all aspects of the business to gain traction and reach excellence.
