Beirut-based organizational leadership consultant Michel Nabti explains the biggest challenge that he often sees in startups:
"Typically people who are starting up companies have great ideas, [and] technical expertise… [but] they are often challenged by what it actually means to manage their organization, going from very early with one or two or three partners, to a larger scale organization. That takes a very different skill set than entrepreneurialism [does]."
When it comes to building that managerial structure in a company, Nabti warns that top-down communication styles tend to dominate, but a healthy company needs a lot of bottom-up communication to occur in order to get vital information to key decision-makers.
