Today I spent a bit of time thinking about employees. Having people that actually work under me is a lot further away than I like to think. There are the basic things that I am missing like finished products, customers, job security, stuff like that. Then there are the even less obvious things that don't have. This would be things like a formal process for showing people what I have, a solid direction for where I'm going to take my company, and generally a way to talk to people to get them to a point where they would want to help. This doesn't mean just mean telling people what I'm doing, it's a way to appear friendly when I'm not really in a position to be friendly, at least from a business perspective.
