Tim O’Shaughnessy, founder of the daily deals company LivingSocial, truly is social in his approach to leading.
“One thing I try to do is spend time with each of my direct reports and each of their direct reports, even if it’s only 15 minutes a month,” he says. “That’s 80 people. I can have meaningful conversations with 80 people. Not 5,000. I don’t always hit everybody every month, but I strive to.”
He also likes bold new approaches: “We formalized those values and painted them on the walls of our offices. ‘Make strong moves’ is one of them. If you’re not nervous about one or two decisions every day, you probably aren’t trying hard enough.”
