- How Does Your Leadership Team Rate?
Dave Girouard, Founder & CEO, Upstart
Dave describes the 6 criteria he uses to review the performance of executives / department leaders: 1. I have a high degree of confidence that [your function] will consistently execute well. 2. You have the skills, commitment, and leadership necessary to lead your team for the company we aim to be in two years. 3. You’re chronically discontent with where the company and your department is today. 4. You exercise great judgement and wisdom when it comes to what’s critical to our business. 5. You have a paranoia and sense of urgency matching my own. 6. I’d trust you to meet one-on-one with our most critical constituencies on the most difficult topics.
