Tekdi Enters its Teens !

Tekdi-enters-its-teens

Teens is that time between being a child and an adult when you start experiencing freedom & start liking the taste of it. It's that time when you slowly start taking the controls of your life into your own hands. It is like the first time you drive a car on a learner’s license with an adult riding shotgun. It's that time when your parents slowly start transitioning to being ‘guardians’ and helping you take control.

Depending on the nature of the business and the experience of its leaders, companies will most likely go through similar phases. When the company is just getting started, it needs careful nurturing & constant care from its leaders.

As it grows more people are added to the team, a culture starts to form and systems are put in place to allow the company to function in some areas ‘on its own’. This independence will free its leadership to start nurturing various aspects of the company to help it grow bigger and better in its areas of focus. It is a time to dream, experiment and go after aspirations with a passion and hunger. It is a time to explore, a time to build on the experience and guidance and grow.

As Tekdi turns 13, it is a time for us to reflect and a time to look forward.
