The Kind Of Leadership That Makes Startups Grow

Startups evolve into successful enterprises largely because of the leadership that is in place. One must meet the demands of a huge task of leading a startup to victory.

A leader must be flexible. Realistically, managing a startup will inevitably come to a point wherein consequences are not always favorable. As growing pains are normal in this type of business model, a leader must be able to bend himself as the unpredictable challenges come.

Humility is also essential in startup leadership. A true leader owns up to his mistakes and is generous with praise to his subordinates when the startup succeeds. A leader understands that they must be ready to provide support and motivation to their people, even if they do not get to enjoy the credit.

Proper leadership in the startup business is also characterized with decisiveness. The leader must make sound decisions for the company every day, and they must be quick to recognize windows of opportunity that will allow them to make decisions fast.

A good leader is also a visionary. However, a leader does not keep the vision to themselves. They must be able to encourage the people around them to make the dream their own so that each step toward success is motivated by an individual’s emotional investment. This can be quite an unstoppable force once it gets going.

It is not easy to have all of these qualities from the very start. However, leadership can be learned if one has the willingness to make himself better each day.

Facts and figures on oil in the US

It is a massive understatement to say that the oil industry in the United States is huge. Many Americans take it for granted, not knowing that almost everywhere they look, there is evidence of the oil industry. And this is how it’s been for the past few centuries. Historians, as well as leading authorities in business and economics, call oil the “mother of goods.” A majority of the commodities used by the human race such as fuel, soap, plastic and rubber shoes, could not have been made without oil. Let’s take a look at some of the amazing facts on the oil industry.

1. About 50% of the oil in the US is for transportation. 

2. The states of Louisiana, California, and Texas account for over half of the oil in the US. 

3. Texas leads all other states in producing oil. It has an astounding five billion barrels in reserves. 

4. A single barrel of oil amounts to approximately 42 gallons. Among these 42 gallons, 19 goes to gasoline, 9 to diesel, 4 to jet fuel, 1.75 to heating, while the remaining 7 gallons are allotted to other commodities like tar and asphalt. 

5. There are more than 200,000 miles of pipelines all over the country. 

6. The US uses up almost 20 million barrels of oil a day. This is the most for any country. They however rank 11th in total oil reserves in the world with 21 billion barrels. 

7. It’s absurd how the US uses 25% of the oil of the world, while Americans are only 4% of the world’s population.

The Rise Of Renewable Energy Sources In The Middle East

The renewable energy sector in the Middle East looks promising. Despite the decline in the oil and gas industry in the past few years, governments in the oil-rich region have taken a bold step by increasing their investment in alternative energy sources.

Countries in the region have established their respective green energy projects, which are seen to expand in the next years. An example of this massive project is the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park in the United Arab Emirates that will expand up to 3,000 megawatts. In a decade, this project will be responsible for 15% of the country’s demand for electricity.

On the other hand, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia will soon start the first phase of its renewable energy program that will need USD 30-50 billion. By 2025, the country aims to generate 10 gigawatts from solar and wind sources. And by 2030, the kingdom plans to generate 30% of its power from alternative energy sources. Neighboring countries such as Qatar, Kuwait, Oman, and Bahrain are also taking the necessary steps to enter the field of renewable energy.

As the global economy shifts its focus from traditional energy sources to renewable and sustainable alternatives, new projects seen to bring profit to participating countries in the decades to come have arisen. The Middle East has already entered the industry and once all the region’s initial efforts bear fruit, it will be set to reap the advantages as a bloc.
