I recently began working with two longtime friends on a startup, and we are hitting a wall when attempting to progress on anything.
We all possess fairly similar skills, so we can each handle any possible aspect of our startup. Everybody seems to want to handle the same "fun" aspects while neglecting the tedious bits. We are wasting weeks just trying to figure out who handles what..
So, we've been tossing around the idea of one of us becoming the "boss" and having delegation rights to make our group run more efficiently.
My question is : when you have a team of equally skilled people what factors can you use to determine who should lead the rest? (All of us have fairly equal managerial experience, even..)
