How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I am currently working with a founder. Main requirement (beyond intelligence and domain knowledge) is trust.

As an Advisor

Take time to understand the landscape - No snap judgements. Careful not to put things into "my boxes" and background. Need to understand the true values and expertise of existing company. Spend time understanding customer motivation(s).
See if team is aligned, both internally and externally.
