i'd like to suggest one modification related to your points 4, 5 and 7: actively help your high performers grow.

as an early-stage company scales, founding CEOs may receive the advice to replace early employees with experienced managers. however, this doesn't give the early employee an opportunity to advance her skillset and grow into an experienced manager.

accordingly, one option for CEOs is to proactively recruit executive coaches and mentors to help the early employee develop into an experienced manager. i believe this approach results in a stronger team and culture.
