POINT OF VIEW
Successful companies are built by great teams. Great teams are usually made up of folks with complementary skill sets and diverse backgrounds. Most importantly, they need to feel safe to play to win vs. playing it safe and avoiding a loss. I like the expression, “if you’re not crashing, you’re not racing” but that’s easier said than done in most organizations, and on most teams. People don’t like to fail; fear of failure is ironically a success prophylactic for teams and organizations. Great leadership creates the safety necessary for aggressive mistakes, failing fast, learning and moving forward toward success.
