"If your goal is to win the Championship you may want to step back and look at what is really important to you team. Chances are if you were to win that championship right now your team wouldn’t be all that excited because of what they would have to go through to get there. But by reassessing our talent level we can build a team that finds more accomplishment in working together as a team than winning the actual Championship. Ultimately this team will go on to do greater things than you could ever believe."/understanding-how-your-talent-affects-your-culture.html
I really love this article from Fast Company. Too often we think of progressive work cultures as having a lot of extra frills that promote creativity and exploration. What we fail to see is that the important thing about these cultures is not the foosball table but instead what the idea of the foosball table means to the culture. That foosball table let's employees know that it is ok to explore and have fun. Cultures that make their employees feel at ease and feel as though they can have fun and explore are the ones that employees want to work for and the cultures that produce exceptional experiences for their consumers.
