King Kong CEO:
- rips his employees for mistakes
- confines them to roles within strict boundaries
- treats them like cost items on a balance sheet
- scared employees
- uncreative employees
- unproductive employees
King Kong CEO creates a political culture where employees hate the environment, the work, and the CEO.
It's the typical horribly-$#@-managed company.
Business Management = Not Hard
Managing a business is like being a good parent.
A kid grows up in an environment where:
- wins are cherished
- challenges are big but beatable
- and mistakes are quickly forgotten
That kid becomes more self-assertive and becomes more confident in his/her abilities.
Likewise, employees who grow in a nurturing environment:
- take more initiative
- take more risks
- produce more output
The nurturing environment:
- values every contribution
- understands precisely their members' goals and weaknesses
- knows what motivates each team member to excel
- makes every one of their employees self-sufficient to do what's necessary
Employee Eddie starts getting into the productively-good habits -- as his company builds a nurturing environment where he and his fellow team members can succeed and thrive.
Innovative companies involve every single one of their team members continuously innovating every aspect of the company -- from hiring new team members to acting on customer feedback to building new products.
Cultivate a ridiculously nurturing environment to help your company's team members take initiative, innovate, and improve your company by X multiple.
