WATER COOLER WISDOM
Lead with Passion, Humility & Love.
A “good” decision should make all the stakeholders unhappy because no individual or group got all they wanted.
Everyone must get advice before making a decision. If you don’t seek advice, “you’re fired.”
Put other stakeholders (shareholders, customers, suppliers, etc) equal to or above yourself.
Principles and values must guide all decisions.
Fairness means treating everybody differently.
Eliminate management, organization charts, job descriptions, and hourly wages.
Attempt to create the most fun workplace in the history of the world.
The purpose of business is not to maximize profits for shareholders but to steward our resources to serve the world in an economically sustainable way.
When given the opportunity to use our ability to reason, make decisions, and take responsibility for our actions, we experience joy at work.
