Looking forward to getting your take. Our company has a similar relaxed philosophy. We don’t exchange time for money. We focus on results: the work itself, not the time spent talking about it, fearing it, procrastinating it, or doing it. Cheers and keep truckin!
“Each time one of those things happens above, it’s my job as a manager to figure out how to make sure it doesn’t happen again.” — Yes! Managing like a community theatre director where everything is last minute and somehow we “pull it off” in the end may meet some people’s emotional needs, but when it’s the pattern, it’s tyranny. Thanks for this post. Well done.
