Quotes

5:37“If on Monday you are excited to go in but by Tuesday afternoon you’re exhausted because you’ve been firefighting for 36 hours, you have total control, but where the heck are you going with the activity? Where are you going with the decisions you’re making?”
9:54“I think our culture tells us that speed is one of the greatest value propositions ever. My experience tells me it’s one of the most dangerous. Moving fast ultimately has us go slow because we end up getting in the weeds. We end up making hasty, wrong decisions. We slow down to speed up - that actually works.”
18:53“Email and text is not communication; it’s just information dissemination. I want to know the context of what’s being communicated. That’s where clear and communicated expectations happens.”
37:47“Define your culture by distinguishing those core values. Map out the functional blueprint of your organization as if it were an automobile with components.”
