Paul Says

Good management is the art of making problems so interesting and their solutions so constructive that everyone wants to get to work and deal with them.

Paul Hawken, serial entrepreneur

Jeff Says

If you have a workforce that enjoys each other, they trust each other, they trust management, they're proud of where they work — then they're going to deliver a good product.

We Say

Good management doesn’t weigh the workplace down with rules and regulations. These are important, sure, but they shouldn’t create a barrier to fun and creativity. Take the thrill out of getting things done, and a work environment can become uninspiring.

Great things happen when like-minded people work on things they love. That’s why start-ups tend to be so much fun — everyone involved wants to be there. They love who they’re working with and they love what they’re doing. It’s important not to lose this as your company grows.
