In great cultures people “work well together”. Working well together means thinking well together, means making smart decisions, means nimbleness, resilience, precision, an orientation to the future. Is creating a great culture easy? No, it’s hard. But not as hard as continuing to grind through days characterized by mediocre performance and morale. Is it worth the effort? If you’ve ever been part of a great team—in sports, at school or work—then you know it is. All boats rise on that tide.
