I know I have been linking to Cuban a lot since he started his blog. I really like his latest post on business and passion.
The best team I ever worked on understood what Cuban is getting at. We would put ourselves into a conference room, close the door, and often scream and yell at each other as we worked out project details. After the meeting, we would all go out to lunch and life would go on.
It was tough because everyone needed to be in the same place for it to work. It required a lot of trust built over time. Team members had to understand it wasn’t personal. The primary objective was to come to the best solution for our customers.
It worked for us.
