What makes you anxious about work relationships?

“A great team has people that have different strengths, different weaknesses...if they trust each other, those differences truly are strengths that can be turned into creativity and innovation. If they don't trust each other, then you're not really a team, you're just a group of people working on a project.”

“When there's high trust you move fast with low cost. When there's low trust it takes you longer and costs you more.”

“Clearly you need to be trustworthy. That's the starting point. But you've got to also be trusting, you’ve got to be willing to extend that trust.”
