On the role of a leader


I learned from Tim Brown and IDEO that a leader’s role is not to always have the answer, but to create the conditions for things to happen.

Organizations like IDEO, Pixar, and Airbnb aren’t assuming a work style just because other systems work that way. They find their own style, grow a culture, and leadership helps that culture to thrive. IDEO teaches how to instill purpose, motivate, inspire, and encourage people to think beyond their ‘job.’
