Ep.150: Building a Team, Not a Family with Jef Forward
While having a family-like culture is a well intended premise, it is oftentimes impractical. Companies may notice that one or two employees are intolerant of the family-like culture in place, and leave the “family” dysfunctional. Creating an environment where there is a structure that resembles a team, rather than a family, is a way to avoid intolerance, and grow as a company.
