"If no one monitors their work timing and the quality of their work closely enough why will they take their work seriously?"
An acquaintance asks when I am talking about the team I work with, our no policing work culture.
If you want to build great teams ask the right questions.
Why will they take their work seriously, is a wrong question. Why won't they, is the right question.
When you ask the wrong questions you get policies. When you ask the right ones, it becomes easier to trust people and you get innovative life styles with kick ass work cultures.
Before you ask a question, ask yourself if you are asking the right question.
Pick your questions carefully, for they decide your lifestyle and the answers that you eventually find.
