Motivation & Management

Autonomy

Give people the tools and resources they need and get out of the way. Freedom. People like to be self-directed.

Mastery

People like to get better at stuff, being challenged and making a contribution.

Purpose

Vision attracts talent. People are purpose-driven.

Reward

Pay people enough to get the money issue off the table.

Meetings

Do not judge someone's effectiveness by their participation.

Cross Pollination

Many discoveries are made by talking to people on other teams.

Decisions

Important decisions happen when they need to happen, not necessarily on a schedule. Eg. hallways, outside of team meetings.
