The 52 | 06: The Virgin Way by Sir Richard Branson
Here's a contradictory thought. If it’s not fun its not worth doing. A bold line from Sir Richard Branson. The Virgin Way is a light hearted, go getter team culture, that focuses on the power of we. Tearing down the walls and sielos of Corporate America and replace them with a can do attitude and open space. This shift in attitude allows for massive creativity, unadulterated teamwork, and unwavering ownership. Richard believes that in order to get the most out of his employees, an open door policy is the only way. Opting for less traditional methods to ensure the collaboration of his team on all fronts.
