As leaders, we must remember that our teams look to us to set the standard. It’s just as important to celebrate characteristics, like joy, curiosity, humility, fortitude and gratitude, as well as deliverables, like results and metrics. Encourage both accomplishments and failure. These qualities help to nurture the essence of a team so employees feel more comfortable being themselves and can embrace their differences, creating a more functional and real culture. Just consider the success of companies that genuinely embrace these qualities—like Pixar, Southwest, Google.
