“Well one thing I wish someone had told me at our last company, which was a very high growth company, was to allow people to fail. Back in those days, I didn’t want to allow for a single bad business decision. Quite often, it turns out to be non-collaborative. The learning experience people get from failure has a tremendous impact normally on their careers and on future decisions. I wish someone would’ve told me that; that’s the one thing.” — Bob RossAB
