About this Talk

KPI driven rat race, living the life of - effectively - your investor’s whore, burnout, significant churn as your people realise they’re not ready to sacrifice personal lives to keep meeting targets... It used to be the expected way for an ambitious startup to get off the ground and eventually succeed. Not any more. There is a different way, a way of balancing profitability with investment in people and wellbeing. A way of structuring your company which means people are respected, trusted, and act from a place of power (not fear), while also being very clear about their accountabilities.
