Reflecting on the aftermath of the Twitter layoffs.
You showcased both approaches beautifully; a hustler's culture and that of a "calm" individual. I also love how you didn't call one out in favor of the other, you're absolutely right! Each comes with its set of pros and cons.
And, as you said, the case of Twitter is one to be reflected on and taught; maybe even leverage how amazing companies like Doist does things, and Twitter & Tesla, to find the middle-ground between getting things done effectively all-the-while maintaining a team's mental health.
Thanks for this Luca!
The way you've distilled all the noise from this Twitter saga is just amazing Luca. Thanks and congrats 😁
Very insightful with significant lessons for CEOs/executive leadership (and board governance
) in diverse industries and smaller/mid-size businesses with robust growth potential. Thank you, Luca!
Loved how you broke this down into the two types of cultures.
"What kind of culture would we get if we were not allowed to cast doubt / criticism to any person who has achieved more than we did?"
You are talking about it. You are giving your opinion.
In what way do you feel you are not being allowed to cast criiticism? You ARE criticizing!
Why can't we just wait until the plot unfolds?
In the meanwhile, you are free to speak your mind and let's hope your thoughts will be insightful and interesting enough as to move me to to elicit a response.
Great article, Luca! I would like to see a follow-up to this now that one year has passed. You made a few predictions in the article, and It would be interesting to see how things turned up one year later.
Very thoughtful and reflective post
