Can't have too many quotes from the "Untouchables." I don't talk much about my work here, that's not really the point of this blog. But one element I'm a big believer in is collaboration and teamwork. In politics too often being part of a team is seen as less important than leading the team or getting the credit. I believe that good collaboration and teamwork always produce a better product and make for a better work environment. Being a good teammate, a good collaborator is as important a skill as being a good leader.
I wanted to link to this video by Randy Nelson, Dean of Pixar University talking about the importance of collaboration and Pixar. I've always admired Pixar, not just for the quality of their work, but for the values and process they represent in creating that work. They seem to really embody the "No Asshole Rule," that I've tried to follow in my business, but too often is forgotten in politics (and entertainment).
