Every organization is a product of how its leaders think and interact. High performing leaders create environments where teams focus on opportunity through creativity and innovation, seek out great ideas, and execute great strategies.

For this to happen, it is essential that the leader provides safety and trust for the employees to push the edge and take risks. Only when the employee knows the leader cares and stands behind them, can the defences in the brain shut down thereby allowing members of the team to really Play to Win. A defensive mindset produces fear and holding back resulting in Playing Not to Lose.
