Neuroeconomist Paul Zak in HBR reports that high organizational performance is a function of engagement. Engagement is a function of trust. Trust is a function of freedom in our work, recognition of progress and continous growth.
Nimble teams know this because we daily live it. In sync with the rest of the team and without permissions, everyone has freedom to do their best in whatever needs to be done. We define together the good we seek in all we do and move towards it in iterations of progress. We are always working from growing questions, expanding clarity in new ways.
Trust builds in this kind of culture. We enjoy high levels of performance.
