“if you give a good idea to a mediocre team, they will screw it up. If you give a mediocre idea to a brilliant team, they will either fix it or throw it away and come up with something better.”
Love this from Pixar co-founder, Ed Catmull. Always been my experience with the multitude of mediocre ideas I gave to brilliant teams. Also why it’s so important to get the team right.
Fascinating book as well on the story of Pixar, full of the realities of building, making mistakes, and leading. If you buy it here, 10% goes to a local bookshop, and 10% into our fund for microloans to women business owners in the developing world.
