Who versus What is Right - by Ravi Patel

 

In entrepreneurial companies doing the right things is critical for growth. In general, who is right should not matter as much as doing what is right.

 

How does this actually work in practice?

 

If the Entrepreneur has created a culture of favoritism and is partial to employees whom he/she likes, then who is right will take precedence. Employees will try to prove they are right to win favors with the Entrepreneur and might even try to put others down. Not a healthy environment!

 

On the other hand, if the Entrepreneur has established a culture of teamwork and continuous improvement, then what is right will prevail. There will be more emphasis on doing the right things for the company rather than establishing who is right. In this case it becomes a win-win situation!

 

What would you rather have?
