According to Mr. Parsons, the most important thing when building a business is partnering with the right folks – those that are complementary to you and are your “kind of folks.” If they are not your kind of folks or you don’t feed off each other, then work becomes a drag.
He then highlights the importance of focusing on setting the right “culture tone” – i.e. remind your team of the culture you are building and don’t just take charge, do what is right.
Mr. Parsons reminds us that a concerted effort far outweighs individual ones and that it is important to surround yourself with a great team of those that think with reason.
That’s it for our newest series, “An Interview with Richard Parsons”!
