|Overview:||Criterion has been having considerable success building a hyper-engaged team by maximizing autonomy, mastery and purpose. Along the way the Criterion team has abandoned traditional, "command and control" leadership that tends to involve investing power into a few people at the "top of the organization pyramid", and instead has developed their own version of servant leadership. This talk summarizes the Criterion philosophy and how it is applied to maximize "autonomy, mastery and purpose", then focuses on the qualities and habits producers need to aspire to acquire to successfully lead in such an environment.|
