[2:38] Be a Ferrari, it's freeing people to go, less meetings, less checking in, but still in a healthy way for the business.

[6:49] The way to improve your meeting starts before the meeting, getting more clarity of structure.

[13:18] There's a discipline about using the specific things we run into to clarify the process and the structure, and it's the same thing we want in a management hierarchy, that's what a good manager does, use the questions people have to generate clear goals and give people freedom to lead within that.

[21:16] You can see our entire governance structure on our website, we are a company not using management hierarchy, but a structure that emerges from every team learning together and engaging in a process together defining how that team works.

[28:27] Every company is going to have their own creative solution to fire people.

[35:37] This is what happens when you don't have the simple answer available, and when you have a governance process where you can experiment.

[40:22] I can't image a better spiritual practice than constantly noticing what's happening in my consciousness, what tension I'm feeling in my body.
