Dalla storia dei Pink Floyd 4 insegnamenti per il proprio team


Il libro racconta la storia di una band che ha realizzato alcuni tra gli album più venduti al mondo, è una storia di creatività, innovazione e  successo imprenditoriale.

Riporto il link a questo post Four Non-Obvious Things Pink Floyd Can Teach Your Team e qualche  riga  di assaggio.




Hiring Based on "Team Fit" is Over-Rated

"personality fit" isn't always a requirement—though obviously it sure helps. The ability to get the job done is what matters. Barrett was let go only after he made it clear he could no longer contribute to the team's success.
"Dark Side of the Moon contains the best songs the Floyd have ever written," Wright told writer Carol Clerk. "Even though I wasn't great friends with Roger, there was a great working relationship. To this day, I think it's sad we lost it."





Creative Teams Use Limitations and Frustrations to Greater Creative Purpose

Pink Floyd songwriters transformed their shared painful experiences—not the least of which was references to Syd Barrett on Wish You Were Here—into art.
The difference between effective teams where people don't necessarily get along and those that fall apart—or at least this team—is how the individuals turn their experiences (past and present) into the creative work
.




Expect Creative People To Push Themselves and Others—Sometimes Too Hard

In 1969, Waters said, "I took responsibility in the Floyd because nobody else seemed to want to do it. I know I can be an oppressive personality because I bubble with ideas and schemes, and in a way it was easier for the others to go along with me."
Creative people aren't always compassionate in demanding the best of others. When Gilmour called Waters to ask for help with the lyrics to "The Narrow Way," Waters said, "Do it yourself" and hung up the phone. "Which was probably his way of helping me find my feet. It sort of makes me cringe now"





Don't Let the Technology Get in the Way

The band's mammoth sound and lighting equipment regularly overloaded the power source. The hardware, at times, overwhelmed the music and limited what the band could do.
Teams that get along well, sometimes too well, can fail to challenge one another to scale new heights.
When a team of creative people all buys into that goal, it's sometimes best to let them work on their own to achieve it.
