Discussion on: Supervisors Driven By Bottom Line Instead of Focusing Employee Well-Being Perform Worse (Study)

I really find the idea of having a "supervisor" within a successful company is kinda exotic.

Cuz before you hire your employees, you should be trusting what they'll do.

And, the weekly or monthly KPIs of your business would be your best friend (telling you when things are going wrong).

I'd like to quote this from the CEO of Weebly:

Often, the first time I find out about a product feature is reading about it on our blog. It shocks most founders to hear this, but I know I’ve done my job well

This quote is awesome!

I'm in the process of writing an article about my transition back into academia, and one of the things I hated about industry was being micromanaged. If I were to ever run my own company, this quote sums up exactly how I'd want it to run. In fact, it's how I run a lot of my open-source projects. I let people just sort of take it and run!
