if our community was pixar….

oft of an evening, I read the Harvard Buisness Review, this one is from september 2008. Contained within it is a great article from Ed Catmull, Pixar Studio President, called, “How Pixar fosters Creative community.” As part of the article, he outlines some of the Pixar communities shared beliefs;
– Talent is Rare
– Management’s job is not to prevent risk but to build the capacity to to recover when failures occur.
– It must be safe to tell the truth.

it sounds pretty awesome but i wonder how well each of these would change into some of the communities i live and work in.

but it was the statement directly after these beliefs which caught me.
– We must constantly challenge all of our assumptions and search for the flaws that could destroy our culture.

how, what, hi. [puzzled but curious face]

Love it, but could this apply to the communities i am a part of.
i wonder how this could work within a church community?
(sounds as unlike general assembly as anything could be.)
my wanderings are under formed but are wondering.
