"Disagree and commit"

After a long internal debate on a controversial issue, Bill would make sure we all had the chance to share our point of view with the rest of the team. But once a final decision had been made, that was it…no second-guessing or Monday morning quarterbacking. The best business teams I’ve been on follow this mantra faithfully -- and the worst ones violate it on a regular basis.
