    Hey, glad you enjoyed it! :)

    • Like I said in the post, everything I do is an experiment, and I made the team well aware of that. There wasn't much to lose, considering the worst case was stopping after a few weeks. Everyone was on board from the start and Goalfests are actually pretty enjoyable.
    • I've been blessed with an amazing team of people who genuinely care about each other and try to support each other. We aren't a competitive bunch. Goalfest start about 3 months ago and it's felt like a safe place so far. I can't promise that this'll be the case forever as we grow, but like I said if it doesn't work we'll just scrap it and try something else :)
    • I think stays fun through the way I treat my reports and the way they treat each other. There's a lot of respect, transparency, and caring. We have fun together regardless of the context. I can't say this is anything specific I do. Rather, it's the team I got #blessed

    Hope this helped!
