The NEW! Leadership plays: 5. Improve, don't prove

Intent Based Leadership, leadership, David Marquet

Improve is a specific play as well as the objective of the redwork-bluework operating system.

Improve is about reflecting on what we’ve done and making it one better. Improve pits the “get better” self against the “be good” self. The desire of the “be good” self to defend itself will crowd out efforts to get better. In order to open ourselves for improvement we need to tame the fears of the “be good” self.

Improve happens through collaboration. The output of the improve play is the next hypothesis to test. Improve sets us up to commit and launches us back into redwork.
