Episode 53 - Asking for Forgiveness Instead of Permission

June 11, 2018
One of the badass leadership principles is Ask for Forgiveness, not for Permission.   That scares a lot of people.  So how do you really integrate that into your badass life and practice?



  • You never want to be reckless or insubordinate, but you definitely want to encourage your teams to own solutions and decisions

  • I believe it is as reckless to hold up product with desire for certainty - sign offs, consensus, approvals

  • Just make sure you have general vision and direction from leadership/product ownership

  • You’ll need to be courageous at first, but it becomes second nature

  • You will have to be prepared to protect your team and back up their decisions.
