      I'd never make it in this environment, I love work-life balance too much. Even now that I'm retired from IT, I try not to get too deep into my, as my wife calls it, no-brain retirement job, instead paying time to my family and hobbies.

        Also, way to scout this one from right underneath me. 😜 Last night, I was like, “vunderkind doesn’t want to self-scout? Ok, I’ll take the scout points!” Lol

        Upvote. At least you are taking the time to consider how you spend your time and attention. You can sleep well knowing you’re not on autopilot. That’s 90% of the problem for many people.

      Subjectively, however, it is the perfect set-up for a CEO’s neurosis, narcissism and downright psychopathy to be dispersed rapidly down a chain. When startups like these have a ‘culture,’ it’s usually slanguage for a homogeneous collection of people acting and behaving along a narrow range of attributes that please one person only — the founder/CEO.

      Brilliant! And true. So how does a CEO who wants to not let this happen think about onboarding the first half-dozen employees?

      In other words, is there a positive inverse of this phenomenon where the CEO can proliferate real, no-BS positivity that proliferates across the team?

      The opposite of Groupthink is a healthy family/community with a broad range of opinions where everyone feels empowered, and purposeful.
