Dan Street Discusses the Pros and Cons of Opposing Work Cultures

CEO Dan Street discusses the pros and cons of opposing work cultures by comparing competitive and collaborative work corporate environments. While Street believes that both can coexist, he recognizes that most companies will sway to either one or the other.

Street states the benefits of competitive environments by exploring how they force one's full involvement, urging them to be their best and ultimately making them proud of their accomplishments. Competitive CEOs hire competitive employees meaning that one is always surrounded by the best of the best. Despite of these positives, Street explains that wins always come with an equal amount of losses and that one's best is often not good enough.

In the case of collaborative work environments, workers feel a sense of comradery and are often in agreement of their ideas. Though this is positive, these individuals often lack the ability for extreme innovation because of a lack of creative tension. Stats for Competitive Vs. Collaborative Trending: Older & Chilly
