In his book, Creativity, Inc., Pixar Animation Studio co-founder Ed Catmull said, “I believe that managers must loosen the controls, not tighten them. They must accept risk; they must trust the people they work with and strive to clear the path for them; and always, they must pay attention to and engage with anything that creates fear.”
Clearing the path for employees can start with investing in a truly collaborative tool like the Google Jamboard. Built for collaboration and designed with users in mind, the Jamboard is more than just a beautifully designed digital whiteboard. The Jamboard is integrated with G Suite, allowing teams to use their digital assets directly on the board. Distributed teams can literally stay on the same page regardless of where they are in the world. While on-site teams work on the Jamboard, remote participants can stay fully engaged using their desktop or mobile devices. Its intuitive design eliminates any required training, saving on time and resources. It also doesn’t hurt that the Jamboard is fun to use, so employees are more likely to enjoy doing their jobs while helping the business succeed.
