The big question here is, what is right environment? The right environment is one that promotes an individual’s growth. It is one that encourages performance and rewards it too. It is one that focuses on objectives and not just on the processes that were set to achieve that objective. This environment has to encourage people to try new things without the undue stress of the consequences of failing. It also needs to involve the individual and recognise his contribution towards the overall goal. This environment addresses the WHY before the WHAT and the HOW!
The even bigger question is how do you enable such an environment?
