Chapter 1 Celebrate Autonomy


Slide 5

Autonomy begins during the first conversation you have with a new team member. At Clover, Kris asks, “Now that you understand what we are trying to accomplish, you tell me. What should you be doing every day?” Team members are then asked to study the organization and come back with recommendations.


Slide 6

Encourage individuals to shape their roles and collaborate with others to improve your product or service.


Slide 7

“Don’t delegate tasks or disempower people through participation in the early days… They need to be empowered to make operational changes in the code.”


Slide 8

“Never stomp on autonomy.”


Slide 9

Remember: Promoting autonomy doesn’t indicate a lack of leadership. Leaders who master sustainable growth are obsessed with constantly repeating the company’s mission and working closely with each team member to help them grow personally and professionally.


Slide 10

“Never stop preaching why you are here, and what your mission is. Say it again, and again and again: ‘Here’s where we are. This is the progress we need to make.’”


Slide 11

When meeting new colleagues, or evaluating potential ones, your team members should be able to proudly declare: “This is what it’s like to work here. This is why our mission matters. This is my part in it.”


Slide 12

Repetition is especially important for hyper-growth startups that are adding team members weekly. In addition to the founders sharing the mission, team members should be billboards of your company values.

Chapter 2 Execute Like Champs


Slide 14

Assemble small groups to execute projects. This will decrease overhead, coordination, and management.


Slide 15

Make it a habit for engineers, designers, and product managers to go into the field with your team. Based on their observations, encourage them to build MVPs to test a new feature with a few on the ground employees. These experiments should be executed at the most basic level before being built in your software.


Slide 16

Remember these three points before formally implementing a new feature:

Slide 18

Remember these three points before formally implementing a new feature: Create a basic version that works


Slide 19

Remember these three points before formally implementing a new feature: Build only what is necessary


Slide 20

Don’t measure engineers on how well they build software. Measure them on well they build software that achieves your company’s goals.


Slide 21

“If there is a non-flashy, less glamorous way to get there faster we should be celebrating that; Not celebrating things that demo well, or seem technically impressive.”


Slide 22

“Part of the Clover hypothesis is that our protocol is going to be a cumulative result of a lot of little things that add up and are really impactful together. It needs to be a forcing function of the organization that we keep batch sizes small for things we want to roll out so they can be operationalized and tested. The hypotheses need to be confirmed or disconfirmed by a really small group of leaders.”

“It forces individuals to conceptualize what they are doing and enhances their prioritization.”


Slide 30

The presentations are done with a microphone to cultivate formal public speaking and presentation skills. These habits enable team members to grow in their roles, excel in the organization, and shape the future leadership team.


Slide 31

“People are better at their jobs when they are asking: ‘How does this fit in the bigger picture?’”


Slide 32

Slide 33
