Management: Strategizing With the Team

The New York Times, Sunday, February 12, 2012


In an interview with Mr. Bryant about corporate leadership qualities, “Tim Bucher, founder and C.E.O. of, a wine site says he takes his team to weekly dinners, as it’s hard to discuss the big picture amid distractions at the office.”  

Mr. Bucher also says one has to communicate the vision.  “You have to show the team where you’re going…you’ve got to pull the whole organization in the right direction…In a start-up, everyone is pulling on the same oars.”

Perhaps Mr. Bucher was part of a crew in high school or college, as he wants his team to row together, pulling on the same oars, hoping they will win the race.
