Nothing is scarier than letting your team down or making your boss look bad. We as human beings are inclined to avoid taking risk out of fear that we'll fail; not many people actually want to be reprimanded for taking a calculated risk that failed! But as John Wooden famously said "Failure isn't fatal, but failure to change might be" and we absolutely agree with him.Be Fearless
At MKG one of our five values is “Fearless”. It gives all employees - especially strategists in a support role with our experts - the freedom to learn through continuous constructive feedback.
We are not sink or swim with no support.
We are learn and grow.
