The same principle goes to managing a team.

“You indicate structure, but within that structure, there must be creativity, responsibility. The more freedom, the greater the responsibility must be.”

“You can and must be creative and inspiring. But every team needs structure. Automatisms. It takes a lot of time to get it in.”
