Say what you think

“I constantly make sure we’ve created an environment that encourages people on the team to really say what they think, to get their ideas out on the table and to give them an opportunity to argue those perspectives and make sure they’re not holding them inside . . . .   That’s something I’m constantly working on — how can I create that environment, how can I ask the right questions, and how do I go around and make sure people tell you what they really think?  That takes patience, but it’s the right thing to do.”  John W. Rogers, Jr., Chairman, CEO and chief investment officer of Ariel Investments, based in Chicago
