Keeping a Fresh Perspective

DJ Kleinbaum, Emerald Therapeutics

Emerald Therapeutics Co-Founder DJ Kleinbaum describes an exercise that allows his company to constantly re-examine its operations and culture, where all new employees are asked to keep a journal and write down their initial impressions of anything unusual. They are then asked to turn to coworkers with more tenure for an explanation, and possibly suggest solutions.
