Posted by Nicki Peasley Share Your Voice


In this Fortune Management article, Lululemon CEO Christine Day shares the secret of her organization's success.  This company is truly living it's mission from the inside out and  "elevating the world from mediocrity to greatness." 

Day shares that trust between management and employees is the key.  Here's her recipe for success:

  • Let staffers do their job. (Empower employees to make decisions; they know their target audience and community best).
  • Find the magic makers. (Hire those who "take responsibility, take risks, and have an entrepreneural spirit.")
  • Allow people to own their own mistakes. ("if you screw up, you clean up.")
  • Take charge in crisis. (Day says, "If I can trust that my employees will be there for me, they need to trust that I'm there for them.")
