Of Puppies and Men

By now most of you have heard about GoDaddy's #Puppygate controversy this week. It was quite something to experience from inside, and see how the right culture can make a huge difference in how you react to mistakes. In fact, it was quite a throwback to an older blog post I had made on this very same topic. So, instead of finger pointing and rolling heads, the GoDaddy team listened, regrouped, and decided on a set of constructive next steps starting with a statement by our CEO Blake Irving within hours on the same day. 

Also, I am personally happy that in the process, many people who didn't know much about the plight of some puppies got a much better understanding of the realities involved with breeding as pointed out by this animal advocate on Huffington Post

Now let's see what tomorrow has in store for Superbowl and its advertisers! 

May the nimblest team with the right culture towards mistakes and experimentation win!!!
