I’m so glad you made this mistake.

Larry Page said [via Google Blogoscoped]:

“I’m so glad you made this mistake. Because I want to run a company where we are moving too quickly and doing too much, not being too cautious and doing too little. If we don’t have any of these mistakes, we’re just not taking enough risk.”

Terry Semel and Yahoo! are also encouraging risk taking. Can’t immediately find a good quote online.

What does it take for employees to act accordingly?
