Summary: High performers feel the fear, but don’t let it keep them from doing what they want to, have to, or designed to do.  They know it’s natural to have negativity – but they are aware of it and talk back to build their confidence.

“A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.” Albert Einstein

In a study published in the New York Times, Google studied 180 teams, conduct 200-plus interviews, and analyze over 250 different team attributes.
