What is the Danger of the Yes Man?


What leader doesn't want to hear a "yes"? We all love affirmation.

But the danger of working with people who constantly agree with you and approve of your plans is that it can drive your business down the wrong path.

We brought together five Los Angeles entrepreneurs from various industries to share their thoughts and advice on why it's important to find people to join your team who care enough to say, "No, don't do that."

Participants include: Reginald Hudlin, CEO of Hudlin Entertainment; Jennifer Houston, managing partner at Makai; Kim Watson, president and co-founder of Groupie Inc.; Mike Cano, CEO of Latino Digital Solutions; and Allison Samuels, author and journalist.
