Without emotional attachment to the past, Revolutionaries are quick to abandon strategies, jobs, relationships, and habits that hinder growth.
These cultures encourage risk-taking and re-invention. Teams take stock quickly and unemotionally; they come to closure decisively and move on.
When Revolutionary slips into the shadow side, they can be experienced as dramatic and mean & unfeeling—mechanistically using people, then discarding them. They can take unnecessary risks and, in extreme cases, risks can descend into breaking the law.
