Sergey Brin and Larry Page, the two co-founders of Google, drew on their mathematical brilliance to create the innovative algorithm behind Google's search engine.

To guide the company during initial growth and development, for example, they selected an experienced business leader, Eric Schmidt, as chief executive officer, or CEO (Larry Page just recently took over the CEO position from Eric Schmidt). Like Brin and Page, the newly appointed CEO valued open emotional expression. Together, the trio created an emotionally supportive culture that encourages employees to express who they are as individuals while engaging in creative, innovative behavior.
