Giving someone the chance to fly on the runway and create the flight path themselves as they go is really something special.
It's trusting them. It's giving them the belief and freedom to make changes and decisions—to take off from the runway and say, "Let's fly over here." "What if we upgraded to this plane?" "No one's done this before. Based on my assertions, I recommend we test it." "And, what if we invite these people to join us?"
Taking a chance on someone and giving them the opportunity to soar is a gift that can completely change them professionally and personally. The opportunity to work with someone who's eager to be a pilot for your airline, who will step up and lead is also something special.
