Work With Passionate People
Work with people who hold your passion.
What I just said holds true. Simply because others have your passion does not necessarily make them competition. Instead, they can be allies to help you along the way as likewise, you help them along the way.
If you work with people who share the same passion, but display a separate skill set, you may have a win/win situation. This is a prime example of seizing business success! No successful company in the history of the world has ever had a group of individuals running around chasing different passions. There’s no flow. People with one goal though who all bring a unique specialty working in unison as a well-oiled have a better than average chance of business success.
When leading any organization, understanding your people is like understanding you’ll Woo! Yeah, that is deep. Remember your company is a direct reflection of you. How you turn your passion into reality is unique to you. Without understanding your employees and customers/clients, you may be missing a disruption of your flow. By having an open door policy you may be reducing this flow and keeping constant your flow.
When someone shares an idea, no idea is a bad idea. Keep this in mind.
It may appear ludicrous now, but ruling it out completely may burn you later. This idea may seize business success down the road.
Your company should be unique to you and a direct reflection of who you are. It should express a culture in itself. Make your people an important part of this culture. Let them see it, feel it, and be this culture. Employees will take pride in their work and customers will display confidence in your product or service.
Issues within your corporate climate may arise. Work through them. Families grow closer when you work through issues that may arise. In a way, the people you have surrounded yourself with, flowing with you, sharing your passion, are like a family. Embrace this. A good team becomes great when they overcome diversity together and achieve positive results.
Allow people to challenge you. Step out of your comfort box. Think out of your box of normal. Turn your passion to reality. Seize business success. Achieve greatness. Be great.
