I have noticed in the past year that a lot of people I speak with in corporate jobs are not having a lot of fun. Too many pressures and endless deadlines. Too many hours or wasted time on what appear to be useless activities. I have also noticed that there are those in the corporate world and business owners who are creating new products, are creating opportunities and having good success in their business.
A big part of that success is the attitude they take to work each day. They have a belief that they can make a difference. They know what they want to accomplish and they have a good team around them.
So what are the three things they do differently than the majority?
One; they have a very clear plan. It is written in great detail and shared with their team. They all know what it is they are going to a achieve. There are no hidden agendas and the goals are achieved as a team.
They hold their team accountable; however, they give them the attitude and freedom to do their job. They provide advice and guidance. They create an environment where the team can be successful. They typically are humble about their success. That does not mean they are casual about the success.
They are great Leaders. We struggle in business today to find great leaders. They never give up. They constantly reinforce the vision and goals of the organization. They celebrate the teams success and and take responsibility for all the problems and issues that arise. They make the tough decisions and they do what is right for the business and right for their people.
