I’ve been inching through Jim Collins’ book From Good to Great over the last few months. There’s some really good stuff in it about how to get a successful company over the hump to be truly special.
In the last chapter I read, Collins pointed out three observations that most great companies make regarding their personnel:
1. Don’t hire simply to hire. Instead, wait for the right people to hire the best.
2. When change in personnel is needed, do it – don’t wait.
3. Put the best employees on the biggest challenges
I find Collins’ book to be nothing revolutionary but instead a remarkable and motivating reminder of how to be successful. These points are no exception to that. As I grow into a stronger leader and manager, I’m reminded to focus on my bright spots to make them brighter and to empower my employees’ passion, skills, and desire to impact our business on a more profound level. Thanks Jim Collins.
