Business

“People talk about businesses needing to be responsible as if it’s something new we need to do on top of everything else. But the whole essence of business should be responsibility. My philosophy is, ‘We don’t run companies to earn profits, we earn profits to run companies.’ Our companies need meaning and purpose if they’re to fit into the world, or why should they live at all?” ~ Tachi Kiuchi

“All organizations are perfectly aligned to get the results they get.” ~ Arthur W. Jones, Organizational design expert

“In my organizations I don’t have employees; I have teammates. Yes, I do pay people and offer them benefits. But people don’t work for me. They work with me. We are working together to fulfill the vision. Without them, I cannot succeed. Without me, they cannot succeed. We’re a team. We reach our goals together. We need each other. If we didn’t, then one of us is in the wrong place.” ~ John C. Maxwell, Leadership Gold

The Speed of Trust

By Stephen M. R. Covey

The Speed of Trust by Stephen M. R. CoveyBook Overview:  From Stephen R. Covey’s eldest son comes a revolutionary new path towards productivity and satisfaction. Trust, says Stephen M.R. Covey, is the very basis of the new global economy, and he shows how trust—and the speed at which it is established with clients, employees and constituents—is the essential ingredient for any high –performance, successful organization.

For business leaders and public figures in any arena, The Speed of Trust offers an unprecedented and eminently practical look at exactly how trust functions in our every transaction and relationship— from the most personal to the broadest, most indirect interaction —and how to establish trust immediately so that you and your organization can forego the time– killing, bureaucratic check–-and-–balance processes so often deployed in lieu of actual trust.

“If you hear my idea but don’t believe it, that’s not your fault; it’s mine. If you see my new product but don’t buy it, that’s my failure, not yours. If you attend my presentation and you’re bored, that’s my fault too.” ~ Seth Godin, Tribes

“Compensation is counterintuitive:  The more treasure you give away to those who serve well, the more treasure will return to you.  But few people perceive this simple truth.  Most try to keep as much as they can for themselves and give little away.  That’s why their purses refuse to fatten.” ~ Toyotomi Hideyoshi, The Swordless Samurai

“There are moments in our lives when we summon the courage to make choices that go against reason, against common sense and the wise counsel of people we trust. But we lean forward nonetheless because, despite all risks and rational argument, we believe that the path we are choosing is the right and best thing to do. We refuse to be bystanders, even if we do not know exactly where our actions will lead.” – Howard Schultz, CEO of Starbucks
