Path to Excellence
From Tom Peters:
“Want to learn about Excellence? Forget the Fortune 100. Find five great companies with less than 50 employees near you. Make friends. Sponge up ideas.”
From my experience this is one leg of a triangle for leading a business/organization….the other two….leveraging experience and learning from the best business thinkers.
In our business, we were always ready to try new ideas….whether our own or others. I visited competitor’s and was well attuned to what others were doing throughout the industry.
The real test for some businesses is the willingness to listen and take advice. No matter how successful a business or organization there are always ways to be better and different.
