Nothing significant happens when you’re working alone. If you want to do anything big, you’re going to need a powerhouse team.
Return podcast guest Mike Michalowicz founded and sold two multi-million dollar businesses by his 35th birthday. He is the bestselling author of Profit First, The Pumpkin Plan, Clockwork, and Fix This Next. He has built two additional multimillion-dollar companies and has become one of the world’s most popular speakers on small business topics. His new book is All In: How Great Leaders Build Unstoppable Teams.
The vision you may have for your business is not necessarily the same vision for the entirety of your team. Leaders often work in their own self-interest, but powerful leaders work to help their team realize their dreams as well. As you as a leader prioritize their vision, they will begin to prioritize the vision of the company.
What do your people want? Why should they perform to the best of their ability? Effective leaders prioritize recognition, create traditions in the workplace, and foster a workplace culture that celebrates the dreams and accomplishments of every team member.
Mike wants leaders to treat people as human beings rather than human resources. He highlights the transformation that the right captain was able to inspire on the worst-performing ship in the Navy. It takes a team to be successful, and that team needs 100% commitment from every single member. When the team is all in, the success is unstoppable.
