Dear Nettie

I continue to reinforce that relationships are the key to success …and that definition of success extends to WOW! transformations clients, colleagues, peers and friends. Strong relationships happen in many ways, and one important element is when you become a trusted advisor to a client, colleague or peer. That means going the extra mile, doing more than what you are expected to do, and extending the relationship beyond the walls of the company or organization into other areas of your life.

I don’t compartmentalize my relationships. For me it’s about the broader opportunities to get to know someone, connecting various people because you know something great will come of it, and seeking relationships in unlikely places. I am proud to say that many a colleague has become a friend, a networking companion and traveled with me into others areas of my life.

The email below serves as a reminder to the impact one can make in an organization and beyond. I worked with Andrew for eight years at Solvay and call him a client, a trusted advisor, and a friend.

Dear Nettie

MDS is what it is today largely through your amazing efforts over these past 8 years. From the first meeting we had to conceptualize the concepts through the expansion to Europe all the way up to present day.  I am in Shanghai today and so is MDS. When I traveled to Brazil MDS was there as well and now it is even available in French as well as Portuguese and Mandarin.

More than just fond memories I hope you also take with you the knowledge that hundreds of Solvay managers are using skills today that are a direct result of MDS and your efforts.

For me it is not good-bye as I know we will work together again. Thanks for all that you have done and all that I don’t even realize you have done!

Fondly,  Andrew

Being Wildly Successful

Tuesday, July 15th, 2014

 

By Guest Writer:  Stu Danforth, Positive Leadership Dynamics

It’s a simple idea that drives companies to wild success.  Wildly successful companies - those with sky-high productivity, giant profits, and singular product and service quality – show a relentless focus on one element of their organizational strategy.

These booming organizations know that their competitors don’t get it – and they capitalize on that fact.  They know that most companies they compete against (and most organizations in the US) can only count on about 30% of their own work force to get the critical work done.

In order to become wildly successful, your people need guidance.  But you can’t be with every person every day of the week (and that tactic doesn’t work anyway).  You need to guide your employees in a way that provides them discretion to make good decisions and the freedom to get great work done.

You need a relentless focus on your organization’s culture.

 

In our new publication we show you the three ways to create this relentless focus, and achieve this wild success.  It has to do with three key elements: managing, communicating, and cultivating great people.
