Business & Corporate

Every business begins with a vision to add something meaningful and useful to the world; however, between this vision and the public stands a line of complex individuals who must form a cohesive and effective team. People are complicated and turnover is costly. Employees bring unique personalities, varying degrees of self-esteem, are motivated by vastly different things, and (most importantly) they have lives outside of work that inevitably impact their daily performance.

 

There is nothing more important for the long-term success of a business than its people. It is easy for leaders to work themselves into the ground trying to ensure that things are done “the right way.” At some point, every leader encounters the reality that it is impossible to control every facet of productivity; therefore, a better path to increasing the impact of a business will focus beyond control – specifically, on the continual development of current employees paired with hiring practices that align responsibilities with individual passions and strengths.

 

An example of how effective an employee-focused culture can have on the growth and impact of a business was recently described by Elon Musk when he responded to a question regarding the scope of his success:

"Each person within an operation is a vector that exerts energy to achieve a common goal. Everyone has a quantity of both magnitude and direction. A company’s progress is determined by the sum of all these vectors. If some vectors are exerting energy in one direction, while others are doing so in a different direction, the impact will be sub-optimal. For example, if an employee is exerting a force of 10 in one way, and another is exerting a force of 10 in the opposite, the total impact is zero. For a company to achieve maximum impact, all vectors must be exerting energy in the same direction. In short, for a company to thrive, all parties must be consistently devoting their efforts to a common vision."
