“There is a formula for success in business, and it goes like this: You set out to find the very best talent in the marketplace, and then give them a compelling and inspirational vision of what you want them to achieve for you and the company. Then you empower them to achieve those goals using their own skills and talents in any way they choose. If, at the same time, you demonstrate how enormously you value them, not just through compensation, but also verbally, every single day, and if you enable that talent to share in the profit that they help create for you, you’ll be successful. It’s so simple, and virtually nobody does it, because it requires a high-trust working environment, and most business environments are low-trust. In order to own the future of your business, you have to design it around trust.”

  1. This applies to teaching students also. You don’t pick students for the ‘best talent’, but you look for each student’s talent(s) and give them the inspiration to develop/use that talent. And yes it should be so simple and yes, it often isn’t done. And yes, on the “VERBALLY EVERY SINGLE DAY!” (And I should also not forget use this on your own children at HOME!) Thanks.

  2. I could not agree more! Brilliant. Trust is so under-rated in the work place.

  3. My FAVORITE quote from that interview.
