People who don’t share these values get ejected like a virus. You don’t get people to convert to these values………..rather you hire people with a predisposition to work to these values and hang on to them
When things go well, the right people point out of the window, giving credit to factors other than themselves. They shine a light on other people who contributed to their success and take little credit themselves. Yet when things go wrong, they do not blame circumstances or other people for setbacks or failures; they point in the mirror and say, “I’m responsible”.
Nothing great happens without passion, and the right people display remarkable intensity.
In a culture of discipline, people view commitments as sacred…they do what they say without complaint. Equally, this means that they take great care in saying what they will do, careful never to over commit or to promise what they can’t deliver.
They grasp the difference between their task list and their true responsibilities. The right people can complete the statement, “I am the one person ultimately responsible for……….”
The instant you feel the need to tightly manage someone, you might have made a hiring mistake. If you have the right people, you don’t need to spend a lot of time “motivating” or “managing” them. They will be productively neurotic, self motivated and self disciplined, compulsively driven to do the best they can because it’s simply part of their DNA.
