Why in the

World did you

go to Siberia?

concerted human

potential in the wholeheartedservice of others.****Employees, Customers, Suppliers, Communities, Owners, Temporary partners

*A “Blue ocean” is by definition very profitable … and will be quicklycopied. “sustainableblue” (Internal organizational excellence) is far more difficult to copy.

“If I could have chosen not to tackle the IBM culture head-on, I probably wouldn’t have. My bias coming in was toward strategy, analysis and measurement. In comparison, changing the attitude and behaviors of hundreds of thousands of people is very, very hard.[Yet] I came to see in my time at IBM that culture isn’t just one aspect of the game—it is the game.”

—Lou Gerstner, Who Says Elephants Can’t Dance

Organizations Exist to Serve. Period.

Leaders Live to Serve. Period.

Passionate servant leaders, determined to create a legacy of earthshaking transformation in their domain (a 600SF retail space, a 4-person training department, an urban school, a rural school, a city, a nation), create/ must necessarily create organizations which are no less than Cathedrals in which the full and awesome power of the Imagination and Spirit and native Entrepreneurial flair(We are all entrepreneurs—Muhammad Yunus) of diverse individuals(100% creative Talent—from checkout to lab, from Apple to Wegmans to Jane’s one-person accountancy in Invercargill NZ)is unleashed in passionate pursuit of jointly perceived soaring purpose (= win a Nobel peace prize like Yunus, or at least do something worthy of bragging about 25 years from now to your grandkids)and personal and community and client service Excellence.

… no less than Cathedrals in which the full and awesome power of the Imagination and Spirit and native Entrepreneurial flairof diverse individualsis unleashed in passionate pursuit of … Excellence.
slide16
Such Talent unbound pursue Quests(rapidly and relentlessly experimenting and failing and trying

again)which surprise and surpass and redefine the expectations of the individual and the servant leader alike. The collective “products” of these Quests offer the best chance of achieving rapid organizational and individual adaptation to fast-transforming environments, and provide the nutrition for continuing (and sometimes dramatic) re-imaginings which re-draw the boundaries

of industries and communities and human achievement and the very conception of

what is possible.

slide17
In turn, such organizations, bent upon excellence and re-imaginings based on maximizing human creativity and achievement, will automatically create cadres of imaginative and inspiring and determined servant leaders who stick around to take the organization to another level, and then another—or, equally or more important, leave to spread the virus of Freedom-Creativity-Excellence-Transforming Purpose by pathfinding new streets, highways and alleyways which vitalize and revitalize, through creative destruction, Entrepreneurial Capitalism, which is the best hope for maximizing collective human Freedom, Happiness, Prosperity, Wellbeing—and, one prays, some measure of Peace on earth.

“I have always believed that the purpose of the corporation is to be a blessing to the employees.” *—Boyd Clarke**

*TP: An “organization” is, in fact and after all is said and done, a/the “house”

in which most of us “live” most of the time.

**The late Boyd Clarke was CEO of the Tom Peters Company at the time of his death.

“The path to a hostmanship culture paradoxically does not go through the guest. In fact it wouldn’t be totally wrong to say that the guest has nothing to do with it. True hostmanship leaders focus on their employees. What drives them is finding the right people and getting them to love their work and see it as a passion. … The guest comes into the picture only when you are ready to ask, ‘Would you prefer to stay at a hotel where the staff love their work or where management has made customers its highest priority?’”

“We went through the hotel and made a ‘consideration renovation.’ Instead of redoing bathrooms, dining rooms and guest rooms, we gave employees new uniforms, bought flowers and fruit and changed colors. Our focus was totally on the staff. They were the ones we wanted to make happy. We wanted them to wake up every morning excited about a new day at work.”

The Dream Manager

—Matthew Kelly

slide30
The Dream Manager—Matthew Kelly“An organization can only become the-best-version-of-itself to the extent that the people who drive that organization are striving to become better-versions-of-themselves.” “A company’s purpose is to become the-best-version-of-itself. The question is: What is an employee’s purpose? Most would say, ‘to help the company achieve its purpose’—but they would be wrong. That is certainly part of the employee’s role, but an employee’s primary purpose is to become the-best-version-of-himself or –herself. … When a company forgets that it exists to serve customers, it quickly goes out of business.Our employees are our first customers, and our most important customers.”
slide32
My local 7-11 was a dump. The company poured perhaps a half-million dollars into a thoroughgoing renovation. They might as well have pissed the $$$ down the drain. In the end, same staff, same crappy attitude—but now it even stood out more in a sparkling facility.
slide34
My suggestion, on bended knee: When you finish your annual or project budget, go back and cut the “Capex”/Capital Expenditure by 25%--and

put the $$$ directly into people programs! (“Dream Fulfillment Budget”??)
