We design IT Nation to inspire you to pursue better business practices. Our entire mission is your success. Part of how we achieve this includes attracting top thought leaders to share their insights with you.
Leaders Eat Last
IT Nation 2013’s keynote speaker Simon Sinek (author of “Start with Why” and “Leaders Eat Last”) challenged you to lead in an edgy new way, one that required you to make employees feel safe at all costs.
Why? Because he believes great customer service starts from within an organization. Employees who don’t treat each other well won’t treat customers well either. And employees who don’t feel safe (read: I may get fired or they are going to make me a part of a reduction in force) are far less likely to perform well or love their work.
It’s a dangerous cycle, one which can only be broken by leaders who choose to start protecting their employees—and putting them first.
Those are great thinking from one of our favorite business thought leaders. This year, we are doing it just a well and we’ve got a whole new paradigm shift for 2014.
The Road to Reinvention
Change won’t happen unless you make time for it. Change won’t happen unless you use all bills and that ‘give a penny take a penny jar’ (just checking to see if you are still reading).
Employees can be great catalysts for change, but only if you create the right environment. That’s why this concept is a perfect sequel to last year’s IT Nation keynote, and one that you can take back and reinvent your business immediately.
