Create Your Personal Enterprise

In yesterday’s post I wrote about the growing trend of corporations hiring more “permatemps” versus full-time employees. Over the next decade as corporations increasingly move further in this direction, greater numbers of people will be engaged in entrepreneurial pursuits — by choice or circumstance.

It’s time for you to shift your focus on how you view yourself and your employment. YOU are a personal enterprise. YOU are a business owner. The business you own is YOU! YOU, Inc. is the most valuable enterprise that you could work for. Your product/service is the unique and innovative combination of your talents, knowledge, experience, education, skills, ideas, creativity, relationships, networks, etc. Now is the time for you to start managing your career like a business owner, not just a “permatemp” at the mercy of companies’ quarterly earnings reports.

For some this equates to starting a business. For others this means approaching your job search (and performance) more entrepreneurially. Either way, it’s time to reformulate your expectations about your participation in the workforce — either as an entrepreneur or intrapreneur.

Many of you may be saying, “I have no idea how to create my YOU, Inc.” Fortunately, I’m here to help you. I’m passionate about moving people to thrive professionally, purposefully, and profitably.
Contact me today for some ideas on how you can create your personal enterprise.

Thrive on Purpose,

Paul Wilson, Jr.

Conquering Giants: Thriving Leadership – Part 2

“Super Thrive Week” Series

Continued from Part 1…

Leaders pursue new opportunities and tackle problems in a similar manner to how coaches lead their teams. Both leaders and coaches focus on three critical coaching components: 1) personal preparation, 2) player development and 3) game management.

  1. Personal Preparation: A leader can’t lead any of their players anywhere they have not already been – even if it’s only mentally. Leaders keep their eyes on the big picture, namely the intended outcome of each game (i.e. assignment or project) and their relevance to the entire season (i.e. fiscal period). They recognize that their players look to them for inspiration and direction, so they do whatever it takes behind the scenes to keep their competitive edge. They push themselves to maintain their level of expertise in their area of specialty, as well as gaining at least a minimal level of familiarity in other subjects.
  2. Player Development: Leaders understand that the long-term success of the team will depend on the overall development of the players. They are able to effectively assess the developmental progress of each player and then determine what each player needs to help them grow to reach their potential. They also understand that each player motivates differently, so they are adept at knowing the right buttons to push for each one. Furthermore, leaders constantly look for teaching moments, whether it’s before, during, or after a project, event, situation, etc.
  3. Game Management: Coaches don’t win games… players do. Leaders recognize that they need the contributions of all of their players in order for the organization to accomplish its goals. Leaders design the best strategies, systems, and processes that will position their players to manage and complete their assignments efficiently and effectively. They are keenly aware of various situations that may dictate certain decisions, such as reorganizing the players in the game, substituting a player, or changing the game plan.

Thriving leaders are able to effectively balance all three of these components. They are not hands-off delegators, that just let their players to do whatever they can to win, nor are they micro-managers who oversee “people-bots” who are afraid or unable to make heat-of-the-battle decisions. These leaders know when to be more engaged versus when to let their players figure out their own solutions to problems.

You can become an effective Leader if you: 1) Embrace the fact that just because you are a leader does not make you a superstar. Without your players, you will have minimal success; 2) Create environments that empower individual players while at the same time boosting the team as a whole; and 3) Learn your team well enough to know how to position them to win the game.

Coaching your team (or family) to success takes an unwavering commitment to the fact that every player matters. You may be able to accomplish a lot by your own efforts, but you’ll be able to accomplish so much more with the right team in place. I look forward to seeing your team win!

Conquering Giants: Thriving Leadership – Part 1

“Super Thrive Week” Series

Sports movies are one of the best sources of inspiration, especially when it comes to conquering challenges and overcoming seemingly impossible odds.  One of the best motivational scenes of any movie that I can recall was in the movie, Facing the Giants.

My favorite thing about this movie is how the coach realized that although his team wasn’t the most talented, he convinced team to look beyond their talent to see something that no one could take away from them – heart. He helped his players see beyond their perceived limitations and reach goals they would not have thought possible for themselves.

In life, thriving leaders are really like sports coaches. The best coaches are keenly aware of their team’s overall strengths, weaknesses, and potential. They are in tune with each player’s skill set, temperament, and how they can best contribute to the overall success of the team. These coaches are ambitious and confident not in their own ability to play the game, but in their ability to position their players to maximize their collective talent to win the game.
