“If one of us is not like the other, then we have to take action.”
If you are at all familiar with Sesame Street, this reference by today’s MVP David Quick to the iconic children’s show will hit home.
David Quick is referring to how leaders can create a magnetic and compelling vision for their company so that more people will be attracted to what they are doing.
You will learn quickly just like I did that David is no bull.
“I use the analogy all the time, I need to be compelled to go to work every day and if and when I start to be repelled, it’s telling me something. I need to sort through that. I urge leaders to think about this magnet that compels and repels. How are you building something that compels the right people to come to your organization every day? Do you have a compelling vision and core values in place?”
Father of four amazing sons, married to an incredible woman, long history of coaching, and all around great guy, Dave Quick loves helping others thrive. He’s getting ready to launch a new business with his wife that will help like minded couples who work together in business do well in both their personal and professional lives.
