Those who have read James Collins' "Everything in the Foundation" will not forget the "Evergreen" recipe he mentioned in the book: Entrepreneurs and managers should be clockmakers rather than timekeepers and pay more attention to profits Pursuit, preservation of the core, stimulation of progress, bold goals, the evolution of choosing the strong and eliminating the weak, never good enough, the end of the starting point (emphasis on never ending). If you carefully analyze these "evergreen" principles, you will find that these principles are all based on that. It is responsibility. Entrepreneurs and managers not only value the immediate responsibility but also the long-term sense of responsibility. They are entrepreneurs and managers Not only pursue material goals, but also create a sense of responsibility for spiritual wealth!
People can't help but ask: Is there any secret that can make the enterprise's foundation last forever? Let's take a look at the real news a few years ago:
Wuhan Poyang Street has a 6-storey building built in 1917. The building was designed by an architectural design firm in the United Kingdom. At the end of the 20th century, the building named "Jingming Building" spent 80 days in spring and autumn, and its designer sent a letter to the owner of the building, thousands of miles away. The letter informs: The Jingming Building was designed by the firm in 1917, and the design period is 80 years.
The building built 80 years ago, not to mention the designer, will not even have a construction worker alive? However, there are still people who are worried about its safety so far! This is the role of responsibility, this design Groups of employees shoulder responsibilities and pass them on to future generations. Such a small building in a foreign country has always been responsible for it. It is really amazing to be able to do this.
This responsibility is the best guarantee for product quality and credibility. It is the driving force behind the longevity of the foundation.
Responsibility is the compass that enables the organization to maintain the correct strategic choice. Strategic thinking does not ensure that entrepreneurs and managers grasp the correct strategic orientation at the critical time. In the process of achieving strategic goals, an enterprise will encounter various temptations, just like the "sea" faced by Odysseus. "Sound of demon singing"; an enterprise will also encounter unexpected difficulties and setbacks, as if the commander on the battlefield faced a suddenly changing environment. The famous American military strategist Bradley said that the future direction is determined based on the starlight rather than the lights from passing ships. What is this starlight? It is the sense of responsibility of managers! This sense of responsibility is the compass to help people in trouble to make the right choice and maintain the right strategic choice!
Practice has proved that a strong sense of responsibility can arouse people's emotional resonance, not only can stimulate the passion and fighting spirit of subordinates and employees, but more importantly, it can also become a rudder for organizations and individuals to choose when they encounter setbacks.
When Collins talked about the fundamentals of the longevity of the foundation, he said: "Our answer is: the company's core concept." In his view, "the core concept is like the genetic code in nature. The genetic code changes and evolves in species The company ’s core philosophy remains the same when the company looking at the long-term has undergone mutations. It is because of these unchanged guidelines that the company looking at the long-term has a goal and a spirit. "
When observing those excellent teams in depth, it is not difficult for us to find out how important responsibility is to them. Because of a strong sense of responsibility, the organization has an excellent team; team members can only be able to have a strong sense of responsibility. Only by becoming an excellent team can we work wonders!
It is said that a sign is placed on the table of former US President Truman, which reads: Responsibility is here and cannot be pushed anymore. If we treat everything in our work as "responsibility is here, we can't push anymore", dare to face and dare to bear, then you will win respect and success in the end. This is the sense of responsibility we need.
On the road to growth, your biggest challenge and value lies in whether you can take responsibility and have a sense of responsibility! Once we choose the profession we are engaged in, we must love it, like it, and treat it as a kind of fun. Real happiness!
It is necessary for everyone to be courageous to assume their own responsibilities. We do not have to wait for any crisis or major event to consider the issue of taking responsibility. Now we have to open the valve, use all our strength, and boost our strength, Always bear in mind your responsibility. Be a responsible employee and build an excellent team with a sense of responsibility.
The phrase "responsibility is here, we can't push it anymore", we must always keep in mind and never forget the responsibility on our shoulders, because only responsibility is the source of the longevity of the foundation.
