I just received in the mail the book The Dream Manager (Matthew Kelly). It was recommended to me by a new friend about a week ago. Here’s an excerpt from the very beginning of the book:
“A company’s purpose is to become the-best-version-of-itself. The next 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 an employee’s role, but an employee’s primary purpose is to become the-best-version-of-himself or herself…
The company exists for people. When a company forgets that it exists to serve its customers, it quickly goes out of business. Our employees are our first customers, and our most influential customers.
A person’s purpose is to become the-best-version-of-himself or herself.”
I’m looking forward to diving deeper into this book. Thank you, Scott Druhot, for the recommendation!
Update: I just finished this book during my lunch! Wow! I will be implementing these ideas with my leadership team soon! You need to read this book!
