Have You Got Enthusiasm And Passion?
Two of the things that seem to be sadly lacking in the construction and engineering industries at the moment are enthusiasm and passion.
The way a person approaches his or her work is just as important as the skills they bring to the job. It’s far more productive in the long term to give someone with the right attitude a chance rather than appointing someone with all the skills, but has a negative approach. There is absolutely no room for negativity within your business.
Actively look for people who really care about what they do and who are passionate and enthusiastic. They take ownership and responsibility for whatever they do and are proud of their achievements. Look after the people who demonstrate commitment and do everything possible to retain them and keep them motivated.
It’s also vital that this approach comes from the top. It’s impossible to have a driven team if the leader has a negative or downbeat attitude.
Enthusiasm is infectious. I am absolutely passionate about what we do here at StreetwiseSubbie. I love what we do for our clients and I am proud of the people we have working with us. And let’s face it – if it’s possible to get enthusiastic about Specialist Sub-Contracting at the moment, then it’s possible to get enthusiastic about almost anything.
And that’s my point. Whatever you do, try to be the best in the world at it. If you don’t love what you do, you might want to think about doing something else. Life’s simply too short to waste it doing something that doesn’t make you happy.
Alternatively you might just want to change your approach to business and try some new techniques. We can’t guarantee to make you happy but we can help you with all your business problems.
