TGI-F!

The rarest of rare… A TGIF!

here we goooooooooooooooo………

***********

  • The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.

*********

I recently learned in the book, “The Captain Class” book, captains, leaders come in all forms of styles.

They don’t have to lead like me.  Or lead like a rah-rah cheerleader.  Or be a great speaker.  Or have degrees.  Or be smart.

So be authentic!

But they do share common traits:

They bust their ass.

They carry the water.  (They do the dirty work no one else wants to do, without complaining.)

They value the team above everything else.

If you want to be a captain on this team, or a better one… do the above…

Let’s CRUSH our competition.  CRUSH THEM.  I CAN’T TELL YOU HOW MUCH I WANT TO DESTROY THEM.  TAKE OUT THEIR SOULS.  WHATEVER.  HAVE THAT MENTALITY.  I KNOW SOME/MANY OF YOU DON’T.  JUST KNOW I DO.  F**CK EM ALL.  LET’S ROLL.  NO ONE DOES WHAT WE DO, SO WHY SHOULDN’T WE HELP MORE CONTRACTORS!?!?!?
***************
GOSH DANG THINK BIGGER.  I talk to many of you… about new stuff and you GO BACK TO OLD STUFF.
I talked to one person about getting another salesperson in that department.  Person totally agreed…instantly mentioned someone we can’t stand that left for the competition that would be interested in coming back.  ARE YOU KIDDING ME?   THINK BIGGER THE MARKET, OUR WORLD IS BIGGER THAN YOU THINK!
***************
COLD.
GOD.
BLESS.
YOU.
AND THANK
YOU.
I WILL NEVER GET TO THANK EACH OF YOU FREEZING THEIR ASS OFF keeping this company ALIVE the next few weeks.  Yes we do a payroll bonus, but no bonus is big enough…!  THANK YOU!
AND SPRING WILL COME!  HANG IN THERE.
***************
I HOPE YOU READ NATE SIPPELS email from Wharton.  If not read it.  Or read it again.  Get one take away.
I got many.
WE CAN AND DO LEARN SO MUCH FROM EACH OTHER.
***************
LESS IS MORE.
Winter we ADD products, training, services, accounts, and everything else…WHAT SHOULD WE OR YOU STOP DOING????  THINK ABOUT IT.  PICK SOMETHING.  DO THAT.
***************
HUDDLES.
Gosh, embrace them, if nothing else just to vent.  Get it out of your system and move on.
It’s amazing how good they are.
OH AND FOR GOSH SAKES, celebrate at them.  We do cool shit.  We have cool sales stories.  SHARE THEM.
**************
You can sit and milk this Friday out… OR YOU CAN FRIGGIN GET AFTER IT.
GO BACK AND LOOK WHAT THE BEST CAPTAINS IN THE WORLD DO.  HAVE DONE.
CARRY THE WATER.
DO THE WORK.
*************
