Rowing In The Same Direction16 Apr 2018
NEW YORK CITY—I recently read Jim Collin’s book, Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap and Others Don’t. It’s essentially about 28 companies that are studied in the course of five years. After reading tons of data and interviews and information, Collins attempts to discover the key components of greatness and how some achieved it and how or why some fell short. There is a lot to unpack here, but what struck me in particular was the necessity to find the right people for the right job. When you do, they will not only perform better and be happier, but they will propel the rest of the team in the process. This is a crucial detail in producing a great company.
