Magic Formula: Why An Uncle Tom is Bad Company

While a vision is a fuel that drives a business, it doesn't mean that everything that is in the documents must be achieved all at once. ...

While a vision is a fuel that drives a business, it doesn't mean that everything that is in the documents must be achieved all at once.

Take time to layout feasible timelines as you go on. Stay loyal to the vision, but at the same time be realistic. Admit that you are not yet ready to accomplish some of your goals.

Don’t be put under pressure from your competitors to quickly grow out of your comfort by trying to outsmart them before you are ready for the challenge.

“Create and prioritize a vision,” says Shu Saito, writing for Forbes. “Avoid the daily grind. Every day you spend at work is a day you should also have an eye on the future. This is what sets you apart as a CEO and your company apart from the competition.”

Know why you started the business. Try to articulate your vision. The original idea must not be watered down, even if everything around you seems to be crumbling.

“Your vision is the magic, the potential, the blue sky of what could be. It’s this vision that will help you articulate your goals and inspire quality people to join your team,” added Saito.

 Country representatives dispatched to other countries are expected to reflect a good image of their country of birth. A negative attitude will affect their home country and the same applies to CEOs. they are naturally a beacon of the brand they represent.

Their image must match the message of their company. Customers will only believe your message if it is in line with your character.

“Act as the brand and ambassador. As a leader, you are also an ambassador for your brand, your company, your organization,” Lolly Daskal said.

“That means who you are and what you do will always matter, so showcase the kind of message you want others to trust. When people don’t believe the messenger, they won’t believe the message.”

Two businesses can have the same product; however, their culture, the attitude, and behavior of a company and its employees, or value cannot be the same. And this is what differentiates one business from the next.

CEO Entrepreneur writer Tamer Shahin said: “Define the business’ culture and value. The CEO must define the cultures and values that the business will operate around. This ensures that everyone on the team understands and works within the same culture.”

A team that shares the same culture and values will work towards the same goals. Their attitudes, character, and goals are well-defined and aligned to achieve the same result.

“However, it’s up to you to communicate what the business’ culture and values are. That way, everyone on the team will be motivated and aligned in their understanding of how to deliver the strategy and vision of the business,” said Shahin.

One common mistake that leads to the downfall of many leaders is the belief that without them, the world ceases to revolve. 

Those that have refused to heed the counsel of their subordinates have occasionally ended in prison, bankruptcy, or both. Always weigh advice before you make an important decision.

“A CEO surrounds himself with smart people and seeks out their advice,” Doug McCullough and Brooke Medina said in their article published by the Entrepreneur magazine. 

“If society judges us by the company we keep, then the business world judges us by the people we hire, fire, and associate with.”

Be selective in your recruitment process. Go for loyal, smart people who are brighter than you. Learn to be bold, eliminate personalities that are likely to contaminate your good character and good standing within your community.

You are a brand ambassador, don’t associate with bad apples. Train yourself to spot talent from a large pool of interviewees. Don’t kill aspirations. Groom people to become better than you.

“This means that an executive must recognize talent and character. This is true when it comes to choosing who to surround oneself with, including who to seek advice from and even emulate,” continued the Entrepreneur.

As a business owner, you must be the jack of all trades. Don’t focus on a particular department, while you ignore the others. Be an allrounder. Avoid direct interference in the smooth running of the business.

“Know the details of your business, but don’t get stuck in the weeds,” said Vistage writer Sam Reese.

“Top executives can no longer get away with just being cheerleaders for their companies. Because you have ready access to data about every facet of your business, your board and leadership team expect you’ll use it. Your familiarity with the details doesn’t mean you should micromanage.”

Only use the details you have for planning and formulating strategy. If you become an Uncle Tom for your company, you are likely going to lose talented people, who feel useless to the organization because they cannot make simple decisions without your input.
