In the words of Harold R. McAlindon, “The quality of an organization can never exceed the quality of the minds that make it up.” This is candidly one of the best quotes that every entrepreneur must keep very close for quick reference any time they are making important decisions about the business. I largely agree with Harold’s viewpoint here, and I think this is one of the self-assessment areas for entrepreneurs. I mean, you need to sometimes sit back and reflect on the quality of your enterprise. So, what does this reflection or self-examination give you anyway? Does your reflection confirm that indeed you are on top of a quality enterprise, or not? Does it tell you that you are somewhere along the curve, or you are simply scratching with the turks instead of flying with eagles?
I’m not going to be your judge. Ok? Additionally, you don’t need to blame me for bringing out the issue of quality in an enterprise. You could be terrible in this. The parameters of measuring enterprise or organizational quality can be very diverse and daunting. Nevertheless, the market and society out there can have good ideas about what they would classify as qualitative enterprises. I’m talking about a rational and balanced market here. If you bribe your way into people’s heart and they get blinded to the extent of calling black white that is up to you! At least you can rest assured that I’m not with you in that line. Do you understand what I mean? I like being part of enterprises that offer quality goods and services in a responsible and accountable way to all stakeholders, the environment and even the future generation.
So, let me now proceed to document my points as to why I think the quality of an enterprise can never exceed the quality of the minds in that enterprise.
Hey! I think you now know why I had to write this article! I think you now understand why the quality of your enterprise can never exceed the quality of minds you have in the enterprise. Candidly, this guy Harold had something nice. His experience over many years as a business executive and later transforming into a business consultant taught him some few things. As he has influenced my thinking; so I will influence your thoughts. Get me right. I’m not a proud and high minded man. I’m only sharing this knowledge with people who need them and are happy acquiring such. If you think it’s petty, or you are already above these, simply leave it and move on. Ok? It’s not a force. However, I know that there are many people out there that need it. I’m passionate about building and developing entrepreneurs. So pall, you are not gonna stop me………. I wanna think and act 360 degrees!
Bye for now, and have a terrific new week ahead,
The Wise Entrepreneur
