The netlogx culture is one that inspires its team members to share ideas openly and nurtures critical thinking. We have multiple opportunities each week, in which our team members are collaborating on solutions for increased productivity, implementation of new processes and innovative ways to better serve our clients. Having the benefit of many bright minds with varying experiences, passions and expertise, netlogx’ team members are constantly encouraged to offer their thoughts and perspectives. From this environment, we uncover brilliant ideas, recommendations and alternatives to continuously improve our netlogx family.
At the same time, when team members share their ideas, they should be willing to accept that their initial idea may ultimately morph into a different final result than they had originally envisioned. We often find our suggestions for processes, approach or communications will be well received, yet additional feedback will come for improvement and modification. It such circumstances, it could be easy for the initiator of the idea to be discouraged that their recommendation was not immediately stamped ‘APPROVED.’ However, the netlogx culture encourages the original idea to be embraced, while also considering how it could be made even better, which requires our team members to dismiss pride of authorship. Instead, the focus is on the development of the best solution, irrespective of the individual team member who brings it forward.
I recall once listening to a discussion about the Grateful Dead. I was struck by how that same mentality made them flourish. Regardless of whether a song was originally conceived by the brilliance of Garcia/Hunter or Weir/Barlow, the final version of the song was a Grateful Dead song. So, whether it is internal processes, consulting or writing music, embracing ideas and allowing those to be tweaked and modified, the result is a winner for the team. Be not afraid….share your ideas and watch the positive results that flow.
“Capital isn’t so important in business. Experience isn’t so important. You can get both these things. What is important is ideas. If you have ideas, you have the main asset you need, and there isn’t any limit to what you can do with your business and your life.”— Harvey Firestone
