Andrew Miller on operational excellence, strategy, life balance and everything in between

Toronto – March 17, 2014
March Madness, the annual college basketball tournament in the United States, begins this week. For the next three weeks, the best college basketball teams will play for the national championship. What is equally exciting is watching the fans from the different colleges cheer on their teams. These fans are proud and passionate about the colleges they attend and are not afraid to show it.
 
Are you creating fans for your organization?
 
Your employees should be just as proud and passionate about your organization as they are for their alma mater. There are a few things you can do to ensure you are creating an organization full of fans, and here are three of them:
  • Hire people who are passionate about your organization and what you offer. I have developed the ACM model which are principles to be used when hiring.
  • Perform random acts of recognition. Make sure your employees know that they are respected and appreciated.
  • Offer them new and challenging work. There are always big upsets in March Madness when a team has a huge challenge to beat a better team and they take advantage of that opportunity. You’ll never know how good employees can be unless they are given the opportunity to do great things.
So while you are sitting back and enjoying March Madness over the next three weeks, think about how you can help your employees become fanatics for your organization.
