When I’m working with a client, one of the first things I want to know is the history of the store.
How did we get to where we are today? Who started this? Who put the original sweat in this deal? Who grinded it out during all those really tough years? Who took the risk? Who took the challenge? Who’s been carrying the mantle up to this point?
As a leader, you are responsible for the history of your business. Maybe you didn’t create all the history but you’re now part of it and you’re responsible for sharing the history.
Some of it may be rich history. Some of it may be even a bit bleak. It doesn’t matter. You’re a leader, you’re responsible for knowing the history and even more important, you’re responsible for sharing the history.
If you want your organization to grow, share the history.
If you want your organization’s culture to expand,
share the history.
If you want to build a powerful team, share the history.
Share the history. Be part of the history. Make some history. History starts with you. That’s all I’m gonna say, Tommy Gibbs
