Mavericks na poslu: Ko zapošljava?

Mavericks na poslu: zašto pobjeđuju najizvorniji umovi u posluProšli mjesec, Klub knjiga marketinga u Indianapolisu izabrao je Mavericks at Work kao knjigu za čitanje. Volim knjige, a posebno poslovne knjige. Moja kuća ih je puna. Čitam ovaj i tek sam počeo Nikad ne jedite sami: i druge tajne uspjeha, jedna veza u isto vrijeme.

Mavericks at Work jedna je od onih nevjerovatno inspirativnih knjiga, ali nisam sigurna da li ih dobijam ili ne. Tom Peters, Guy Kawasaki, Seth Godin, pa čak i moji prijatelji i porodica neprestano mi govore da budem Maverick.

U srcu sam Maverick, ali nisam uvjeren da svijetu treba toliko mnogo mavericka. Zar ne?

disident: usamljeni neistomišljenik, kao intelektualac, umjetnik ili političar, koji zauzima neovisno stajalište odvojeno od svojih saradnika.

Napokon, zar nam ne trebaju momci koji će jednostavno popraviti naše automobile, pomesti podove, održavati autobuse i promatrati trgovinu? Može li si svaka kompanija zaista priuštiti da nastavi promovirati Mavericks? Nije da sumnjam u vlastiti poduzetnički duh, samo sumnjam da vani ima puno prilika za Mavericksa.

Moj dobar prijatelj me pitao kako mi se sviđa knjiga. Odgovorio sam: "Volim knjigu!"

Tada sam se morao vratiti na posao. Nije da mi moj rad ne dozvoljava da budem uticajan ... to je jednostavno posao u cjelini ne cijeni nužno maverick na poslu. Oni su nekonformisti, autsajderi i problematičari. Često mislim da Maverick na kraju traži sljedeću priliku - jer nikad nije tamo gdje su upravo otišli.

Da li griješim u ovome?

    I think people can take an independent stand in whatever they do.. even store attendants and auto mechanics. I don’t think we can have too many people who stop doing things just because “that’s the way they are” and instead ask questions, decide to go against the grain, and as a result, improve the world around us.

      I agree, this is why we have Jessie James who builds motorcycles, Orange County Choppers, builds motorcylces. And all of the the people who will do contract work for them. Do you think all of these people are conformists, play it safe in life. these are examples. I am a non-conformists. I am an white female americian who went to acupuncture school. it was a long 3 years. and I am not of asian decent. I would say that is being a non-conformists. We really need more non-conformists

    Jesse,

    I don’t disagree and don’t take me the wrong way, neither is necessarily more valuable than the other. I believe a great team needs ‘lifters and pushers’. Those that think it and those that can execute on that plan.

    I just wonder how many mavericks an industry can handle and if there’s really any shortage of them!

    I was thinking this too, but I realised – everyone can be a Maverick sometimes, and a ‘lifter and pusher’ other times (even if it requires biting their tongues). It would be no good if everyone suggested doing everything a new way every time. But I think there is room for everyone to ask the questions that need asking, especially “why?”. And in my experience, this question is asked much too rarely.

    I agree. We must have people to push the new ideas and dream of what can be. Just as importantly, we need the people that can focus on doing what is necessary to carry the new direction forward.

    There is a time and a place for both. Stagnation occurs when no new ideas are being offered. However, stagnation can also occur when too many ideas are thrown into the mix and nobody is willing to work with someone else’s ideas.
