Our Passion for Being the Best

Don’t we all want to be the best at what we do? As we grow up and start imagining our future careers, we don’t imagine ourselves as being an average performer or just getting by, we imagine ourselves as being the best.

Organisations are the same, when they are no more than innovative thoughts either in someone’s mind or scribbled on paper, the images are of success and not just of getting by or survival strategies.

So what happens – and why do we settle for less? Sometimes it’s because we’re told that we can’t be the best, or we are over ambitious and expect to be successful straight away without developing our career or business. Other times it just appears to be so much work – and where other people (consciously or unconsciously) blunt our passion and encourage us to drop the dream and simply go with the flow.

Although you may not be part of a best practice organisation today, if you embrace a ‘best practice’ culture and encourage those around you to do the same, you can be part of a best practice organisation of tomorrow. From there you are at the forefront of business development and assured of sustainable growth and a unique competitive advantage.
