On Structure and Organization


Simple house rules

You have to first learn how to be a technician. (Do the work, play the music, create the art, make it happen)

You can then learn how to become a manager. (Teach the people, guide them, share the gift)

Finally, you can become the entrepreneur. (Cast the vision, change what’s possible, live and express freely)

On Leadership and Vision

nams facility

People do their best work when they are most empowered. I once read about a high performing CEO at a fortune 50 company. If you walked around the office and asked the employees who was responsible for the recent success of the organization, they’d point to the big dog’s office. On the contrary, if you marched into the CEO’s office and asked him the same question, he’d point back out to the employees. The removal of self ego and the ability to admit you don’t have all the answers creates a culture where everyone feels involved. Once you can convince your staff members to feel like the business is equally as much theirs as it is yours, you have unlocked the greatest asset to your organization – enthusiasm. They say if you light it on fire, people will come for miles to watch it burn. This energy is infectious, and with it you can spread your message.
