In the 1980s, one of the most widely held corporate beliefs was that people or employees are an organization’s most important asset.
In the ’90s, Stephen Covey pushed that thought to another level, saying that the “right” people are a company’s greatest investment.
Then, just a few years ago, Marcus Buckingham took that assertion one step further, claiming that an organization’s greatest asset is not just people or the right people, but the right people with passion and creativity.
It’s really not hard to identify people who possess passion and creativity. They are usually the ones who are observing current situations and thinking of how those trends will affect the future. They are also the ones exploring new and better ways of doing things so as to improve and progress on a vision or goal.
When was the last time you saw someone in your life who may have been the right person for a job, but who lacked passion and creativity?
What would be your suggestion to ignite passion, creativity or innovation in him or her?
