Performance is your reality.

— Harold S. Geneen

Welcome, Inspired Traveler!

What potential you have! What promise you hold! We have all said those words when we made a decision to bring a new person onto our team. And, perhaps, someone once said those words to us. As leaders, we look for those who hold the key to creating the vision and bringing new and innovative practices to our workplaces while they re-energize our business.

But, while we recruit for potential, we pay for performance — and I don’t mean just with dollars and cents! Performance drives results, and results drive success and growth. Poor performance places a burden on the organization, its customers and it employees.

So — are you rewarding and celebrating performance or the promise of greatness? Now, I believe in potential and I believe in promise — life would be painfully stagnant without it! But I also believe that promises made must be kept and potential must be unleashed to be realized. So:

How do you inspire the potential that leads to performance excellence?
How are you measuring performance excellence?
How are you training performance excellence?
How are you rewarding performance excellence?

With the right focus on the right thing at the right time, the sky is the limit — for your organization, your customers, and your employees. But, if we only focus on what we could do rather than on what we are doing, we are selling everyone short.

So, gather the people, inspire them with possibilities, ignite their passions, and then celebrate their performance! Nothing inspires like success and nothing unleashes promise as much as productive performance outcomes!
