Featured Coaching Excerpt - Notes & Transcript, Part 1
  • Ask Yourself: What adversities am I and my team prepared for?
  • Lesson Nugget: Be aware of the needs of businesses if they are in different time zones or in different countries.
  • Notable Quotable: "Rank does not confer privilege or give power. It imposes responsibility." - Peter Drucker (world-renowned management expert)
  • Lesson Nugget: In order to be successful in business, you must have a solid work ethic, be punctual, and be responsive.

-So just to wrap this up here. If you want to be successful, you're telling the Thrivers you definitely have to have a solid work ethic. You definitely need to be punctual. And you definitely have to be responsive.

-Absolutely responsive. And that doesn't mean you don't have boundaries.

-Hit on boundaries. What do you mean?

-That is such a good one.

CLAY CLARK: What do you mean when you say boundaries? Boundaries like, hey, you just can't step over here into this area here?

-So to call an employee at eleven o'clock at night would be crossing a boundary. To expect somebody to take time away from their family on family time in a business relationship could be crossing a boundary. Asking somebody to do something outside the nine to five may be crossing a boundary. So what battle is your team structured to fight?

And who is your team that's structured to be support in the battle that they need to fight? So if you're running a basic operation in a city or a town where you have a structural time to do your business, I get it. My vision as a visionary and a motivator is slightly different because it's global international and always has been global international.

The team structure works on a different operational mentality. A different operational mentality. Every time zone has a different sets of needs. Some companies in the past would be forced to have offices in each country and to do business with an office in each country, addressing the time zone of each country. The internet has made things possible to be alive 24 hours a day in any time zone, any where in the world.

-And do you with-- your staff, because you have a business that's internationally. It's all over the world. I would argue that the people who work with you probably would not work for you or work with you if you didn't have a strong work ethic. And so--


-I guess it's a capstone thought, final thought for the Thrivers. If you may be able to look into the camera and talk directly to the folks at home-- if somebody's struggling with being punctual, having that solid work ethic and being responsive, what do you want to tell them?

-I've never seen anybody in business who had any success, huge success, that wasn't punctual, that had no work ethic, that wasn't committed to the process of taking care of others in the same way that they would take care of themselves. I've seen people pick up checks. I've seen people go to work. But as entrepreneurs and business owners, these principles are possibly the key principles to being successful in your endeavor. I do believe that with all my heart.

-Thank you, my friend. I appreciate it.

-You're welcome.
