Is your company amazing? Does it make an
outstanding product, provide an unparalleled service? Do you do a top-notch job
each and every day at work? If the answer to any of these questions isn't yes,
it's time to examine why not.
A recent article in the Harvard Business Review, How to Turn Anything from Adequate to Amazing, posits
that in today's economy, doing a passable job is passé. Instead, businesses
need to kick it up a notch and aim for amazing.
The article showcases two businesses, one a parking
garage, the other a hospital, that have upended stereotypes (i.e. parking
garages are ugly and dirty; hospitals have bad food) by creating businesses
that so surpass expectations they generated unexpected revenue streams. The
breathtaking parking garage not only houses cars, it's in-demand as a venue for
parties and charity events; and the hospital's stunning looks and award-winning
food brings makes it a wedding venue choice.
So what does it take to be amazing? Seek
inspiration in others' excellence, you may find it fuels your own quest for aiming
above the ordinary.
We take inspiration from the small business
entrepreneurs in Inc. com's 10 Inspiring Success
reading the profiles in Fast Company's The World's 50

a Cliff-Notes of excellence.
Does your company have a culture of excellence? Do you believe
"aiming for amazing" can help set you and your company apart from the pack?
