Mavericks oan it wurk: wa nimt yn tsjinst?

Mavericks oan it wurk: Wêrom winne de meast orizjinele sinnen yn it bedriuwslibbenFerline moanne keas de Indianapolis Marketing Book Club Mavericks at Work as it boek om te lêzen. Ik hâld fan boeken, en foaral fan saaklike boeken. Myn hûs is fol mei har. Ik lês dizze en bin gewoan begon Nea allinich iens: en oare geheimen foar sukses, ien relaasje tagelyk.

Mavericks at Work is ien fan dy ongelooflijk ynspirearjende boeken, mar ik bin der net wis fan oft ik myn 'folling' derfan krij. Tom Peters, Guy Kawasaki, Seth Godin, en sels myn freonen en famylje fertelle my hieltyd in Maverick te wêzen.

Ik bin in Maverick fan hert, mar ik bin net oertsjûge dat de wrâld safolle mavericks nedich is. Dogge we?

Maverick: in iensume dissenter, as in yntellektueel, in artyst, as in politikus, dy't in unôfhinklike stânpunt ynnimt los fan syn of har kollega's.

Wy hawwe ommers gjin jonges nedich dy't gewoan ús auto's reparearje, de flierren feie, de bussen draaiende hâlde en de winkel besjen? Kin elke bedriuw it wier betelje om Mavericks te promoatsjen? It is net dat ik twifelje oer myn eigen ûndernimmingsgeast, ik twifelje gewoan dat d'r in soad kânsen binne foar Mavericks.

In goede freon fan my frege hoe't ik it boek leuk fyn. Ik antwurde: "Ik hâld fan it boek!"

Doe moast ik wer oan it wurk. It is net dat myn wurk my net ynfloedryk makket ... it is gewoan dat bedriuw as gehiel wurdeart net needsaaklik de maverick op it wurk. Se binne de non-konformisten, de bûtensteanders, de problemen. Faak tink ik dat it de Maverick is dy't úteinlik siket nei de folgjende kâns - om't it noait is wêr't se krekt weigean.

Bin ik hjir mis mei?

    I think people can take an independent stand in whatever they do.. even store attendants and auto mechanics. I don’t think we can have too many people who stop doing things just because “that’s the way they are” and instead ask questions, decide to go against the grain, and as a result, improve the world around us.

      I agree, this is why we have Jessie James who builds motorcycles, Orange County Choppers, builds motorcylces. And all of the the people who will do contract work for them. Do you think all of these people are conformists, play it safe in life. these are examples. I am a non-conformists. I am an white female americian who went to acupuncture school. it was a long 3 years. and I am not of asian decent. I would say that is being a non-conformists. We really need more non-conformists

    Jesse,

    I don’t disagree and don’t take me the wrong way, neither is necessarily more valuable than the other. I believe a great team needs ‘lifters and pushers’. Those that think it and those that can execute on that plan.

    I just wonder how many mavericks an industry can handle and if there’s really any shortage of them!

    I was thinking this too, but I realised – everyone can be a Maverick sometimes, and a ‘lifter and pusher’ other times (even if it requires biting their tongues). It would be no good if everyone suggested doing everything a new way every time. But I think there is room for everyone to ask the questions that need asking, especially “why?”. And in my experience, this question is asked much too rarely.

    I agree. We must have people to push the new ideas and dream of what can be. Just as importantly, we need the people that can focus on doing what is necessary to carry the new direction forward.

    There is a time and a place for both. Stagnation occurs when no new ideas are being offered. However, stagnation can also occur when too many ideas are thrown into the mix and nobody is willing to work with someone else’s ideas.

Wat tinksto?
