Whether you’re at home or at work, it’s important to be surrounded by people who push you to be your best and motivate you towards greatness. As much as greatness can be a singular pursuit, powered by the actions of an extremely determined individual, greatness often requires a conducive environment and a support system to cultivate and nurture it. At QED National, we firmly believe that, “team work makes the dream work.”
When you surround yourself with people who push you to be great, it makes your path towards greatness easier. A healthy support system will provide you with the right tools to reach your goals, whether it’s access to information, constructive criticism, or newfound opportunities for improvement. It should be no surprise that with these advantages, a healthy support system can propel your growth.
Likewise, when you surround yourself around people who aspire for mediocrity, or worse, who are content with failure, it actively pushes against your pursuit of greatness and makes it that much more difficult to rise above. It even presents the possibility of impeding your growth, causing you to remain stagnant, or retrogress into a mindset or posture you may have already surpassed. It’s already difficult to consistently achieve excellence; don’t make it more difficult by investing in the wrong circle.
This is why having strong leadership matters. Strong leaders like the management team at QED National are dedicated to creating an environment that gives each employee opportunities to succeed and thrive. This is demonstrated by consistently offering assistance, answering questions no matter how grand or small, providing opportunities to grow by sharpening skills or learning new ones, and also by enhancing capabilities to account for an evolving work environment.
“It’s really a two-way street,” QED National president Colleen Molter says, “Great leaders are a result of great workers.”
Employees and senior management both play important roles in elevating your information technology organization. Effective mechanisms of support can make all the difference in your individual and collective pursuit of greatness.
