Your People are Still #1


The idea that people are Number 1 in any business, regardless of its size, is a truism. This perspective highlights the importance of understanding both employees and customers to streamline operations and boost profits.

In this week’s video, listen to the discussion between Harvester Bill and Jeff Berg, CEO of Sperber Landscape, that exemplifies this point. Jeff was a submarine officer and then a consultant for many years with McKinsey & Company. His background definitely equipped him with unique insights into leadership, teamwork and operational efficiency.

Their conversation provides valuable lessons on the significance of continual learning and adaptation in leadership roles. Jeff’s keen interest in gaining new knowledge, especially from industry events, underscores a vital aspect of successful management — the relentless pursuit of personal and organizational growth. This eagerness to learn and apply new ideas is crucial for anyone aiming to enhance their potential in any field.

Attending trade conferences not only offers direct insights from seasoned professionals like Jeff, but also serves as a platform for networking, sharing and learning best practices among our peers. It’s a reminder that no matter the level of success we’ve achieved, there’s always room to grow and improve by investing in and prioritizing people at every level of an organization.

By doing this we will certainly be in alignment to Harvest Our Potential.
