Tuesday Quick Tip – Create an Environment Where Failure is Not Fatal

Welcome to “The Tuesday Quick Tip.” Every Tuesday, I’ll be publishing, on this blog, a short, 1 to 2 paragraph tip to help you achieve success in your life, business or career.  You can also receive “The Tuesday Quick Tip,” by email every week when you sign up for a free subscription to my email list.

TIP

Years ago, I had a boss named Sal who loved to catch us doing something wrong.  You could do 100 things right and never hear about it, but do just one thing wrong and he’d pounce like a starving mountain lion, screaming his head off and saying, “I knew you’d screw up.”  It wasn’t exactly a relaxed atmosphere.

Sal had created a culture of fear and fear is a de-motivator.  Fear stops people from doing more than they’re capable of doing.  Fear of failure is the biggest obstacle to success.  Fear of getting yelled at, criticized, or treated like an idiot, created an entire company of people whose only goal was NOT to do anything wrong and be noticed.  But it’s almost impossible to do something right if you NEVER do anything wrong.  In order for a company to be great, people have to be willing to take risks and go above and beyond.  If your fear of making a mistake and being singled out is greater than the possible thrill of success, you end up doing nothing.  Imagine if an entire company of people just stops and does the minimum?  I’ve been there and it’s not a pretty site.

As a sales executive or business owner, the worst thing that can happen to you is your top producers get bored; because that is when their production can slip.  Keep them interested, but more importantly, keep them challenged.  Top producers love challenges.  Here’s a couple of quick ideas: 1) Have them speak at your next sales meeting and talk about what they do and how they do it.  2) Have them mentor a less experienced salesperson who might have the potential to be a top producer.
