Passion is required for a winning culture
If a leader wants their entire organization to be passionate about their job, they must make it mandatory. How serious should a leader be about making passion mandatory? Should a leader fire their top performer if they lack passion and don’t have a desire to be better regardless of their results? In most cases they won’t, but in time that top performer’s results may decline as the results catch up with their lack of passion.
Passion is not an emotion that is taught, rather it is the result of a person doing the right job or having the right career. Leaders don’t necessarily have to mandate passion out of each person like being told to get to work on time, but they should recognize those individuals that lack the passion and strive to help them find it in their position. In today’s economy it is not always enough to do a good job or know your business. A person and organization must have the passion to pass on to others. Passion is the fuel for an organizations success no matter what industry, region or economy one is in.
