ReTHINK : Build a positive energy organization

We look for simple thing that inspirational, small stuffs that most of us will simplly overlook and bring that to the TRIBES. Inspiration hunter is the effort taken and pursuit by us to influence, affect and involve the tribes.As what Mother Teresa said once "- "I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples"

Presenting Jon Gordon.
Jon Gordon is the one of the most sought after speakers today. His engaging talks and ideas have influenced many leaders and teams across the world.

Some takeaway : 
1. Positive energy trickles up and sideways through an organization but it flows powerfully from the top down.

2.Leadership is not just about what you do, but also what you can inspire, encourage and empower
others to do. To build a positive business, it’s not enough to just be a bus driver yourself. You
must also develop a fleet of bus drivers in your organization.

3.Yet, it’s like the elephant in the room. Everyone sees it but they ignore it—allowing negativity to
ruin far too many careers, teams and organizations. Not anymore. To build a positive winning culture,
you must deal with the cost of negativity head on. At work you’ll likely face organizational and
individual negativity. You’ll have to deal with processes and systems that create poor communication
and negative interactions.

4.From hiring practices to recognition programs to communication processes, you’ll want to
identify the people and the gaps in your processes that are contributing to negativity. You will
want to address these gaps and incorporate positive strategies and best practices that are
proven to hire, develop and fuel positive, engaged people and teams.

5.Good to Great, Jim Collins says to build a successful organization and team, you must get the right
people on the bus. His research shows that great companies and organizations do this. They get
the right people and put them in the right seats.

6.Consider it a company’s version of the football huddle. Google creates wide open work spaces and meeting rooms that foster better communication and idea collaboration. Southwest airlines communicates in many ways to their employees via daily intranet updates, newsletter, conference calls, and town hall meetings.
