Shot 78: AWESOME, DUDE!

By: Tom Newhouse in Leadership, 1 month ago

A Shot is a poignant leadership tip from “a rifle.”  Yes, leadership coach, Tom Newhouse, uses a rifle from his farming heritage to “tell it like it is.” —­­

OR, AWESOME DUDE.  To be called awesome you have to do something awesome.  My thing was being a single shot and bringing home results—I was extraordinarily accurate, especially when Rudy was the marksman.  Yes sir, we did things that few others pulled off with several shots.
Even if we don’t want to be awesome, we want the things we do to be awesome.  We want an awesome product, an awesome company, an awesome team, awesome service, awesome…  Well, you got the picture.  Take it from a rifle, you need some niche in which you exceed expectations.  If you only meet expectations, you’re okay, and, maybe, good, but not awesome.  Think extraordinary, extreme, exceptional, exciting, exhilarating, excellence, extra-special.  Hey, you need the “ex” factor!
