What does Mister Fantastic from the comic books’ famous Fantastic Four, Elastigirl from Pixar’s “The Incredibles” movies, and Soviet Union Olympic gold medal grabbing gymnast Nadia Comaneci have in common that matters to your business? Cosmic superpowers, obviously. But how do you harness otherworldly superpowers to help your business thrive and grow? Well, first you’ll need access to cosmic gamma rays, weapons grade uranium or whatever cocktail of anti-growth hormones they gave poor Nadia…
Flexibility. The answer is flexibility, which is something that can be used and replicated in your business without getting radiation sickness or being put on some sort of government watchlist. On this week’s Overlap Podcast, our boys Sid and Keith are blessed to have in house the Mogul of Malleability, the Abbot of Adjustability, the Foreman of Flexibility Tim Sansom, Director of Sales for Sexton Lawn and Landscape, First of His Name. Tim started from the bottom and now he’s here, chock full of wisdom, truth and vital information for your everyday life.
As Tim’s career arc shows, flexibility is a key factor that will help you rise up in an organization. By showing willingness to step up to the plate and do what needs to be done, even if it isn’t in your official positional roles, you show you have the skills, know-how and insight to be given more responsibilities and more opportunities for promotion, advancement and success. For so many of us, work becomes a daily chore, a quiet humdrum of mindless and endless ticking off of checklist boxes, a slow death by a million dull, boring paper cuts of adequacy … that got dark. But, validly dark – we owe it to ourselves and our businesses to make sure we leave room for spontaneousness, whimsy, caprice and chicanery … an openness and welcoming spirit that embraces the unknown and unforeseen.
If you aren’t willing to try new things or boldly go where no one has gone before, you’re limiting your future possibilities for happiness and success in both business and in life. Tim and our boys will give you the tips, tools and tutelage you need to tack on and thrive.
Turn on, tune in and listen up to this week’s episode of The Overlap Podcast.
