3 Things That Set Successful Organizations Apart with Michael Mlynarski, CEO of QualityMinds

If you think that it is just a matter of doing things right and not making mistakes, think again. There are many factors at play when it comes to creating a successful organization.  But what really makes an organization successful? In today’s Episode of The World Class Leader Show, we are joined by Michael Mlynarski, Founder & CEO of Quality Minds. It was founded to help in reaching high quality in terms of software and organizations in order to improve the world. 

Culture Eats Strategy

“Having a good strategy that works and has no risk will always end up not being true.” But there is a famous Peter Drucker quote that says that the “Culture Eats Strategy for Breakfast” will always be true and work in every case. This means that regardless of how successful your strategy may be, your company’s culture always decides success. This demonstrates how crucial the human element is to every business. Your organization will fail no matter how well-thought-out and effective your strategy is if the people implementing it don’t foster the right culture. Culture is not all about relaxing in the office and enjoying free snacks. It’s more important how your people behave under pressure, how they handle different problems, and how they treat partners, customers, and other team members. At the end of the day, the people who implement the plan matter.

Implementing Trust

“The trust should be already there and be implemented in the Company” One of the most crucial components of a successful business is trust. When individuals within an organization trust one another, they spend less time defending their own interests and more time focusing on strategies for growing their company. Building genuine trust in the workplace is crucial, and you, as a leader, must realize this. Your business cannot operate effectively as a whole without trust. As a result, you will have a team of disorganized individuals. Numerous advantages may result when workers believe they can depend on and are dependent upon their coworkers. You’ll be able to manage challenging circumstances with ease. Because you’ll be more assured in your team’s abilities, you’ll also be better equipped to seize new and exciting opportunities.

The Role of the CEO

And, of course, the CEO is needed, especially for the outer world. But for the inner world, it should have no differences in the company.  Although he may be ultimately responsible for every decision and action of every member of the company, including those decisions and actions of which they are not aware.  But every member of the company should not fear to say something or share some ideas with the CEO. With this authentic relationship, customers can also feel that this is a genuine culture. “It makes it easier because then, as a CEO, if it works in a lot of self-organization, you are not this single point of failure anymore.” At the end of the Interview, Micheal shares his Favorite Book, The Big Five for Life by John Strelecky. It’s a story about a Founder who was very successful, and the basis of his success was asking people what are their Big Five for Life. And as your CEO being as near as possible to your Big five, can result in both of us having the highest chance of success.  The Big Five of Life questionnaire can lead to understanding better the person who’s in front of you, what are their aspirations, goals, and personal motivation.
