I made that statement when our company’s revenue and profit-making machine bought one of our competitors. We were mocked and ridiculed by our competitors for many years because of our size. We were a small fish in a big pond. We decided to commit our efforts to developing our leaders and employees into what we called Eagle Leaders. We quickly became a big fish in a small pond and increased our profits to over $20 million per year. Many of our competitors finally stopped laughing when we began buying their companies.
I served as the President and Chief Operating Officer of that remarkable company as we soared from $500,000 to $70 million in revenues. We created fifteen divisions that generated profits in the 25%-50% range by implementing 76 Eagle Principles. In 2008, I founded Tom Wurtz Consulting and the Eagle Leadership Academy to offer workshops/consulting services to executives who are determined to say, “our competitors are not laughing now!”
So what is the Eagle Leadership Academy? The Academy is an on-site customized eight-week leadership development program designed to teach leaders and employees the art of Corporate COMMON SENSE – The Noble Pursuit of Profits. Just like baking a cake, revenue and profit creation is not difficult if you follow a proven recipe/formula. Here’s one of the Eagle Principles that will instantly change the mindset of your employees and leaders. The lessons taught behind this statement are very powerful.
“An Eagle leader sees and hears what everyone else sees and hears, but thinks what no one else is thinking!”
An Eagle employee sees every event as an opportunity to improve sales, operations, customer service, revenue and profits. Would developing this Eagle skill-set be of value to your company’s future? Would you quickly differentiate your company from your competitors if every employee operated from this mindset? This exercise surprises even the most experienced leaders as to how much money they are leaving on the table. Once your leaders and employees embrace an Eagle mindset they will never view their jobs the same way again.
