The Self Leader Secret
Integration Vs. Specialization
Businesses today are filled with specialized jobs, dead end jobs that go nowhere. Whether the company serves hamburgers or builds state of the art airplanes, each employee has a specialized dead-end job. Specialization leads to boredom, stagnation and unhappy employees. They business losses it’s most valuable;/ // asset: the brain power of its employees.
McDonald’s has their fry cooks, counter helpers, drive thru workers and other specialized employees. Boeing has hundreds of differing types of works. Mechanics, project managers, computer support, crane operators, painters, warehouse works and many more. All are specialized jobs. None of these occupations are jobs of the mind. None of these jobs can grow.
Specialized jobs are dead-end, ends in themselves. Specialized jobs lead to brain dead non-thinking employees who care little about the company they work for. Employee’s motivation ends with collecting a check. Seldom do they love their job or care at all for their employer.
Imagine for a second your company filled with excited, self-motivated, happy people building wealth, profits and happiness for themselves and their employer.
In a Neothink business that is possible. Every “employee” builds a job of the mind: a fully integrated area of purpose that can grow. Everyone working becomes integrated with the money and the profits, just like the owners.
Take for example a hypothetical Neothink® Hamburger Company. Structured properly each employee would have their own mini-company, a fully integrated area of purpose that can grow.
At the Neothink Hamburger Company each area within the company can grow and grow endlessly. The traditional hamburger cook position transforms into a mini-company CEO.
The employee responsible for hamburgers won’t be responsible for only cooking and making hamburgers. They’d gain all the integrated responsibilities associated with hamburgers: marketing, product development, sales, purchasing, accounting – every responsibility. Mini-company CEO’s run their own mini-company, a fully integrated area of responsibility that can grow.
A mini-company head integrates numbers: cost, sales, inventory. This scientific approach yields never-before-seen breakthroughs. Numbers lead to those “ah ha” moments of new enlightenment. “I tried a new receipt and my sales are up 15% with a cost reduction of 5%.”
In a Neothink Company the better the performance the better the pay. The more profit the better the compensation. The underlying philosophy about business changes with integrated areas of purpose. No more blue collar/white collar. No more specialized boring, stuck-in-a-rut jobs.
At this point the job comes alive. The job can grow endlessly. Each employee becomes a mini-company head. They have all the details to maximize sales and reduce cost. The employee’s compensation tied to the profit of their mini-company. If they come up with a new sales opportunity, such as pre-made frozen hamburgers to sell in grocery stores, they can pursue this, create a new wealth pump.
No more brain-dead lazy employees. Now any company can be filled with employees who can build, who can grow the business without limit. The job becomes exciting as the average employee becomes integrated with making money; they become integrated with the success of the business. They become a mini-CEO.
