My entire philosophy of excellence is predicated on the hypothesis that "the essence of excellence lies in the quality of the individual's performance. The key, then, is to build and sustain a culture in which each individual contributor is inspired to passionately and voluntarily give their best every day."
Some people have commented to me that such a culture is impossible to create, that there's no way you can get everyone to voluntarily and passionately give their best every day. Of course, I disagree. I've done it! I'm not saying it's easy, but I am saying it's possible...and it's worth the effort.
What do you think? Is my hypothesis provable? Is it possible to create such a culture? Or is it "pie in the sky?"
