Building a Successful Organization
Interhack founder Matt Curtin shows how cultivating personal humility helps to build successful organizations in a talk entitled Building a Successful Organization, presented to the Capital Square Rotary Club at Athletic Club of Columbus on July 15, 2008.
Creating an organization is difficult; to create an organization that is successful is much harder.
One key to excellence is humility in the wake of past successes. Cultivating and displaying a sense of genuine humility makes seeking and accepting constructive criticism less painful. In turn, application of useful advice from others is a great boon to long-term success.
Humility must be cultivated on an individual level. When applied to our own personal "brands," humility moves us to find ways to help one another, and enables us to find success in all our endeavors.
