Today’s show is brought to you by Brandon Dawson, the CEO and founder of Audigy Group and Stratus Dental Group. Brandon is a sought-after lecturer and CEO advisor on topics of entrepreneurship and leadership. The following excerpt was taken from a recent public speaking appearance that Brandon made to a conference of audiologists and dentists.
See, the difference between security and freedom is this. Security is “somebody is going to take care of me, and I just need to kind of show up and it will work itself out.” Freedom is “I can do anything and everything I want to because I know I’m in control of my life and I know I can create the impact I want to make for me.”
You want to work in an environment that cares about you? Bring freedom into your workplace for your owners every day. Don’t make them tell you what to do. Don’t make them push you.
Ask the question, “What can I do to most substantively impact your business? How can I change in order to add the most value possible? Because any employee, any team member, any partner who has that perspective and puts that much energy into it each and every day will become a leader in that organization. And if you can’t learn to do it right where you’re at, you won’t do it anywhere else.
