3 Business Lessons From Steve Jobs

giphy6Our management team at 600 Global (Phoenix, AZ) is focused on cultivating the natural abilities of our people to help them discover their true potential. Through ongoing training and business mentoring we believe that by investing in them and their futures, the future of our organization is bright! One of our favorite entrepreneurs to gain inspiration from is Steve Jobs. Here are a few lessons that we’ve taken from him and how we incorporate them into the culture of 600 Global.

Your goal isn’t to make money. Apple’s goal isn’t to make money. Our goal is to design and develop and bring to market good products. We trust as a consequence of that, people will like them, and as another consequence, we’ll make some money. – S. Jobs

In sales, people typically have the mindset that it’s all about turning a dollar. Unfortunately, this couldn’t be further from the truth! Our approach is to uncover the needs of our client and customers and simply match the two to find solutions that work for both parties. In doing so, not only do we create a stronger business partnership, but yes, dollars are also turned.

Don’t lose faith. Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith. – S. Jobs

There are many things that will test your faith in yourself, your abilities and your goals. This is why we offer encouragement and support to our employees to help them through those tough times. By not giving up on them, they will learn to not give up on themselves either.

Go for a home run. Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren’t used to an environment where excellence is expected. One home run is much better than two doubles. – S. Jobs

The clients that we represent at 600 Global are some of the biggest players in their industries. It is vital for us to deliver quality results and never lose our integrity. We hold our team to high standards to ensure that they are swinging for the fences rather than hoping for that double.
