In one of my conversations with Lior Hakim, an eTorian who recently moved to Berlin, we talked about how hard it is to inspire and motivate your employees all the time, and he told me something that suddenly made a difference: “We helped their dreams come true”. We should always seek how to help our employees’ dreams come true.
As a founder, what I really want is to make our dream (vision) come true. As a manager, I want to work with people who make their dreams come true, people who are passionate about what they want. It’s about letting our users be all they can be, and it’s about all of us being all we can be.
After our discussion, Lior wrote what he thought we should do to help everyone make their dreams come true:
Complete spontaneity is the best energy for creativity. Go from office to office and tell everyone to grab 2 sheets of paper and a pen and meet outside at the park across the street. Teach everyone how to fold a paper airplane with one sheet of paper. Then explain: I want to feel your passion. I want to work with passionate people that are making dreams come true. We always say we are the largest Investment network. The best Investment is not valued by returns, but by having someone invest back in you.
