Dave Gardner’s “Thank God It’s Monday” 13DEC10

“Thank God It’s Monday” is to help companies thrive!

This week’s focus:  leadership

I attended the grand opening of Dell’s Social Media Listening Command Center in Round Rock, Texas.  Manish Mehta, Vice President for Social Media & Community, led the effort to create this critical function.  The grand opening marks a significant milestone, so significant that Michael Dell and other key executives participated in the grand opening.

I asked Manish if this milestone was consistent with his vision. He responded, “Yes for version 1.0, but, I have a vision out through 9.0.”

I love his answer.  He pauses to celebrate this milestone knowing that the journey is not complete. A long-term vision helps Manish and his team thrive.

Thought for the week:

“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.” – Mahatma Gandhi
