The Visionaries Workbook
In 1937 Napoleon Hill wrote the classic
Think and Grow Rich
. Oneof the principles set forth was creating a mastermind group. If yourecall, Napoleon Hill put together his own fictional mastermindgroup including the likes of Napoleon, Lincoln, Emerson, Paine,Darwin, Ford, Carnegie, and others whom he called his “InvisibleCounselors.” He asked a very powerful question, “What wouldthese visionaries or luminaries tell me about my career orbusiness?” As Hill evidenced, the insight provided can beprofound.In this entertaining and powerful workbook we ask you to considerwhat visionaries like Dr. Deming, Peter Drucker, AbrahamMaslow, Seth Godin, and others would say about managing yourbusiness, career, and employees.Note: You will notice a natural “tension” with some of thequestions. For example, Warren Buffet discusses staying awayfrom “trends” in favor of the mundane. In contrast, Tom Petersencourages us to embrace Chaos and shake things up. The pointhere is to stimulate your thinking. What you get out of this exerciseis entirely up to you!

Vilfredo Pareto, The 80/20 Rule
Vilfredo Pareto was an Italian sociologist and economist. He ismost famous for introducing the 80/20 rule, in which he explainedthat 20 percent of all actions produce 80 percent of all outcomes.He explained that this relationship held roughly true for almostany subject matter. He called this “the law of the trivial many andcritical few.” For our purposes, it means that 20 percent of acompany’s employees and 20 percent of all employment laws willcause 80 percent of the difficulties and lawsuits. It is far moreefficient for a personnel management system to master the twentypercent that will cause the eighty percent of outcome, than tospend an inefficient amount of time trying to be 100 percent right.
“Give me the fruitful error any time, full of seeds, bursting with its own corrections. Youcan keep the sterile truth for yourself.”
Question: What are the “critical few” employee challenges faced in your business?
