At many of my presentations, I’ll leave time at the end for the audience to brainstorm the ideas and takeaways they plan to implement as a result of what they heard in the speech.  At a recent presentation for the Vail Valley Partnership in Vail, CO, Clark Walsh, an employee at Old Forge Pizza, made a great comment:

“I want to be so good that my customers ask me if I am the owner.”

Why would a customer ask that?  Because of Clark’s positive attitude, the excellent service he delivers, how he treats fellow employees and more. At least several things are happening here: One, Clark respects and admires the owner. Two, Clark finds the customer’s comment to be a compliment. And three, the owner of the restaurant has obviously set a good example, one that Clark wants to emulate.  By the way, this one is important.  An owner must be a good role model, a mentor and leader.  I’ve seen plenty of owners/leaders who don’t set good examples with a “do as I say, not as I do” management style. Regardless of the size of your company, it doesn’t matter who you are or what you do, act like an owner.
