3 Tips for Fostering Companywide Loyalty and Dedication

Robert B. Pamplin Jr., America's Foremost Diversified Entrepreneur, Offers Lessons Learned

PORTLAND, OR -- (Marketwired) -- 02/16/16 -- Robert B. Pamplin Jr., America's foremost diversified entrepreneur, shares three tips for leading a loyal and dedicated workforce. To be an effective business leader, Pamplin notes that a key first step is to challenge people to join forces and work together toward the mutual reward of earned success.

"I have encountered a number of people who believe it is hard to start with a naked idea and see it grow into an irrefutable success," said Pamplin. "But with determination, imagination, a mind for continual learning and problem solving, and a highly-motivated team, it can be done and, believe me, that kind of success is worth more than any other."

Pamplin says entrepreneurs must identify a need and develop a strategy to meet that need, communicate a solution and use available tools and resources to turn that idea into a reality. This process is often not completed alone. Pamplin offers three tips for creating a workforce that is loyal and dedicated to its leader, and how to be a leader that is loyal and dedicated to its employees.

1. Be a member of the gang. Coworkers need to know you are just as much a part of the team as they are. This requires you to be humble and free from self-love, and able to be on the same level as everyone else. Never ask anyone to do something you wouldn't be willing to do yourself.

2. The eyes have it. Be aware of everything and observe all facets of your undertaking. This requires being knowledgeable across a broad spectrum of disciplines. Being an entrepreneur is a continuous process of teaching and learning.

3. Be reward winning. Being a team of discovery and implementation is rewarded according to the level of accomplishment. The higher and preeminent application of problem solving elevates the reward of success. Also, everyone needs to believe that they will share in the accomplishment, and when the achievement is fulfilled, the reward needs to become a reality.

For more than 50 years, Pamplin has been dedicated to entrepreneurship and inspiring others to embrace possibility and make positive changes. To learn more about Pamplin and his entrepreneurial endeavors, visit www.pamplin.org and www.why-i.org.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
