It’s Halloween – What Costume Do You Wear to Work?

Business SuccessYou would do just about anything to run a successful business, right? Whatever type of business you are in, would you wear a costume on Halloween? You might just stop here and comment right now below if you like. Then again you might wonder, “Where exactly is he going with this one?” Costumes? Halloween? Getting dressed up? For success in business? How about the rest of the time when it is not Halloween? Are you in costume then too?

Give people credit. They are able to tell if you are not being authentic in your business. If you are acting or creating a fantasy around yourself, it is not going to last for long. Think this does not apply to you? Let’s start big. Take a look at the list of top company CEO’s who have crashed and burned this last year. It is a lack of leadership on their part. It is more than that alone. They were carrying out the act of being capable of being the CEO of the company of the size and complexity, when in reality they were not the right person for the job.

Now let’s go smaller. How many of us know someone who owns and runs a small local business? Our specific interaction with them is more socially based or in and around volunteer work, possibly in sports with their kids. Then, one day, you come into their place of business and they are a different person there. You watch as they are ordering around the staff or screaming into the phone. It is as if they were two different people.

Now you have formed a new view regarding what you think and feel about this person based upon the new information you are processing. You wonder why they are not behaving the same way as you have seen so many times before during the volunteer work. You may even call into question which person is the real person? Is the person you know from the volunteer activities the act and the work personality the authentic person?

When we look at these two extreme examples, by the business size, we should note there is a single common thread. The lack of being the authentic person that you are, with honesty and values, will lead to a bad ending. In order to achieve consistent success in business and results to build further success upon, we must be who we are and work to do this if we find it difficult to achieve.
