Power Of The Mastermind
From The Book
Think And Grow Rich,
Mr. Carnegie Master Mind group consisted of a staff
Of approximately fifty men, with whom he surrounded
Himself, for the definite purpose of manufacturing
And marketing steel. He attributed his entire fortune
To the power he accumulated through this “Master Mind.”
I once worked for a company that wanted 2 ideas a month
from everybody, and I mean everybody, you work there you
were suppose to turn in 2 ideas a month. If it was getting
close to the end of the month and you had not turned any
ideas in, somebody would come looking for you, it seemed
the company did not want anybody slipping through the
cracks. You would sometimes see the maintenance people
put peoples idea to work in the shop, it made everybody
feel like they were being listen to! After working there for
3 years the company was bought out and moved I think
It went to the east coast somewhere. Not long after I went to
Work for another company here in town, they had some
Good programs in place, however they did not promote
Them. This company was a lot bigger than the other
Company I was in, a lot more departments, and 3 shifts.
In my department every day their was large amounts
Of scrap metal going out the door every day, because
I came from a Master Mind program, I got this great idea.
Some of the machine operators, are throwing less steel
Away then others, I told my Supervisor, why not have
A meeting in the break room with the machine
operators and find out how these guys that are wasting
less steel are setting their machines up, and maybe that
would help the other operators waste less steel.
I was told, we are not doing that, they want everbody to go
straight to work when they come in. In 20013 this company
shut our department down because, their way of dealing
with the scrap problem was to have these parts made
outside this country and shipped in. There is no doubt in
my mind if this company were to implement the
Power Of The Master Mind it would be a lot more productive,
It would also create Employees with better attitudes.
I sometimes run into somebody I use to work with from that
Company, and they tell me, it’s worse now than it was when
You were there.
This is a great Master Mind program we have here at Think
And Grow Rich Lessons, and I am glad to be a part of it!
