- Dedicating yourself to excellence in your job and at home
- Laying down your non-negotiables
Approaching your mission: "When I go to visit a customer in Turkey, I'm working. I'm not going to get there and do something stupid in the hotel. And if people who work for me think that they can that's poor judgment. If you're traveling out to see a customer, you have to be thinking about a whole environment."
Zach on understanding the motivators of your team: "I can give the money and say spend an hour however you want but if I give a fancy watch to the guy from Sweden and a family vacation to the guy from Italy, they're not going to be happy. So knowing that makes me better at understanding the motivation of my team."
Zach on a member of his team that later became one of his best performers: "You're on my team. This is how we do things we don't do things the way you did with your other company. At the end of the day, if you want to do things slightly differently and produce results, that's fine. But you have to learn my way of doing this."
