When the founder and Executive VP of QI Group was growing up, his father taught him that he was to always put service to others over himself. As a leader, he encourages his team to live by this lesson that has stuck with him throughout his life. While they may be a large business that operates globally, at the core they are still a small business with the same values that they started with.
Vijay Eswaran and his company came from rather humble beginnings and no matter how much success that he has achieved he remembers his roots. Things weren’t always easy and throughout the problems and failures he has faced he still managed to keep pushing ahead to become one of the leaders in his industry. Part of the reason why his company has done so well is the pride that the people that are part of it take when it comes to success. Unless the people that are part of the company do well, the company will never do well on its own. This is why Vijay Eswaran works so hard to bring people into his business that share the same vision.
As long as a business gathers the best players, trains hard, and comes up with good strategies, they can do well according to Vijay Eswaran. In essence, a business and a sports team have a lot in common and it’s a good idea to keep that in mind when working as an entrepreneur. You must strive to outdo your opponents and improve the way you play the game. While the idea for a company may be a good one with potential, if you don’t have the right people within it you will end up losing no matter what other resources that you may have access to.
