    Overachievers. Self-made billionaires. World leaders.

    What do they have that you don’t?

    Sure, they have money and power, and they’ve achieved the pinnacle of success in their chosen field. But are they somehow inherently better than you?

    No way!

    In fact, many of the qualities shared by incredibly successful people can be acquired (with discipline and hard work, of course). But which traits comprise “the right stuff” – and can help you achieve anything you set your mind to?

    Here are a few of the top traits high performers share:

    They create brilliant rituals.

    High achievers practice habits which match their focus and energy level to the importance of the task at hand. In this post, we share rituals successful people follow to maximize their performance (hint: put their habits to work for you!).

    They conquer their fear of failure.

    Successful individuals realize that fear is often more imagined than real, and that the likely rewards are far greater than the potential consequences of failure. It’s not that they don’t experience fear (they do); it’s just that they refuse to let that fear paralyze them. The next time you’re tempted to shy away from a calculated risk, ask yourself this question: “What’s the worst that could happen?”

    They are emotionally intelligent.

    EQ is a unique kind of intelligence that combines self-awareness with awareness of others. It’s what enables high achievers to: identify and manage their emotions: while recognizing emotion in others and understand their behavior better; and respond effectively in wide range of situations (both good and bad).

    They prioritize strategically.

    Incredibly successful people steer their ship – and don’t let it steer them. Despite having the same 24 hours in a day as everyone else, they’re able to decide what’s critical, what’s important and what can wait, and then create a clear plan for getting it all done.

    They refuse to stagnate.

    High performers succeed because they realize that there’s always more to learn. They embrace change; they’re endlessly curious; they seek new experiences; and they are always on the hunt for better ways to get things done.

How to Disrupt Your Industry

What do companies like Uber, Spotify and Dropbox have in common?

They’re three of the top companies whose innovations are revolutionizing the business landscape. These organizations aren’t just coming up with cool new products and services; they’re turning their respective industries on their heads.

How do they do it – and how can you accomplish the same? Here are five ways you can disrupt your industry and catapult your business to the top:

Don’t Believe the Hype

When it comes to industry disruptors, be careful not to limit your thinking based on widely held misconceptions. Here are three myths about startups and innovators:

  • If you’ve been in business awhile, you cannot remain disruptive. The truth? Well-established companies can still attract big sums of venture capital to fuel innovation.
  • Silicon Valley is where it’s at. The truth? Businesses in Boston, Chicago, New York City and around the globe attract notable investors and talent.
  • If you’re not a 20-something Ivy-Leaguer, you’ve missed the boat. The truth? You’re never too old to innovate. Top industry disruptors represent every demographic – from Gen Y through Baby Boomers.

Learn How to Say, “No”

While the mantra “the customer is always right” may drive loyalty, it often hampers innovation. To create something no one has seen before, you must focus on what your business is great at – and turn down the rest.

Be Predict-ive, not Predict-able

To turn an industry on its head, you need to lead the way and set the trends (not follow them). Pay attention to what customers say. Educate yourself outside your industry. Read influential business content to help you identify the next big opportunity for your company.

Connect the Dots

Innovations often spring from a combination of two things people love, want or need. Challenge your team to find the intersection between two great ideas – and create something that brings them together.

Assemble a Killer Team of Innovators

The single biggest competitive advantage your company has is its people. If you want to disrupt your industry, Exact Staff has the talented people – thinkers, doers, leaders – to shake things up. Ready to innovate? Contact our national recruiters today to discuss your requirements.
