Why introduce Passion to my Organisation?

In the trailblazing book, “Good to Great”, Jim Collins’ research team identifies great companies and what makes them tick. The ‘Hedgehog model’ reveals that the first attribute for great companies is passion – great companies do what their employees are passionate about rather than trying to make them passionate about their work. In his own words:
“Good to great companies did not say ‘ok folks, let’s get passionate about what we do’ sensibly, they went the other way entirely; ‘we should only do the things we can get passionate about’.” – Jim Collins

It’s well known amongst web developers that one of the perks of working for Google is that you get to spend 20% of your time on whatever interests you (a concept called ‘Innovation Time Off’). This freedom to explore passions keeps developers happy and has yielded some innovative, not to mention profitable, new products for the company. Google is powered by passion and every time they advertise a new career position they receive over 130 applications.

And where would Apple be without passion?

“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work, and the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking, and don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it, and like any great relationship it just gets better and better as years roll on.” – Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple Inc.

Many people have written about the impact of passion but it is only Passion Maps that has developed the technologies to enable small and large-scale empassioning of organisations. We have found that those who operate from a place of passion are happier, more energised, more collaborative, enthusiastic, innovative and perform at their peak capacity.

Passion Maps aims to deliver only magnificent programs for clients. Our programs have created amazing results with organisations across a diverse range of industries such as IT, professional services, financial, telecommunications, government and not-for-profit sectors. All of our programs are capable of being assessed qualitatively and quantitatively.

Passion has inspired whole organisations, individuals, business partners, teams and leaders to work to their full potential and passion. Passion has brought people together in community, developed a shared understanding of one another and potent way of working together in an ever-changing world. Organisations that use passion effectively and genuinely have a much greater capacity to achieve business goals and make a difference in the world.
