Got a call from a dear friend and we met up for some light jazz and catching up. Turned out that though she lives in the faraway west, and we’re not as much in touch as we should be, she had been watching our 99story unfold with much interest! That meeting led to me taking her for a dekko at the 99space in action, and she came away impressed. As for me, I was happy to see the team through her eyes, and she’s a keen pair of eyes to view any situation through, believe you me!
She gauged the team well, and wisely concluded that our growth graph had been given the necessary impetus by the one over-riding feeling she perceived in the group, that of ownership. It felt great to me that this was so palpable, and it’s a real high when I feel that any member of the work team gets that motivation to go that extra mile, spend that extra hour or to pack in that one tight day even tighter. All this just to see the growth spike that brings a collective smile with its every appearance.
I like to think I’m so lucky to work with our 99force, they take each challenge and surmount it with skill and speed. Talented professionals who pool their resources and grab each opportunity to excel, who stop at no logical limit but instead keep raising the bar and leading their individual teams from the front.
So this one’s for the team, and it’s getting even more switched-on with each passing month! It’s this very vibrant culture of respecting ideas for their merit, and working like an engine with all pistons firing that makes us who we are, brand99!
