Everyone deserves happiness in their personal and professional lives. And at Imagine IT, we believe that happiness is within reach. Our goal is to expand the circle of happ(i)ness into the world. We do this through sound business practices based on our T5 values: Truth, Trust, Tribe, Thrive and Transform. We’ve already explored the first three values, truth, trust and tribe. Now let’s take a look at thrive.
How we define thrive
At Imagine IT, we measure health by this benchmark: Healthy things grow. Are your employees growing? Is your business growing? When people and organizations grow vigorously and prosper, they’re thriving. But thriving doesn’t just happen. Just like plants and animals, they need certain ingredients to grow and thrive. How are you nourishing your people and your organization?
Key ingredients for a thriving company
In order to create a company that is thriving, you need two main “ingredients” – a vision and the right perspective on technology.
Maybe you’ve heard the saying, “Where there is no vision, the people perish.” We wholeheartedly believe this. Whether it’s living a thriving life or running a thriving business, looking up from day-to-day demands long enough to cast a vision and chart a course to achieving it is mandatory. Business owners need to constantly ask themselves, “What do we want to do that we can’t do now?” and “If I could grow my business in any way, regardless of cost, what would I do?” People who allow themselves to imagine the possibilities are halfway to achieving them. We work with our partners to encourage these questions and help chart this course.
Technology as an asset
When our partners dialog with us about their vision for their businesses, we emphasize the importance of viewing technology as a strategic asset. Our partners don’t view technology as an expense but as a vehicle they can ride on the journey towards achieving their goals. Digital transformation, or the process of solving problems with ever-evolving digital technology, is the ticket to ride, simplifying and streamlining business processes and making it easier to get from Point A to Point B.
