It was fantastic having a podcast with someone who clearly loves developing an A team. Not only does John seek external perspective but is also savvy enough to encourage ‘reverse’ mentoring. Not just from industry ‘doyens’ but also from those just starting. “You can watch you can learn from them. You need to know from those younger people how it is that they, manage their lives, how they get information, how they get content.” You can’t stop the change that’s going to occur. So I think it’s better off getting involved and understanding why. And again, getting into that strategy and the plan going forward with the new challenge.
The Pharmacare phrase is to create tomorrow today. Somebody is sitting in the shade today, because somebody planted that tree many years ago. And I think that’s what businesses have to do. We all get picked off with products and ideas. The market catches up to you. So the growth aspect and the challenging everybody within our business of what’s the next idea and what’s the next opportunity is embedded in our business. It is our mantra; it’s what we’re all about. So that won’t change as a business. But it’s really important when people come into our business that not just they’re told that, but they see it, they understand the history, and they live it as well. People enjoy being at Pharmacare because they can see that what they do makes a difference and they buy into the team aspect of the results that we achieve.
Anyone now want to work at Pharmacare?
