SUPERIOR SALES DISRUPTION
Call to Courage
In the words of Joseph Campbell “The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek.” And so is a career that lies at 3M, a storied innovation powerhouse. The major lesson is that when you find the courage to enter that cave, you’re never going in to secure your own treasure or your own wealth; you face your fears to find the power and wisdom to serve others. Rhonda McAllister has spent her career at 3M and is the rare leader who continually seeks wisdom from the one company. From the podcast we learnt that if you get the privilege to work at a company like 3M why would you leave?
“When I look at the profile and in particular my personal strengths, it is very evident that I am an attitude person. I remember carrying a poem when I went to sales or marketing meetings, and it was all about attitude. Attitude is everything, and it’ll get you through anything. I have always been aligned to the innovation and creative side of 3M & when I went into marketing, I soon realised that to be a good marketer, you also needed to be in sales. So I’ve done both.”
