What traits do individuals who help a company reach the next level have?

I have found that remarkable individuals who play a key role and make an impact have a vision. They are clear about what they want to accomplish and by when. Their vision is aligned with the company’s vision and they are confident about their role and responsibilities. They are accountable with a deep sense of personal commitment.Those key leaders and staff are passionate about their work; they are excited and fully engaged.

Those key leaders and staff are passionate about their work; they are excited and fully engaged. I asked myself, “Why is passion-enhancing performance and a company’s profit?”

The conclusion I came to is as follows:

Passion is the fuel to reach the next level.

Passion opens up something special inside of us, bringing out many of our best traits and talents. Passion noticeably increases:

~Curiosity to continuously learn
~Inquisitiveness to find creative solutions
~Quest for excellence and beyond
~Willingness to take risks
~Energy and excitement
~Best use of time, as time becomes precious
~Appreciation for life and the opportunity to contribute at work
~Sense of well-being and confidence
~Eagerness to move closer to the goal without doubt or fear
~Utilizing best skills and talents, and always improving in these areas
~Willingness to challenge ourselves to get out of the comfort zone
~Use of skills we didn’t know we had, bringing out untapped talent

With passion, we go above and beyond without feeling it and we get energized from our work.

If a great mind like Albert Einstein credits passion as the catalyst to his success wouldn’t it make sense to explore what you are passionate about to unleash your full potential?
