Excellence: Personal Development

We all want to be the best version of ourselves but we need the right relationships with the right people to help us.

The right relationships are formed from shared core values and beliefs. Opposites do not attract when it comes to core values. Only when we have right relationships can we truly begin to personally develop toward what is excellent.

The right people are those who push us in our thinking and encourage us to have other mentors and perspectives. The right people stand for something and know what we stand for. This is why relationships come first in everything we do at Robojuice. Without the right relationships, there is little chance of excellence.

To build the right relationships and build toward excellence we all need people near and far to help us. To connect with people far away we have access to books, podcasts, videos, webinars, and conferences. To connect with people near us we have meetups, seminars, lunches, and coworking spaces.

Here are a few resources and websites to connect to the right people in leadership, marketing, design, and business:

The Refined Excellence

Excellence is a word used to express surpassed expectations and better than expected results. We like the word because it captures what we are trying to deliver for our client. The work that we do, how we do it and what we deliver to our client needs to be excellent.

The quality of work we deliver is very important to us and is part of our overall commitment to do the right thing. We do not deliver the project until we feel we have done excellent work. If that means we choose to add a few extras or spend more of our own time to make sure the code is clean, then we do what is necessary — all while staying within the approved schedule.

The processes we use to facilitate a project and the relationship we have with our client should also show excellence. We want them to feel like we do more than just the basics to mange their project and to know we enjoy working with them as individuals and as a collective team.

Ultimately, we want our client to feel what we did for them was more than they expected and the best value they would get for the cost of the relationship with us.
