With the onset of our winter contest and the inevitable dreariness of this east coast winter weather, we cornered our CEO Alex Kutsishin, for a little pep talk to get everyone back to their A game.
So Alex, tell us, what does it take to run a successful company?
“You can’t spell success without team,” Kutsishin explains. (Well actually, you can, but who are we to rain on his parade?)
Many people often ask me what it takes to run a successful company, and what I attribute to the success of my companies. To answer this question without first explaining how I feel about the meaning of success would be cheating you, and me, out of an honest understanding of my psyche.
To be successful in anything I believe you have to have a sustained timeframe of doing great work. This “great work” can be anything from rock climbing to swimming; from being a creative writer to running a global organization. All of these efforts have to be sustained over a long period of time to be considered, in my opinion, as a success.
