Inspired leadership – Wisdom to do business by
CZ Electronics manufactures and distributes a variety of TVs, sound products and set top boxes to its premium partners, who, in many cases, pass these products on to South African consumers, confident that the quality they have put onto their shelves is tried and trusted.
The diverse CZ Electronics leadership team is always looking into the future with clarity; working consistently to better product offerings and implement innovative new product and manufacturing solutions that serve the South African public at large. And it is this ethos of ongoing improvement that inspires the company’s success.
With that philosophy in mind, we share some wit and wisdom from a few legendary business leaders, whose ideas inspire us to succeed.
“I have always believed that the way you treat your employees is the way they will treat your customers, and that people flourish when they are praised.” – Richard Branson
People are the lifeblood of any business. And as Sir Richard Branson suggests, relationships filter out from within your organisation to the end user or customer.
Learning and observation – the keys to success
“I sold sweets to friends at school, and we would sell sandwiches and ice cream at soccer matches on weekends. So from a very early age I understood what business was about and I knew how to work with money. All the basic business principles I learned from watching my parents.” – Basetsana Kumalo
As ex-Miss South Africa, entrepreneur and speaker Basetsana Khumalo suggests, we are all a product of those who teach and inspire us. Learning is an ongoing process in the drive to constantly improve in business.
Failure is not the end
“Failure is an opportunity to learn and to do better next time. It’s part of the path to greatness, which was never meant to be smooth.” — Khanyi Dhlomo (Ndalo Media, South Africa)
Success is never instant. Only through failed attempts and trial and error can we succeed.
Actions speak louder than words
“The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.” – Walt Disney
No matter how good an idea is, implementation of the idea is what truly brings it to life, as suggested by media mogul and founder of the Disney empire, Walt Disney.
Leadership in action
Oscar Wilde once said, “Be yourself; everyone else is already taken”. Similarly, at CZ Electronics, we believe that every business is unique and needs to be given the room and scope to grow with the help of its leaders, staff members and customers – all of whom form the business’s own identity.
We thank our partners, staff and the South African public for inspiring us to continue succeeding, improving and aiming high.
