Lessons From the Mater Man

In a recent blog from Wally Bock's Three Star Leadership website, Bock tells the story of "Mater Man." It's the story of a farmer who sells tomatoes and other produce at a farmers market.

Mater Man is a successful businessman. Mater Man's key to success is following his four rules. I believe we could be better leaders and make our companies more successful if we pay attention to Mater Man's rules. They are:

  1. People will keep coming back if you have high standards and stick to them.
  2. The best thing you can do is whatever's best for your customers. They remember.
  3. Trust pays dividends.
  4. If you're in business you can concentrate on profit or you can concentrate on what makes your customers smile. There's less stress and probably more profit if you maximize the smiles.
