Valve. La empresa sin jerarquías, ni jefes, ni estructura ¡y rentable!


 “La investigación indica que los trabajadores tienen tres necesidades principales: un trabajo interesante, el reconocimiento por haber hecho un buen trabajo, y estar al corriente de las cosas que están sucediendo en la empresa” – Zig Ziglar

Half Life marcó una época

El experimento estaba a punto de empezar con todo estaba preparado en la gran urna de pruebas de Black Mesa. Mike activó los sensores del panel de control y bajó la palanca para poner en marcha una corriente eléctrica. Acababa de dar comienzo experimento. Todo parecía ir dentro de los parámetros normales. Sin embargo de repente uno de los indicadores empezó a parpadear, algo no estaba yendo bien.

Casi inmediatamente sonó la alarma, una de esas alarmas típicas de aviso de que algo va mal. Automáticamente unas sirenas dispersaron sus luces amarillas por toda la sala el experimento se estaba yendo fuera de control. Miles de rayos chispas y el electricidad inundaban toda la sala. De repente todo se volvió negro

Puede que te han venido a la cabeza los recuerdos de lo que ha sido uno de los mejores videojuegos de la historia, Half Life. Se puede decir que tanto su primera versión, como sobre todo, su segunda parte marcaron un antes y un después en la historia de los videojuegos. Sobre todo porque a partir de ellos ha surgido toda una plataforma de juegos como el Counter Strike o el Team Fortress.

¿Porque te cuento todo esto? Pues precisamente porque Valve, la empresa creadora de esta saga de videojuegos tan exitosa, tiene una característica que la hace particularmente interesante desde un punto de vista de la organización del trabajo. No tiene ni jefes, ni jerarquías, ni una estructura organizativa permanente.

Ni que decir tiene que una empresa así plantea un montón de preguntas. Vamos a comentarlas.

3 Ways to be the Architect of Your Own Life

Your vision can literally serve as your blueprint for the future. Your ability to walk into the life that you crave depends on the future you see. That’s because anything exceptional that you attempt is often birthed with a vision. It’s the vision that inspires hope when the struggle gets too hard and when calamity becomes all too familiar. That’s why it’s important to not bankrupt your future with a limited vision. It’s hard to move forward confidently without having a good idea of where you are going. Powerful motivator Zig Ziglar always says if you aim for nothing, you’ll hit the mark every time.

There are numerous reasons for lack of vision. Sometimes it’s the pain of previous failures that halts our progress. In such cases, we have to remember that missteps bring experience and provide insight; moreover, our survival is a testimony of our resilience. You can experience a do over! Other times we’re blinded by complacency with past successes. However, suppose we had stopped with the telegram or the telephone?

Architects are skilled in planning, design, and oversight. Architecture isn’t just limited to the construction of buildings. For example, often visionaries are architects of their generations.
When you look at the leaders of yesterday and today, such as Henry Ford, Bill Gates, and Steve Jobs, they are architects of sorts.

They planned, designed, and oversaw huge transitions that, in many cases, redefined how we function and process reality on a daily basis. Similarly, we can be the architects of our own lives. Here are 3 ways to awaken your inner architect!

The Roles of Attitude and Aptitude in Success

Aptitudes come hand in hand with your attitudes. Everyone is born with a basketful of aptitudes we usually call talents.

Aptitudes are our potential to learn skills which we develop and hone through time. We call it growing up. When you learn and begin to utilize your talents to take control of your environment, you begin weaving a particular set of aptitudes. What works, you continue using. What does not, you strive to change. However, aptitudes alone cannot take you all the way through the path to success. It is fully dependent on the very nature of the attitudes you have. This is mainly why your attitude, not your aptitude, determines your altitude.

Run your attitude with humility and you can achieve your highest goals and dreams, use pride and don’t hope to even see a glimpse of them.

“Your attitude, not your aptitude, determines your altitude.” – Zig Ziglar

Success is something that every individual strives to achieve.

Every single person in the world has their own goals and dreams. Young or old, male or female, black or white, rich or poor, all have the same drive and desire to live life in the best way they see possible. Trying to succeed is an integral human behavior that pays no heed to superficial and emotional factors. We are built to want something more, to improve ourselves, and to be a better person than who we were yesterday. How does one succeed in life? This is a common question that one asks countless times. The answer depends on how you view yourself. You know yourself more than anybody else. This means that you can have the most precise answer from within you; and no one else can come as close to the correct answer than you can. However, there is always something you can do to ensure that you do find the answer. Continuar leyendo «The Roles of Attitude and Aptitude in Success»
