Ownership Thinking – What is it?

There’s no question that a business owner thinks and acts differently than the employees. Imagine a company where the employees think and act more like owners. That business would probably be more profitable.

Can the business owner persuade employees to act like owners – even if they don’t own shares in the company? Can staff overcome the drug of "Entitlement Thinking"?

It almost sounds like a perverted sense of communism for small business owners. Is it simply a new management trick to get more out of staff? Is it a real attempt at partnership? Could it work? Apparently it is.

Ownership Thinking featured on Business in Motion 
Brad Hams is the founder and CEO of Ownership Thinking, a consulting firm that has helped over 1,000 companies to engage their employees in the success of the business.

Hams wrote the book,
