Plants & Processes Jack Stack’s “The Great Game of Business,” and “Good to Great” by Jim Collins. Q: What is the biggest mistake you made in business and how did you fix it? My biggest mistake was finally realizing that I had the wrong people in some positions but not doing anything about it because they were good human beings. The solution is to realize that if you terminate someone, that doesn’t mean that they were bad people. It just means that they were in the wrong position or situation that did not maximize their talents and abilities. Q: What do you enjoy most about your job? I enjoy making WS Packaging Group a major player in our market, while meeting the new people, both customers and partners in the business, that come along with our growth. Q: What do you enjoy least about your job? Having to let nice people go. Q: What was the best advice you ever got? Take care of your people and lead by example. Q: What was the worst advice you ever got? 1. Don’t share any more than you have to. 2. Don’t ever go into debt. Q: What advice would you give to someone starting out in this business? Decide on your ultimate goals for the business before you start. It is important to always be heading toward the target you have set for yourself. Don’t do something just because it is “expected” or because it is what someone else thinks you should do. Q: Do you have a personal motto or mantra by which you live life or do business? Several of the familiar clichés: Do unto others; It is better to give than to receive; Try to make the world a better place; etc. www.flexography.org september 2010 FLEXO 35 InternatIonal affaIrs In November 2008, WS Packaging Group and ASK, a company headquar- tered in France, with worldwide customers, formed ASK-intTag LLC, a joint venture that manufactures and markets contactless cards and tickets for U.S . and Canadian markets.
