The Times recently published their favourite top 50 quotes about leadership and while many were about following, and delegating, we found that the Innasol spirit of our DNA is actually about inspiring positive change, future thinking and being the ones to actually tread down the path.
Here are our top 4, and what we think about them >
4. “Great leaders are almost always great simplifiers, who can cut through argument, debate, and doubt to offer a solution everybody can understand.” – Colin Powell
We love this quote because it really defines how we feel about renewable energy. There are many ‘fancy offers’ out there, between fossil fuels, sustainable energies, the way our grandparents used to fuel, and cavemen strategies. There is complexity and simplicity in everything in business, and what we love to do the most is to simply find, the best renewable energy solutions that save the environment, and your budget at the same time. To make it easy. To make it doable. And to make it mean something. That is why we have the UK’s largest network of installers who are professional (and passionate) about helping you find the best biomass boiler system for your home or business. We have done all the work at the back end, gone to forests, looked in pipes, blown up a few eyebrows and found the best set of systems for you to keep your toes warm in winter. Although you might find it hard to think about it in our summer heatwave at the moment. While you are cooling off, we are still close to the flame, looking at how we can make things even more easy for you – incentives, discounts, fuel suppliers, best installers, help and sevice, the BEST equipment. We are onto it, and we will give it to you, with a simple consultation, a chat at your place with an expert who talks plain english when describing the awesome technology solutions we made for your home and business.
16. “Earn your leadership every day.” – Michael Jordan
We fight, every day, for the ideas we have in sustainable business. We are constantly looking for the best-in-class solutions and installers. We work from Westminster to your backyard, to give our best and search and implement the best ideas we can for today’s energy needs. We earn our spot, in your basement, and on a parliamentary roundtable in the same way, by simply showing up, and doing a good job. Like Mr Jordan, shooting hoops daily, making the practice, and putting in the tough hours so when it comes to game time, we are ON and running like the bull.
17. “Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.” –Jack Welch
The big picture of renewable energies is what is important to us. We, with Air Source Heat Pumps, Ground Source Heat Pumps, Solar Thermal and Biomass (our favourite) work together as a group to help bring the entire industry forward. We really agree with Mr Welch in his point that success is about the big picture, and growing others in the process. That is why we like to work as a network, both with our brothers and sisters in other renewable energies, and looking to grow the overall segment of sustainable heating together AND with our installers who are the coolest guys for heating (boom boom cha!). Seriously though, it is from being at the cutting edge of the science that is around turning wood into practical energy, and forestry understanding about what is BEST for overall forest growth, to working with installers who are the local heroes in your area for championing great sustainable energies. Growing others means from the actual woodland to Wiltshire, biomass boilers to Buckinghamshire, and Innasol to Ipswich.
22. “To have long-term success as a coach or in any position of leadership, you have to be obsessed in some way.” – Pat Riley
We are obsessed with the science and proof of sustainable energy, and we are pleased that it really delivers savings to your heating budget. There is a great result that comes from being single-minded about focusing on GREAT renewable energy, and that is why we were recently renamed as a ‘superpower’. What makes us both super, and powerful, is this obsession on quality and proof. Our Austrian founder’s roots are mathematical and fanatical when it comes to counting wood pellets, sustainable forestry management, boilers and the great partners we get to work with. Some people think we are a bit nuts because we demand studies and proof on every claim made, but we think this is our job to be guardians of the earth, and a real benefit to your home or business. We do the work, we pay attention to each tree, pellet and calorific heating contribution so you can focus on what you do best. Let us focused on being obsessed, because honestly, we really like it. Viva la nerding out ;-)
