Dr. Chris Steven Villanueva Hires Smart People
‘Stay the heck out of your employee’s way,’ says Dr. Chris Steven Villanueva the CEO of MB2 Dental. Dr. Villanueva terms the supervision of workers’ activities in a firm as a waste of time and energy. A competent employee knows what their job entails; consequently, being followed around by the boss only bores them and kills their morale.
In his company, Dr. Chris Steven gives freedom to the employees so that they can exercise their rights. Democracy refers to the freedom of the employees to work without supervision. The aspect forms the organizational culture of MB2 Dental where every employee is a leader. Dr. Chris asks employees to exercise their full authority in the firm and apply their full knowledge without expecting supervision. Asked how this affects them, most of the workers posit that they are happy not to be bugged daily about their duties. Moreover, they say that they are motivated to implement their tasks since they know they owe it to their customers.
Further, Dr. Chris Villanueva further asks employers to hire smart individuals as that is the only way of advancing their firms. At MB2 Dental, most of the workers are smarter than the CEO who hires them solely for that qualification. Dr. Chris believes that a company that has smart employees functions even in the absence of the CEO. Additionally, he posits that these smart workers sharpen him and help him grow the business faster.
The Role of the CEO
According to Dr. Steven, a CEO is a visionary who comes up with the vision of the organization. In an ever-changing world, the CEO must keep improving the vision so that the firm can keep addressing the new needs that arise in the society. As a result, Dr. Chris says that his sole duty at MB2 Dental is to develop new ideas and aspects that keep the firm ahead of its competitors. He admits that he is a night owl who comes up with most of his ideas late in the night. However, he also says that some other ideas are birthed in odd places such as lunch meetings with colleagues or as he plays games with his kids.
Dr. Villanueva also plays the roles of motivating his workers so that they can deliver excellent results. He achieves the above by among other things creating a friendly working environment where workers have fun and interact freely.
