Out of the Box: Innovation Thinking

2014-02-26 20.29.50 [1]On Wednesday, February 26, the IE Israel Club Madrid Chapter collaborated with the Jewish Business Club of Madrid and hosted Mr. Niv Harel, CEO of Holmes Place, Spain. Holmes Place is a worldwide health clubs chain with more than 270,000 subscriptions. The Chain is branded in the high market and offers a unique sport experience.

Lecturing on “inspiring people to move”, Mr. Harel dealt with how to inspire and motivate people to live a better life. He used the metaphor of inspiring people to live a better life in order to explain how to motivate your employee and customers to follow your way; How to lead a company’s vision on the daily operating activities.

We learned that in order to create a sustainable company, it has to define “why the company does, rather than what it does” – and not only to acknowledge the message, but also to live by it – everyday.

2014-02-26 21.50.31 [2]Mr. Harel shared with us Holmes Place’s way of inspiring their vision on a daily basis by the following:

•         Reminding your vision everyday
•         Sharing inspiring stories
•         Asking your customer for feedback on a weekly basis
•         Leading by example

We were honored to host Mr. Harel for sharing his point of view as well as his philosophy for inspiring and leading people.
