One secret to engaged employees: true passion for their work. Those seeking increased productivity and employee satisfaction can learn something from the metal plates attached to vehicles.
In 1985, Dr. Roy Koltz, Jr discovered a vintage 1913 Mississippi license plate. With only two in existence this scrap of metal is worth more than $35,000. Other plates are worth nearly twice that, including what Forbes contributor Zach O’Malley Greenburg calls the “holy grail of license plates”: the 1921 Alaska, priced at $60,000.
It’s hard to use words to capture the passion radiated by these collectors. Their dedication, patience and meticulous manner resonates in the room. Stakeholder enthusiasm is a tremendous differentiator in any endeavor, and people who love what they do are more effective and less afraid of failure.
