Someone like Ken Goodrich knows what it takes to build a winner. They know how to have their pulse on a company and they can see things that others might miss. That is why he has been successful for so long and made so many businesses profitable. He knows what to look for when he hires people and he knows how to hire the right people for the job. Oftentimes, as soon as they walk in the room, he knows whether they have it or not, and whether they are built for the job. It is a gift and he was born with it. He, of course, has honed it over the years and it has only gotten better.
Let me tell you, when he bought Goettl Air Conditioning back in 2012, a lot of people wondered whether he had lost his touch and wondered just what the heck he was doing and what he saw in the company. They saw a company that was on its way out and had no hope for a bright future. They saw no chance of it ever regaining its status. They had burned too many bridges, made too many customers angry, and they had poor employees. How was Ken Goodrich going to fix this and make it better?
People should know better than to doubt Ken Goodrich, however, as his track record speaks for itself. He doesn’t shy away from the challenge. In fact, he is the opposite of most people. When most people see something like Goettl Air Conditioning, they go running 100 feet in the opposite direction.
He started by having a new staff and a new vision. Ken Goodrich can only do so much. He is a smart and wise man but he can’t be in 100 places at once. He needs employees he can trust and people he can count on to do the job the right way. He hired people that cared, had passion, and were ready to work. He also laid out the vision of where he saw the company. Now, the company has almost doubled its profits from 2012 in only 18 months. Maybe they should call Ken Goodrich, The Magic Man with his skills.
