TCS CEO Simon S. Mass wrote twice in Forbes this quarter. If you haven’t had a chance to read the articles, Simon talks about how to deal with and be flattered by copycats and one of the most important business concepts there is - building and maintaining a positive reputation.
At the end of the day, if someone takes the time to copy your work, it means that they have spent time looking at what you are doing and it has inspired them. You must have been successful for them to notice you and want to do the same thing or claim that they are in the same realm as you. The world is full of copying in terms of content. Every idea is borrowed, all or in part, by someone else, with or without them realizing it. There are very few totally unique ideas.
Reputation is everything. If you want a better business, you need to spend some time thinking about how to ensure your business looks different and get above the noise, especially if you're in a crowded sector like real estate. I believe it's your reputation that will set you apart.
Earlier this year, Simon was interviewed by noted media outlet Ivy Podcasts for a discussion on sales and all things business development. Simon talked to the host, Fred Obiero, about trending strategies & innovations in leadership including approaches for winning competitive deals, critical partnerships that promote successful business ventures, and supporting communities through corporate philanthropy initiatives.
There is never a bad time to discuss what is happening in the market, it is by far the most popular interview or comment request that TCS gets from the media. Recently, our CEO Simon S. Mass discussed some of the effects of the pandemic as well as how things may have changed (or not) for the long-term outlook, specifically in the Toronto market.
