When Mustang Engineering first began, they worked hard to cultivate a culture full of Mustangers — passionate, hard-working, enthusiastic go-getters who aim to achieve greatness on a daily basis. But, you don’t have to be employed by Mustang Engineering to be a Mustanger, at heart.
At its core, a Mustanger is someone with a “Just Do It” mentality that can come from any company, any line of work. A Mustanger’s energy and enthusiasm is a force multiplier that helps spiral coworker’s attitudes up to create a more positive work environment.
Forbes Contributor Ken Sundheim reiterates, “Hire employees who take action and take chances. While chances may lead to failure, they will more often lead to success and mold confidence while generating new ideas. Stagnant employees won’t make your company money; action-oriented employees will.”
Like the spark plug of a project, a Mustanger’s involvement ignites the passion of others, and yields success in both the project’s outcome and all those who contributed. They take vested interest in the achievement of their team members, because they know a strong team is mutually exclusive to strong leadership–hence the expression, “lead from within.”
It’s no easy feat to continually build up the team that surrounds you, which is why Mustangers make it a point to seek out good mentorship. They identify their own areas of weakness and strive for the knowledge and/or experience to turn them into strengths.
And at the end of the day, Mustangers recognize that work is meaningless without play, and therein lies the work hard/play hard concept! You can’t truly appreciate all you’ve achieved without the wisdom to step back and celebrate the accomplishments.
