NAIROBI, Kenya, Aug 8 – Dr Chris Kirubi is a household name in the country, having launched some of Kenya’s most successful businesses spanning from media, fast moving consumer goods and real estate among others.

Capital Business recently had a sit down with the billionaire businessman to talk about the recipe for success, including his strength for influencing people for innovation. Below are his top secrets:

Casting a clear vision

If you want to have a successful business venture, make sure you have a very clear vision of what you want to do. When a vision is clear, execution also becomes clear, which sets you up for success.

Promote free thinking

The first step to becoming successful within an organization has always been inspiring creative thinking. This creates room for innovation which steps the company up for success.

Trust and believe in people’s potential

To be successful in business, you will need to learn to trust your employees because when they sense you trust and believe in their capabilities, they do better. Micromanaging employees on the other hand makes employees insecure, which is a breeding ground for failure.

Coaching and Mentorship

Train your employees helps in improving their skills and helps reduce weak links that could have resulted in failure. Mentorship enables employees to contribute ideas that help a company. It also encourages goal setting, which contributes to the company’s success.
