Source: Bloomberg BusinessweekBloomberg Businessweek spoke with Vince McMahon about the "managerial secrets" of his success. One of the tips shared by the WWE CEO was to listen to your employees.
"You can't say, 'Go do so-and-so,' unless you're willing to do it," McMahon explained. "You can't ask someone to put in a zillion hours unless you're willing to go do it. You can't ask anyone to have a passion for a product unless you have it. Listening is a lost art. I have a unique ability to listen to myself as I'm talking. That's somewhat unique, but I think that to listen is to learn. I think some of things begin from a natural standpoint, and you've got to work at them. You've got to let it evolve."
McMahon also stated that being healthy was important to being successful.
"I average about four hours of sleep," he revealed. "I don't like to sleep. I'm missing something when I'm sleeping. From a personal standpoint, I'm aggressive by nature and I'm truculent by nature. So I need to have a socially acceptable outlet for that. That would be bodybuilding. I enjoy that. It's a challenge to be stronger. I get a lot of enjoyment by training. Nutrition goes with it. I train for my head—not my body. The ancillary benefits are that I'm healthy as a horse. It really does clear my head. It's an opportunity to wash anything from my head, business-wise or personal. That's my moment when I can get into a zone."
McMahon also shared his advice for interviewing job candidates and more, you can check out the entire feature by clicking here.
