What Makes Tate Publishing The Best
I am often asked what sets Tate Publishing apart and why are we able to succeed when others fail. The answers are simple. First, we believe in what we are trying to accomplish, a great company, individual, family, really anything needs a great set of values or moorings it can hang onto and believe in. At Tate Publishing we believe we are changing the world through our books. That is not something we take lightly, we truly believe our authors are changing the very world we live in. My parents who founded Tate Publishing had a simple desire, deliver the best books possible to the marketplace and change the world through content and success. We accomplish this everyday at Tate Publishing.
The second key to success at Tate Publishing is that believe we have recruited the most talented staff in the industry. When executive staff members are interviewing or talking with potential job candidates several things are emphasized. First, any employee that needs to be managed is probably a bad fit for us. We believe that individuals that need to be tightly managed are never going to make the company better. Great employees don't need to be motivated, they motivate others to greatness. If you walk the halls of Tate Publishing you will get the feeling that our staff is accomplishing great things everyday and bringing new ideas to the industry. Second, we look for staff that view what they do as a responsibility and not necessarily a job. Now, I realize there are always elements of every job that or not desirable, but the overall aspect or the big picture is what I am referring to. Tate Publishing staff are focused on the big picture or changing the world, serving our authors and artist and delivering the best products and services possible to the industries we do business in.
Third, we hire candidates that are eager to change. One of the best things about Tate Publishing is that we are constantly changing, we are always looking for new services or products to release and have been able to lead the industry because of our commitment to change,evolve, grow and constantly get better. Our staff are encouraged to always view change or even problems as opportunities to serve, develop character and find better ways of doing things.
I am so proud of everyone who works at Tate Publishing and Tate Music Group and any author or artist will know that you are working with a special group of people the second you do business with us. People are what make the difference and people are the reason we are so successful.
This is how we truly distinguish ourselves or a job candidate as the best verses the rest!
Have a blessed day and remember to send any questions you may have my way!
