KEY TAKEAWAYS:

RECOGNIZE THE TRUE STRENGTH OF YOUR ORGANIZATION. The potential of an organization rests on the strengths of its people. Surround yourself with people who are better than you.

 

DON’T RELY ON LEADERSHIP PROGRAMS. Programs come and programs go; focus on creating a leadership culture.

 

RECOGNIZE THE POWER OF CULTURE. “Culture” is a combination of what you create and what you allow. Culture does not happen accidentally, and it is one of the primary jobs as a leader.

 

UNDERSTAND HOW TO LEVERAGE COMPANY VALUES. Don’t just come up with a list of words. Values should move people emotionally. “Behavioral” values already exist in your organization. To help identify them, look at your top team members and ask yourself, “What do they have in common?”

 

CULTURE HELPS ENSURE CONSISTENCY WHEN A LEADER IS ABSENT. Greatness is not what happens in our presence; it’s what happens in our absence.

 

FEEDBACK AND LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT ARE THE SAME THING. When feedback is motivated by love, it can be an incredibly powerful tool to help leaders grow and development.

 

COMMIT TO “YOU-BASED” LEADERSHIP. Make your leadership about those you lead, not about yourself. The most important thing to do as a leader is to get out of the way. Empower others, and get out of their way, and commit to helping them be the best possible version of themselves.
