SUMMARY:

How does intuition and creativity intersect with day-in, day-out, practical leadership? What does it take to overcome fear and insecurity, even when the stakes are high and the future of your company may rest on the next great creative design? In this episode, Craig Groeschel interviews fashion designer, Jerry Lorenzo (Fear of God) and explores topics like weighing data against intuition, how to lead with compassion and empathy, and the critical role of daily disciplines in a leader’s life.

 

KEY TAKEAWAYS:

DATA VS. INSTINCT: Keep instinct ahead of data; let the data support your decisions, not necessarily become the basis for them.

COMPETITION: Watching others’ success can push you to greater things.

OTHER-FOCUSED: Compassion and empathy are critical tools for a leader. Once you’re leading with a heart that has compassion for others, you can take yourself out of the equation. Let your vision be guided by what you can give to the world; nothing is really yours until you give it away

SELF-LEADERSHIP: Prioritize nourishing yourself each morning, before you start your work. Ask, “how can I get better so that I can better serve the people I’m leading?”

THE COST OF SUCCESS: There’s never a time to coast. Others paid a cost for you to get where you are. How are you stewarding that?

THE PRIVATE PRICE OF PAIN: Don’t let your work be dictated by your moods. Show up, whether you “feel like it” or not.

DISCIPLINE: If you struggle to embrace discipline, you will struggle to lead.

LOOK AT INTENTION BEFORE OUTCOME: If there are performance issues, don’t merely focus on what is or is not getting done, focus on why there may be performance issues. What’s going on in someone’s life?

RISK: Discipline and practice helps combat insecurity and fear.

ADDING VALUE AND MISSION: The way you do one thing is the way you do all things.
