I have a friend who calls himself Paul McCartney’s number one fan. He believes that Paul McCartney transformed the world through his songs. Malcolm Gladwell, in Outliers, proves my friend’s point using the 10,000 hour rule for success and the Beatles as an example.
During my time working with leaders we discuss being able to live and lead within their own value systems. Their choice of company usually reflects that they are aligned with the values of the company as well.
What is important is that we accomplish something every day. That takes focus on what is important every day. It is the difference between being busy and being effective.
Think about what a jackass manager looks like to you. How do they walk, say things, get things done? Ugly, right? That is definitely not you. Maybe sometimes, when pushed to a limit.
I coach leaders to become skilled in the practices of good leadership and communication, dramatically influencing profit, production and pride in their organizations. Sometimes I ask dumb questions.
