Gold Medal Leader

An insatiable curiosity allows Leaders to explore the source of opportunities as well as the source of problems. This guarantees that a winning leader will develop an insane number of opportunities for the company while solving the source of revenue-killing problems.  What else makes up a winning leader?  In my 20+ years of working with a wide variety of managers, leaders, and winners; I’ve noticed a lot of traits that they all have in common.  Let’s say these together:

1.  I breath strategic intelligence

          My vision is made into reality. 

2.  I master influence

         Teaching others to be good leaders is what I’m all about.

3.  I build culture

          A definite set of core values defines who I am and guides all aspects of my business.  I’ve eliminated gray. 

4.  I empower others

         Trust is nurtured and has gone viral in my company.

5.  I “get” alignment

          Aligning my goals with the company’s key purpose has allowed me to deliver customer intimacy and competitive sustainability. 

6.  I play to win.

       I dream about crushing the competition. (OK, that’s just me)  Zig Ziglar says it nice:  “Winning isn’t everything, but the effort to win is.”

    As always, excellent insight! How easy it is to overlook these simple but powerful truths, but truly dynamic when they are put into practice. I think the alignment is key, with vision, culture and purpose that we are all headed the same direction.
