Tomorrow I'm addressing a group of business leaders at a boardroom lunch at CEDA, and sharing the results of my research into the source of leadership excellence. One of the questions we'll engage in is: "What can I learn from great leaders that I can apply to my own company?"
I'll start with my favourites:
It's not enough for you and your direct reports to be happy and thriving. Everyone must be operating at their best for your company to achieve its full potential.
We are always learning and growing. Those who aren't are just waiting to die.
Life's too short to waste it in a job you hate. Either find a way to love what you're doing, or go. Now.
