Empower Your People to do Great Things

And so it begins … political season officially kicks off today with the Iowa Caucuses as America seeks to find its next leader.
In the spirit of the season, I was reminded of the quote from former US president, Ronald Reagan … “The greatest leader is not necessarily the one who does the greatest things. He is the one that gets the people to do the greatest things.”
[Tweet “The best teams have leaders who are focused on making those around them better.”]
As you begin a new month of work you will be tempted to focus on your job. If you really want to be great, spend a bulk of your time focused on your people. Empower, resource, and encourage others to do great things and you will be well on your way to greatness.

Great Leaders Consistently Work on Their Character

Never does a day go by that I don’t think about working on my character.
The truth is, I think about my character even more than I do my conduct. Why? Because, through the years, I have discovered that my character always determines conduct.
Whether you call it character and conduct, or as I like to say, integrity and influence, if you want to change the things you do, look in the mirror and start with who you are.

As a kid, like many of you, whenever it was report card time, my parents would always ask the same question first. “What is your conduct grade?” Never did they ask, “How did you do in math?” Never, “Did you bring up your science grade?”
It was always, “Let me see your conduct grade.”
The reason? They knew my conduct was a reflection of my character.
So how is your conduct grade these days?
The answer to that question is not simply a reflection of what you do. It is an indicator of who you are.
[Tweet “You will never be a great leader without great character.”]
Why not start with the one in the mirror and work on your character today? I know I plan to.
Leadership Begins at Home,

Everyday Excellence

When I ask people to name organizations known for excellence and high performance, the usual suspects surface: the Navy SEALS, Apple, Disney, Starbucks and sometimes the New York Yankees or San Antonio Spurs. All of these have earned a reputation for excellence in their field.

Today's Challenge: Team Size

One of the many decisions every leader must make is what structure will best enable his or her organization to accomplish its work. If you decide a team approach makes sense, then you get to wrestle with the question… How many people should be on a team?
