Leadership Tips From Lead With Purpose
There is lots of great advice from John Baldoni in his best-seller, Lead With Purpose. Some of my favorites include:
- Purpose can be a powerful catalyst to performance when it is channeled in ways that enable employees to see what is expected of the organization and what is expected of them to help the organization achieve its intended results.
- We follow leaders not because they bring us down but because they lift our spirits with their attitude, words, and examples.
- No job is complete without a review. Look at what went right as well as what went wrong. Often you learn more from mistakes than successes. Sometimes success happens in spite of itself, a function of a good team and good product producing good results. Failure, however, can occur with those same things in place, but with poor managerial decisions.
