Whether you are an executive in a major international enterprise or the sole proprietor of a small company with three employees we all need to be great leaders. However, being a great leader is hard work.
Imagine yourself standing at a busy intersection in a major city where you are surrounded by traffic, noise and thousands of pedestrians creating an environment where there are many inputs to manage and seemingly unlimited demands on your time.
The key to great leadership is your ability to clear out the distractions, identify critical issues, communicate clearly and maintain consistency in your messaging. It is only then you will be able to effectively lead your teams to achieve your goals.
Ten years ago, I was asked to speak to a group of second-year MBA students about what it takes to have a successful career.
As I was preparing for this speech, I developed Joe’s TOP FIVE as a pragmatic and straightforward system for leading complex global organizations and shaping your legacy through the development of extraordinary leadership teams.
IT ALL BEGINS WITH THIS SIMPLE CARD!
JOE'S TOP FIVE
- IT’S NOT ABOUT YOU!
- PARTICIPATE … BE PRESENT!
- LISTEN… WHEN YOU ARE TALKING YOU ARE NOT LISTENING!
- MAKE YOUR OWN DECISION AND BE PREPARED TO DEFEND THEM
- ABOVE ALL … BE MORE THAN YOU SHOW!
