LEADERSHIP INSIGHTS

  • Three steps to create engagement: 1. Awareness (what/why), 2. Engagement (how), 3. Commitment (when)
  • Unleash innovation by inviting critical thought. Make it safe for someone to challenge.
  • Provide financial incentives for quantitative benefit to the business that come through innovation.

 

QUESTIONS TO INSPIRE US TO ACTION

  • What is some lesson, saying, or experience that continues to influence your leadership to this day? Do not accept anything people say or do unless you can validate it.
  • Use three descriptors to finish this sentence: “A leader is…” Bold, brilliant, and has foresight.
  • What is a question that leaders should be asking either themselves or others? What are the implications of your decisions and ideas over the horizon?
  • What book would you recommend to leaders? Jeff’s reading formula: Always be reading 1) a technical book/textbook on your profession, 2) the pop book that people are talking about, 3) an autobiography of someone within your industry, 4) a how-to book within your space.
  • If you could get every listener to start doing something THIS week to help them be a better leader, what would it be? Think legacy. Stop and recognize what it is you are doing that people will remember – your actions, behaviors, comments.
  • As a general life principle, is it better to ask “why?” or “why not?” “Why not?” because it is contrarian. It challenges people to a deeper thought.
