The difference between success and failure is often mindset and attitude. Believe in yourself!
Great companies have the discipline to do whatever it takes to become the best, then seek continual improvement from there. Overnight success is bullshit. Be disciplined.
We are all excited and passionate about our business, but great leaders are great listeners. Shut up and listen.
4. No, Thanks
It is a fallacy that great leaders always find a way to say yes. Saying no to the wrong deals or opportunities can save you from a lot of pain. Say no!
Manage energy, not time. Overworked and overstressed people make mistakes, are sloppy, and contribute to failure. Focus on results. Have balance!
It’s not all about the people; it’s all about the right people. Hire and surround yourself with people of character and similar values. Build your team!
Curiosity is the greatest leadership trait of all, it is the catalyst of creativity and innovation. Embrace curiosity!
Know those you serve so you can deliver the solutions they need better than anyone else. Know thy customer!
Follow through on your customer promise. Making excuses is unacceptable. Integrity!
Defined core brand values will guide you and your company when making important decisions and doing work. Live your values!
Genuine expertise is more valuable than ever to a business. Don’t fear being the best. Develop expertise!
Strategic and clearly defined goals clarify what your company should expect to accomplish over time. Set goals for all aspects of your business. Shoot for the moon!
