What Is Great Leadership
The world is full of leaders, from newly minted entrepreneurs to highly paid CEOs. In fact, there are nearly a quarter million CEOs in America alone. But according to Gallup’s yearly report, The State of the American Manager, only one in ten people possess the talent that’s required of a CEO. If 90 percent of people lack innate management skills, how the heck will most survive as CEOs?
CEOs can build incredible cultures, grow companies, and enhance the bottom line. But without the right guidance, they can just as easily burn out, cause cultures to stagnate, and lead their organizations to ruin.
The reality is: what we believe makes a great leader—knowing what decisions to make, juggling an exponential workload—is actually 180 degrees from what the best leaders do. Effective and successful leadership is built from a bundle of seemingly contradictory practices that can baffle even the most experienced CEOs.
