The theme of this Audio presentation is to introduce a whole person leadership approach to leading. The presentation is a call to great leadership, leadership that inspires people in organization to become great organization with winning streaks. It is meant to take a tool set approach to have a participant develop a vision for great leadership and a paradigm for leadership in a knowledge centered world with a framework of systems and processes by explaining the skills and tools to enable great leadership. This is a modern view of leadership that gives you examples of how it works and dispels the old school methods of command, control, power of using only a couple of strong individuals to lead.
This is very informative and packed with a lot of leadership principles and examples. The part I took to heart is the journey to execution. The journey of execution starts with developing meaningful goals or WIGS as it calls them, wildly important goals. The second step in this execution is to have lead measures for actions. It gives examples of keeping a compelling scoreboard. Once you have those in place it all creates a cadence of accountability in a way that is engaging of the team. All of this execution is done with a synergy of engaging the team. The 80/20 rule is explained, which is something that I have applied in other disciplines (like software development), 20 percent of the effort will produce 80 percent of the results. It challenges to ask, what 20 percent of things or tasks should your team be focusing on to achieve your WIGS.
If you are not a normal listener to audio books or presentations, do not worry, this is one you can listen to. This presentation has more that seven presenters. It is filled with many dramas, examples and readers. This is a first rate production with drama, background music, sports examples, real life stories, not just a reading.
Definitely an encouraging and personally challenging collection of examples and stories of how big and little things (being a trim tab in your organization is one example) can make an impact.
I strongly recommend this for anyone in business or in an organization that has the desire to make a difference in the organization that they serve (oops work) in. I listened to it twice, because I liked it, but also to get as much out of it and have the ability to apply it, really apply and implement it.
