Thoughts from this episode:
Start with explaining the why.
The why establishes urgency, reason, purpose, passion, and a feeling of resilience.
Great leaders are thinking about the decisions they’re making not because they want to grow an organization, but because they want to grow people.
Who is your leadership going to affect?
Who is responsible for making sure your decisions as a leader are being followed through?
What is a win?
Set a deadline.
A leader that doesn’t give their teams deadlines is a leader that is running around with all loose ends.
Define how much money, time, who is in charge of following up, and set a deadline.
