Philosophy of Leadership

  1. I believe that people are fundamentally good and that they show up at work each day hoping to be fulfilled by a leader who gives them meaningful work to do.

  2. I believe that organizational change is like a ripple on the water, when one leader adopts a new way of behaving and achieves better results, others will follow.

  3. I believe that it is truly is lonely at the top and that most leaders are, at their core, uncertain about the best way to handle complex situations – thus the counsel of a trusted adviser is precious and it often the key to sustained success.

  4. I believe that “challenge is the crucible of greatness” and that we owe it to those around us to bring challenge to their lives in ways which may seem overwhelming at first, but when achieved, bring great pride.

  5. I believe that we achieve our best results when we work with those who are intentional about encouraging the best efforts of others around them. We owe it to each other to look deeply for the best motivations of others and to mine for their inner genius.
