The 7 Secrets


Let other leaders inspire you, don't let them define you.

Be intentional about developing your own, unique style of leadership, and discover what makes up your Leadership Agenda.


Change the rules of the game.

Question the daily ‘rules of the game' by considering how you would do it differently. Then, do it your way.


Focus on questions, answers will follow.

The role of a leader isn't to have all the answers, but rather to ask the right questions. Facilitate the approach, so the team makes the most informed decision.


Embrace controversy, beware of consensus.

Consensus is a road to mediocrity. To avoid this pitfall, emphasize clarity of positions over consensus of thought. Ensure that 1/2 of your staff disagrees with you on most major decisions.


Bet on horses, not races.

Don't fill pre-defined job descriptions with suitable people; Hire the best people and give them the right set of jobs to do.


Use hierarchy to execute, use anarchy to innovate.

Execution requires order, hierarchy, structure and results; Innovation is stifled by those very attributes. Both hierarchy and anarchy are needed for success.


Focus on selling the business, not running the business.

Focus on creating increased (financial and non-financial) balance sheet assets for the company; annual results will follow.
