Great Leaders: Fan the Potential in Every Employee
Predictable Success CEO Les McKeown explains how focusing on not-so-random acts of leadership can build a powerful company culture.
Leaders who go to extraordinary lengths can become business legends, but there are disadvantages as well.
Focus on encouraging small and large acts of leadership from employees throughout your organization.
You need to understand whether your employees are visionaries, operators, processors, or synergists.
To create an encouraging environment, you need to first hire the right people and then make sure that expectations and skills are aligned.
Build leaders by teaching this concept: "When I am in a group or team environment, I place the interests of the enterprise ahead of my own."
Your employees need the right tools to perform not-so-random acts of leadership.
Once you start looking at your employees' actions, you'll end up spotting massive leadership potential that you've overlooked.
