Why it’s a Path to Elite Level Leadership

Category : Training

People often ask me why it is a Path to Elite Level Leadership. I tell them, it’s a path because not everyone will travel it. Everyone will not become an Elite Level Leader. It’s like experiencing a:

  • Championship or MVP athlete
  • Award winning performer
  • World-renowned surgeon or economist
  • 5-star chef

Just as a journey may start on a 4-lane highway. It then narrows to a 2-lane road. Eventually, it it is reduced to a path as there are fewer and fewer travelers.

Category : Leadership

Honored to meet the leadership G.O.A.T. Ken Blanchard at the San Diego Leadership Forum Summit this morning. I read Ken’s first book, “The One Minute Manager” in 1982. He has since authored or co-authored 60 books, mostly on or related to leadership.

I wanted to meet Ken since I learned The Ken Blanchard Companies was based here in San Diego, but COVID hit and I waited to reach out to him. I got the chance to meet him this morning and am looking forward to further discussions and sharing my upcoming leadership book with him. Thanks for your great remarks during the summit. It’s something we all need to hear more of today.

Elite leadership is what separates great leaders from good ones. It’s the same thing that separates good athletes from elite athletes. Elite athletes focus on improving their craft by following a regular practice and improvement regimen. Elite athletes are the ones who win championships, most valuable player awards and/or Olympic medals. This approach to improvement is also followed by award winning TV and movie performers, musicians and vocalists, chefs and renowned artists.

We have long identified empathy is a top leadership quality and it’s one of the qualities that the best leaders are ‘wired’ with.

It’s taking on a new level of meaning and priority. Far from a soft approach it can drive significant business results.

You always knew demonstrating empathy is positive for people, but new research demonstrates its importance for everything from innovation to retention. Great leadership requires a fine mix of all kinds of skills to create the conditions for engagement, happiness and performance, and empathy tops the list of what leaders must get right.
