What is the Path to Elite Level Leadership?

Category : Leadership

We all know when we are around an elite leader. They are the ones who light up a room by their mere presence. They are the exceptional leaders that people want to work for, people want to hear speak, and people want to know. It’s easy to identify elite leaders by talking to the people that work for and with them. If you listen closely, you’ll here how much of an impact they make in their organization. Their people will readily run through a wall for them. If you can’t meet them in person, read about them on social media. They’ll be the ones not just with the most ‘Likes’, but with the most comments about them from people who currently and previously work for them, which shows their engagement.

Becoming an elite leader is a journey. It takes building on their innate qualities, refining their leadership through daily challenges and embracing a leadership strategy and philosophy that will keep them on track. Many will start on the path like on a multi-lane highway during rush hour. As the journey continues, it narrows to a two-lane road as fewer and fewer people remain on the journey. Eventually, it becomes a path where a single vehicle or person travels on their own.

Not everyone will become an Elite Level Leader, but it’s something we should all strive for because even if we don’t reach the elite level, we may still become a good or exceptional leader.


Reflecting on 2021 and Preparing for 2022

Category : Training

Each January, I like to reflect on what I accomplished in the last year and how those actions have prepared me for the upcoming year.

Reflecting on 2021

Last year was a very big year for me and my leadership training. I had more than enough work to keep me busy. I also wrote new courses on visualizations and storytelling for a couple of universities. I spoke virtually for several conferences and webinars during the year. The highlight was “Ten [Healthcare] Leadership Lessons from the Hamilton Musical” I presented for AMN Healthcare. It was a topic I had been contemplating for a few months and happy to have a chance to develop and present it. It was well received by their participants and has been presented to other healthcare and non-healthcare organizations throughout the year with great reviews.

Featured Elite Level Leader – Dave Raymond, Sweet Baby Ray’s

“Leaders have to do everything they can to set their team up for success.”
– Dave Raymond, Creator and Co-Founder, Sweet Baby Ray’s Sauces

From the book, “The Path to Elite Level Leadership.”

I met Dave at the San Diego airport as were both waiting on our flight to Chicago. He saw my Kellogg shirt and started talking to me about how some students from Northwestern University – Kellogg School of Management consulted with him when his business was growing. I knew about the program since I also took the same class and was involved with consulting another local business while I attended Kellogg. I asked him for an interview for my book and we met at his offices over a lunch of food from the Sweet Baby Ray’s Restaurant.

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.

Leadership Origin Stories – Everybody Has One

In keeping with my theme of the similarities between leadership and superheroes (see my previous Leadership Superpowers article), I thought I’d explore this concept further by examining the relationship between superhero and leader origin stories.
