"My job as CEO is not to lead improvement..." James Reinertsen MD


What do you do when your star performers underwhelm and your organization gets romped? First, sack everyone in senior management and humiliate them publicly.

Off the Cuff

Strong leaders do not ask others to do what they are unwilling to do themselves. They lead by example.

Be prepared to be fired, be prepared to not fit, be prepared to be in a position where others don't agree with you. Be prepared to move on...

Look after your people, they want to feel respected both as professionals and human beings.

If leadership is so important, why are leaders so rare? Are leaders born or can they be taught?
