My Philosophy & Leadership Style

My Philosophy

1. Cultivate a Shared Vision

  • Create a company-wide culture that mirrors the organizations leader's vision. 

  • Set high expectations, make measurable, attainable, and time specific goals and expect others in the organization to follow suit. Execution is the key.
     
  • Make everyone in the organization accountable for their actions.
     
  • Build great bench strength and be secure enough to cultivate leaders below you.
     
  • Be the best advocate for your organization. 
     
  • Make your rounds throughout the organization and be seen. 
     
  • Embrace optimism and a "can-do" attitude. Passion is contagious and can have a direct affect on company morale.  

2. Importance of Human Capital

  • Employees are a direct reflection of your management. 

  • Developing others develops you. 

  • Inspire your people. 

3. Continuous Positive Improvement

  • Get the right people on the bus and the wrong people off the bus.
     
  • Become an agent of great and necessary change.
     
  • Only make changes to better the organization as a whole.
     
  • Always challenge assumptions.

Leadership Style

  • Leadership is responsibility.

  • You cannot control everything but you can react positively to each consequence and work towards the best outcome.

  • Always realize that in many situations there is a difference between what you want and what they want. Understand the current reality and the self-interest.

  • Lead by example and be accountable for all actions. Weave this thinking throughout the organization.

  • Always invite candor and listen, listen, listen.

  • Promote lifelong learning and try to learn something new each day.

  • Empower employees and promote autonomy without sacrificing control and leadership.

  • Teach, mentor, inspire, and promote at every level.

  • Show empathy and respect towards everyone and always be nice.

  • Be self aware of who you are, where you came from and make time for reflection every day.

  • Celebrate your success.
