Episode notes:

  • Many leaders that I work with were not positive role models so I learned how to be a good leader from learning what I shouldn´t be doing.
  • I was able to surround myself with people were smarter than me as a way to build my success.
  • For every plus that you put in you there is a higher order of risk, so if you have creativity plus an idea plus people you are increasing substantially the level of risk involved.
  • Leadership is a big driver for success.

Ego is a big factor with humans and with leaders, the leaders that I have been around and that have been most successful are those who can check their ego at the door and were more in service.

  • Combination of detail and management with vision, see what other people cannot see.
  • Some people are natural born leaders and leadership is both nature and nurture, but if he had to give a percentage he would say it is 20% nature and 80% nurture.
  • Strength and charisma have always been attractors, they can go a long way in leadership.
  • The thoughtful, pensive, reflective leader is underrated.

Failure is your best teacher.

  • Networked leadership requires a very different skill as a leader.
  • I always looked at the longevity of leadership.
  • There is a high price to pay for being a leader. Serious leaders take that work with them 24/7 often at the cost of your own health.

There has never been such a need for great leaders as now, with all the challenges in the world.

  • Leadership has become more complex, capacity for storytelling, adaptive learning. Leaders can never stop learning. Capacity to influence thinking.
  • Stewardship and creativity as essential traits of leadership.
  • Creating a product that adds value and is sustainable is not afraid of hearth, it is difficult but definitely not the norm.
  • All leaders have to deal with burnout because they give more to the world than they take in.
  • It´s hard for leaders to delegate, especially for entrepreneurial leaders.
  • Being very clear on what you want early in your life.
  • Leadership can be learned.

I wish everybody to be well, loved, to do the right thing and to contribute.
