The Engaging Leader Diary – Are you a leader of distinction?

 

This week I was speaking to Al Cole who is interviewing me for his show ‘People of Distinction’ that airs on CBS Radio in the United States.
It got me wondering what does it take to truly be a person of distinction?

Where we got to in our conversation was that people of distinction often have a deeper why. A deep reason for what they do that drives them over enormous odds to achieve something that is worthy of the label.

This deeper why is something I have noted in really engaging leaders. It is a passion for their business that also extends to the people within it. At the end of the day without people (employees, clients and suppliers) we have nothing. Better to get clear about your deeper why and then engage these people in that vision. Create a movement and profits, retention, productivity start to flow ………..And don’t forget the legacy of a person of true distinction my friend Stephen Sutton who sadly died of teenage cancer in the photo below ‘the time to get started is now’.
