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’.

In my opinion, after 10 years of hosting the Business Elevation Show, I believe that the average quality of consciousness of the world’s entrepreneurs and business leaders must elevate in order to build organizations that solve the world’s problems not add to them. This requires being fully open […]

I was introduced to Chris through Broker Network when he did a really interesting workshop on ‘Leading People including Talent Dynamics’ to myself and other business owners. Since then Chris has worked with our senior management team, bringing us closer together and making us work more effectively together. Going forward I am working with Chris on a 1-2-1 basis which I have no doubt will further my own development. Chris is a true gentleman and a pleasure to spend time with and he has opened my eyes to the importance of engagement of staff.
