And Other Simple Truths of Leadership

Leadership

You may have heard the quote. . .”The speed of the leader will determine the rate of the pack.” Well here’s another one for you. . .”The attitude of the leader will determine the attitude of the pack.”


Leadership who me

Some people probably think that the leader never has a negative thought. How wrong they would be! Like every human being, he/she has doubts, fears, and disappointments in his/her life. As a leader, however, we must manage our attitudes. Do we need to be perfect? Of course not. But, we can never underestimate the influence that our actions and our attitudes will have on our team.


Leadership who me

Churchill said, “The price of LEADERSHIP is RESPONSIBILITY.”

. . .and part of that responsibility is to STAY POSITIVE whether you feel like it or not.


Leadership who me

I’ve got a friend who is 65 but looks like he’s 55. I saw him the other day and said, “Tony, you look great.” He said, “I feel great! I got a second job.” I said, “A second job? I thought your import business was doing well.” He said, “It is. My second job is on the treadmill from 6-7 every morning. When I started looking at it as a second job, I showed up whether I wanted to or not! The pay is lousy, but the benefits to my health and my attitude are priceless!”


Leadership who me

Change your THOUGHTS and change your WORLD.

--Earl Nightingale


Companies don t succeed people do

Companies don’t succeed. . .PEOPLE DO.

To build a “customer first” culture, you must put them second. Your employees must come first, because there is a rule of thumb in business that says, “your people will only treat your customers as well as they are being treated; thus to have satisfied customers, they must be served by passionate people.”


Leadership who me

Howard Schultz, the founder of Starbucks, realized that the key to his success was to recruit well-educated people who were eager to communicate his passion for coffee. This, he felt, would be his competitive advantage in an industry where turnover was 300 percent a year. To hire the best people, he also knew he must be willing to pay them more than the going wage and offer health benefits that weren’t available elsewhere. He saw that part-time people made up two-thirds of his employee base, and no in in the restaurant industry offered benefits to part-timers.


Leadership who me

Schultz went to work in an effort to sell his board of directors on increasing expenses while most restaurant executives in the 1980s were looking for ways to cut costs. Initially, Schultz’s pleas to investors and the board fell on deaf ears because Starbucks was still losing money. But Schultz was persistent. He was looking long term and was committed to growing the business with passionate people. He won, and said many times afterwards that his decision was one of the most important decisions, if not the most important, that he made at Starbucks. His employee retention rate was about five times the industry average, but more importantly, he attracted people with great attitudes who made their customers fell welcome and at home.


Leadership who me

Over the years, Schultz often showed how much he cared for his people. Early on July 7, 1997m, he and his family were asleep at home in East Hampton, New York. The phone rang and he learned that three Starbucks employees had been murdered in a botched robbery in Washington, D.C. A stunned Schultz immediately chartered a plane and arrived there before 9 a.m. that morning. He stayed for a week working with the police, meeting with the victims’ families, and attending funerals. He ultimately decided that the future profits of the store would go to organizations working for violence prevention and victims’ rights. Howard Schultz “gets it.”


Leadership who me

We aren’t in the coffee business serving people.

We’re in the people business serving coffee.


Know the magic of pulling together

Know the Magic of Pulling Together

A man was lost while driving through the country. As he tried to reach for the map, he accidentally drove off the road into a ditch. Though he wasn’t injured, his car was stuck deep in the mud. So the man walked to a nearby farm to ask for help. “Warwick can get you out of that ditch,” said the farmer, pointing to an old mule standing in a field. The man looked at the decrepit old mule and looked at the farmer who just stood there repeating, “Yep, old Warwick can do the job.” The man figured he had nothing to lose. The two men and the mule made their way back to the ditch. The farmer hitched the mule to the car. With a snap of the reins he shouted, “Pull, Fred! Pull, Jack! Pull, Ted! Pull, Warwick!” And the mule pulled that car right out of the ditch. The man was amazed. He thanked the farmer, patted the mule, and asked, “Why did you call out all of those names before you called Warwick?” The farmer grinned and said, “Old Warwick is just about blind. As long as he believes he’s part of a team, he doesn’t mind pulling.”


Leadership who me

Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision. The ability to direct individual accomplishment toward organizational objectives. It is the fuel that allows common people to obtain uncommon results.
