Promote A Clash of Ideas

  • Use technology to improve communication.
  • Treat turf wars as the enemy of communication.
  • Maintain a real, no b.s. open-door policy.
people over plans
People Over Plans
  • “Plans don’t accomplish work. Goal charts on walls don’t accomplish work…It is people who get things done.”
  • Count on people more than plans or structures.
  • Assume that people are competent, and that every job counts, until proven otherwise.
  • Spend at least 50% of your time on people.

The Powell Way
  • “The leader sets an example. Whether in the Army or in civilian life, the other people in the organization take their cue from the leader – not from what the leader says, but what the leader does.”
  • Answers the question of “How do you get people to accept you as leader?”
  • Don’t be overreliant upon organizational charts or unduly impressed job titles.
