good to great
  • US study by Jim Collins

  • Used the hedgehog concept
  • A culture of discipline
  • Used technology as a lever
  • Employed the concept of a flywheel
  • Resisted the doom loop
level 5 leadership
  • Level 5 leadership is a blend of personal humility and professional will or drive
  • Not dazzling, celebrity leaders with a large ego
  • Want to create a legacy that lived beyond them being the leader
  • 10 of the 11 leaders came from within the company
first who...then what
  • The school bus
  • A team, not just a brilliant individual
  • Rigorous workplace
    • If not 100% sure, don’t hire them
    • If you need to first someone – do it, don’t delay
    • Give good people good opportunities, not just the biggest problems
confront the brutal facts
  • Need to make a series of good decisions
  • Good decisions made on good information
  • Be careful of wishful thinking
  • Hints
    • Ask questions, don’t just give answers
    • Encourage healthy debate
    • When things go wrong, investigate so they are no repeated instead of looking for blame
    • Create mechanisms to show problems quickly without repercussions
hedgehog concept
  • Passion – Understanding what your organisation stands for (values) and why is exists (Purpose and Vision)
  • Best at – What you can uniquely contribute to those your organisation touches
  • Resource Engine – 3 parts – time, money and brand
culture of discipline
  • Entrepreneurial spirit and sense of discipline
  • Don’t just make rules for the wrong people to follow
  • People with self-discipline
  • Think about a “Stop doing list” – de-clutter
  • “Great organisations adapt and endure”
  • Technology is not the difference, but it can accelerate change
  • People factors need to be in place
  • Resist following the latest fashion – decide what is best for the organisation
the doom loop
  • Vicious circle of decisions and changes
  • Looking for a quick fix or breakthrough
  • Rapid change in direction
  • More failures lead to more rapid changes
  • Contrast
    • Doom loop – abrupt, radical and often revolutionary changes
    • Flywheel – slow, steady, momentum building, methodical work

good to great after the GFC
  • 11 of the 60 companies studied have been in decline or closed
  • Circuit City = bankrupt
  • Fannie May = government bail out
  • “How the Mighty Fall” book by Collins notes:
    • Good to Great does not guarantee they stay great
  • Why didn’t these companies stay great?
Five stage in decline
  • Pride – lose humility and believe your own hype that your company can do no wrong
  • Greed – Undisciplined pursuit of more, over reach the company
  • Arrogance – Ignore the warning signs and risk
  • Loss of Focus – rather than return to the Hedgehog concept and flywheel – chase silver bullet or radical solutions
  • Irrelevance or Death – final stage
what is “greatness”?
  • Culture/Ethos?
  • Academic Program/Results?
  • Bible knowledge/worldview?
  • Numbers?
  • Buildings?
  • Financial Reserves?
  • Consider…
    • What is our Core Purpose?
    • What difference do we want to make in our students?
    • Love (1 Cor 12-13)
  • Rift Valley Academy
measuring “greatness”
  • Inputs v Outputs
  • Quantitative and Qualitative data
  • Tracking graduates
  • Longitudinal academic progress
  • Financial sustainability
  • Community Surveys
  • Mission in Community
“Leadership is the art of inspiring others to contribute their best towards a goal”

Martin Luther King Jr

“In business, sport, the military or anywhere you care to mention, we are more attracted to the great who are humble than to the great who know it and want everyone else to know it as well. It is a simple psychological reality for most in our culture that humility (rightly understood) is regarded as beautiful.”

Sir Edmund Hillary

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others. Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus. Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death —even death on a cross!

Philippians 2:3-8 (NIV)

humility generates excellence
  • Human pride is the engine of mediocrity
  • Humility unleashes learning and growth
humility lifts those around it
  • Persuasive
  • Orients everyone toward achieving core purpose/goals
  • Gives the impression the leader is normal
  • Fosters loyalty toward the leader

None of us is an expert at everything, so a little humility is common sense.
