Leadership has always been an internal quality. To lead outwardly you must first learn to lead from within. #coachjoe


The leadership Fallacy: As a student of leadership for the past 3 decades, this is what I have learned that the image we conjure up when we think of our leaders is a false image.

👉🏻We think that leadership is being in the right place at the right time.
👉🏻We think that leaders are “selected” to lead
👉🏻We think that leaders are “made”
👉🏻That in order to lead, we need permission.

It’s said leaders are supposed to create followers.  This seems paradoxical to me.  I contend leaders create more leaders, thus multiplying the role of leadership.

Seth Godin said, “When the world changes management always fails because we don’t understand how to move forward. The world is changing whether you want it to or not and faster than ever before. In the face of that change – we’re not going to be able to “manage” our way out of it. We’re going to have to lead!”

Connected teams lean into the storm by immersing themselves in the controlled chaos. Stretching the current state of thinking to a desired state of achieving. #coachjoe


Conceptualize the gap between the current behavior and desired results.

👉🏻Trust is the first building block to bring solutions to the surface.

🏆 Respect for talent. Identify gaps, celebrate wins, and learn together.

🔋 High-performance teams work with a shared purpose.

👉🏻High-performance teams focus on the goals by providing sustainable solutions.

🆑 There needs to be clear roles and responsibilities that align with expectations and accountability.

💻 Effective meetings should drive discipline, effective decisions, and accountability.

When you are around the right people, you get it. There’s an undeniable magnetic pull. #coachjoe

How do responsible leaders win in a highly competitive environment?
