Great value-based high performing leaders lead:
· Lead up
· Lead sideways
· Lead down
The best leaders empower junior leaders to take control, take charge and run their departments. They give their underlings and authority to run with ideas, tasks, running their department - give them purpose. They take care of their people, their families, the whole person concept, truly caring, individual approach. To achieve high performance in your company, you need to know about your teams, what impacts them and what is happening in their home and personal life. Understand the values each of the members of your company hold true and honor them.
The traits of veterans are described by Bo as individuals who have undergone significant leadership development, of which many executives never receive. Their training to work in high-performance capacities, in a zero-defect environment and support the mission is a prime example of the leadership qualities necessary for running organizations. When you add purpose, values and mutual respect and there is a perfect set of principles to cultivate to ensure a company thrives.
