OVERFLOW with Kimberly Snider
Dave Oakley: Lead Different. The Good to Great Sherpa Will Be Your Guide.
Welcome to Part 1 of the amazing conversation with Dave Oakley, a proven, successful team builder, leader and consultant. Dave is known as the Good to Great Sherpa. Do you need a Sherpa to guide you through the challenging environment of leadership.
Let’s talk people and culture.
What do you focus on first? During a pandemic, where do leaders invest their energy? Moreover, where have they enabled avoiding a topic, issue or conversation by “kicking the can down the lane” a little further (and not deal with it!)
Dave’s emulates Level 5 Leadership (reference from Jim Collins book “Good to Great”)
· He wonders: what might you regret beyond this pandemic, as a leader?
· He encourages: Face the brutal facts.
• He empowers leaders to Lead Different (he has recognized that the Collin’s body of work lacks explicit “How to” … so he is teaching, motivating, inspiring leaders and team to reach the next level and become Great!)
Today’s episode is a burst of nuggets and inspiration. We cover topics like: Difficult Conversations, Mirror vs the Window, the flywheel, “Who” questions, right people in the “right seats!” vs “BTNs” (Better than Nothing new hires), and regret turnover. The question really is: What is the impact of culture on good to great companies?
It’s time to Lead Different and we are here to help today.
Join our conversation! …and Part 2 next week!
